Managed Databases Operations - MySQL
Incident Report for DigitalOcean Backup 10 May 2023
As of 23:13 UTC, our Engineering team has put tooling in place to detect clusters running the impacted version of MySQL. Affected clusters will be mitigated when that detection tooling is triggered, so backups can still be created.

We will continue rolling out the permanent fix but have identified this issue impacts a very small number of Managed Databases and users are no longer at risk of loss of data integrity.

If you have any questions or concerns, please open a ticket with our Support team (being sure to use our backup form if you experience any issues with our Support Portal as per
