 Chapter 1. Overview

Rackspace Cloud Databases is an OpenStack-based MySQL relational database service that allows Rackspace customers to easily provision database instances of varying virtual resource sizes without the need to maintain and/or update MySQL. Interactions with Cloud Databases occur programmatically via the Cloud Databases API as described in this developer guide.
