Earlier this year, we made the strong claim that PlanetScaleDB is the only true “multi-coud” DBaaS offering on the market. To our knowledge, this claim is still true; in this video, we’ll show you how you can set up your own multi-cloud deployment in less than 15 minutes.

At a high level, “true multi-cloud” refers to being able to bring up a single database that replicates across multiple cloud providers. This definition is outlined in detail in the blog post here and expanded upon in our behind-the-scenes post here


Now that we understand the benefits and engineering challenges that contextualize this technology, the following video displays a step-by-step walkthrough of bringing this environment up in PlanetScaleDB. To follow along with the video, click on this link to get started with setting up your own multi-cloud database on PlanetScaleDB.
