TiDB Cloud Introduction

TiDB Cloud is a fully-managed Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) that brings TiDB, an open-source Hybrid Transactional and Analytical Processing (HTAP) database, to your cloud. TiDB Cloud offers an easy way to deploy and manage databases to let you focus on your applications, not the complexities of the databases. You can create TiDB Cloud clusters to quickly build mission-critical applications on Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

With TiDB Cloud, you can get the following key features:

    TiDB Serverless is a fully managed, multi-tenant TiDB offering. It delivers an instant, autoscaling MySQL-compatible database and offers a generous free tier and consumption based billing once free limits are exceeded.

  • TiDB Dedicated

    TiDB Dedicated is for production use with the benefits of cross-zone high availability, horizontal scaling, and HTAP.

For feature comparison between TiDB Serverless and TiDB Dedicated, see TiDB: An advanced, open source, distributed SQL database.


TiDB Cloud architecture

  • TiDB VPC (Virtual Private Cloud)

    For each TiDB Cloud cluster, all TiDB nodes and auxiliary nodes, including TiDB Operator nodes and logging nodes, are deployed in an independent VPC.

  • TiDB Cloud Central Services

    Central Services, including billing, alerts, meta storage, dashboard UI, are deployed independently. You can access the dashboard UI to operate the TiDB cluster via the internet.

  • Your VPC

    You can connect to your TiDB cluster via private endpoint connection or VPC peering connection. Refer to Set Up Private Endpoint Connections or Set up VPC Peering Connection for details.
