Compose for etcd

etcd puts the “distributed” in distributed server configuration management. This key/value store holds the always-correct data you need to coordinate and manage your server cluster. etcd uses the RAFT consensus algorithm to assure data consistency in your cluster and also enforces the order in which operations take place in the data so that every node in the cluster arrives at the same result in the same way. This is how etcd ensures the server cluster state is the source of truth.

Deployment configuration

We start etcd deployments with three nodes and two HAproxy portals. The three nodes each contain 256MB memory and 256 MB of storage. Each of the two HAproxy portals have 64MB of memory.

Serious about security

Platform security

Compose uses SSL to help protect your etcd connections. Self-signed certificates are deployed to allow for certificate pinning. IP allowlisting gives server side control of allowed clients, mandatory creation of users with passwords and other best practices ensure the etcd database is ready for the Internet.

Admin controls

The Compose console for managing and viewing your databases operates with its own account scheme, with multiple sub-users and roles to enable you to control access to your database administration. The Compose account scheme also includes the option to use two factor authentication to ensure the right people are logging in.

All your databases, one platform

Compose makes it easy to deploy your favorite open source databases in minutes into your preferred cloud datacenter on fast SSDs. Everything you need to run a performant database is available through the Compose web console or Compose APIs.
