We are pleased to announce that is now available as a Netlify integration. Netlify users can now accelerate database read query performance and lower global latency for single, or multi-region data-driven applications, in just a few clicks. is a serverless, plug-and-play database cache. It dramatically accelerates database read performance, lowers network latency and reduces database infrastructure costs. PolyScale is plug-and-play requiring no code to implement, and zero configuration or tuning. It can be implemented in minutes with a simple configuration change. PolyScale offers a global edge network SaaS platform as well as a self hosted option.

Integrate in Minutes

With the PolyScale integration, Netlify users can now add an intelligent, globally distributed database cache in minutes, without leaving the context of their Netlify Site.

Once enabled, the cache connection credentials are saved as Netlify environment variables for simple code access within Netlify; for example, from a Netlify Edge Function.

You can see a walkthrough of the Netlify integration with PolyScale in the video below.

Any Database Provider

PolyScale executes SQL queries and stores cached data closer to the application. This offers additional agility in that Netlify applications can now utilize any database hosting providers that may not be geographically close to a Netlify region. Netlify users that have cacheable data, now have unlimited choice for database hosting. This also enables users to migrate their application tier to Netlify, without the overhead of a database migration.

Additionally, PolyScale supports several database types (including Postgres, MySQL, MariaDb and MS SQL Server); all of which can now be utilized within Netlify for cacheable workloads.

Getting Started

To get started with on Netlify, simply select PolyScale from the Integrations -> Database menu from within any Netlify site. For detailed instructions on connecting your PolyScale account to your Netlify account and adding a cache, refer to the Netlify documentation page.
