Trove is Database as a Service for OpenStack. It’s designed to run entirely on OpenStack, with the goal of allowing users to quickly and easily utilize the features of a relational database without the burden of handling complex administrative tasks. Cloud users and database administrators can provision and manage multiple database instances as needed.
Initially, the service will focus on providing resource isolation at high performance while automating complex administrative tasks including deployment, configuration, patching, backups, restores, and monitoring.
For an in-depth look at the project’s design and structure, see the Trove Design page.
Trove is constantly under development. The easiest way to install Trove is using the Trove integration scripts that can be found in git in the Trove Integration Repository.
For further details on how to install Trove using the integration scripts please refer to the Trove Installation page.
