What is Managed Databases for Grafana?

Can I install Grafana on Public Cloud instances myself?

Once you have downloaded and accepted the Grafana licence agreement, it is indeed possible. However, you will also need to manage and administer the solution, and you will not benefit from the capabilities we provide in our turn-key service.

Can this solution be integrated into a Public Cloud project?

Yes, our service can be used as a resource, or as part of a Public Cloud infrastructure. You can manage it from the OVHcloud Control Panel or the OVHcloud API.
