Your data is critical. That’s why we ensure it’s backed up automatically every day. Restore data to any point within the previous seven days.
Databases run in your account’s private network, and only whitelisted requests via the public internet can reach your database. Data is also encrypted in transit and at rest.
In the event of a failure, Managed Databases will automatically switch data handling to a standby node to minimize downtime.
