In a statement, the company said the API-driven database would save admins time on day-to-day tasks. All code developed to create the service has been released under an open-source licence.
It is claimed to have a user-friendly Web dashboard and simple API calls that make customisation, backing up and restoring easy.
Catalyst Cloud chief growth officer Igor Portugal said: “With Catalyst Cloud’s fully automated database infrastructure, developers can be free to focus on delivering what really matters for their business.
Thom Toogood, a senior systems engineer and management member at global cloud Web hosting service provider amazee.io, which hosts the Australian Government's GovCMS, said: "We're excited about the possibilities Catalyst Cloud’s new Managed Database Service will offer our customers.
"Services like these are core components of a modern hosting technology stack. This offering is a great alternative to other providers' solutions, especially since it's based in New Zealand."
Catalyst Cloud has three data centre regions in New Zealand which are claimed to reduce risk and increase business resiliency.
“We’re extremely proud to be part of the global open source cloud computing movement,” said Portugal.
“We strongly believe that open standards and open competition are beneficial for everyone. Customers should stay with cloud computing providers because they are happy with their services, not because they are locked in.”
