SingleStore Managed Service Introduction
SingleStore Managed Service is the world’s first converged cloud database combining transactions and analytics, ingest and query performance, scalability, and resiliency through self-managed clusters while handling all installation-, operation-, and management-related details. SingleStore Managed Service is designed and architected to tolerate and recover from failures. To maintain each cluster’s high availability (HA), SingleStore Managed Service runs on a highly resilient cloud infrastructure with high availability built-in.
SingleStore Managed Service high-level features include:
Cluster configuration, sizing, deployment, and monitoring via a graphical user interface (GUI)
Cloud-agnostic deployments on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform (GCP), with Azure support slated for 2020, and others over time
Secure, with encryption of all data at rest, and TLS/SSL encryption for over-the-wire connections to the cluster
Automated infrastructure provisioning, configuration, elastic scaling, backups, hardware maintenance and failure management, and upgrades

SingleStore Managed Service Maintenance
SingleStore Managed Service maintenance windows occur for all regions on the first and third Saturday of each month, at 12:00 PM EST / 5:00 PM UTC, and typically last for two (2) hours.
Check the status of SingleStore Managed Service.
Email reminders for each upcoming maintenance window are sent to customers who have registered on the SingleStore Customer Portal and have an active SingleStore Managed Service cluster.
These maintenance windows allow improvements, bug fixes, and optimizations to be made to your clusters. On occasion, these updates may trigger a rolling online restart of your cluster. While SingleStore Managed Service clusters are redundant, and restarting nodes should not typically affect your workload, you may experience 2 - 5 minutes where DDL is unavailable during the restart as the Master Aggregator is updated.
