Enterprise-Ready OpenStack Database as a Service Announced by Tesora

First Fully-Supported DBaaS Platform on OpenStack Trove Now Available

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 16, 2014) - The first enterprise-ready, commercial implementation of OpenStack Trove database as a service (DBaaS) is now available from Tesora, the leading contributor to the OpenStack Trove open source project.

Bringing databases to the cloud with OpenStack Trove creates enormous benefits along with new challenges for enterprises. Databases are different from other information technology (IT) infrastructure in that they require specialized management skills and deep knowledge of the unique features and functions for each application. Since databases can be resource intensive, many don't work well in cloud environments, especially where high-availability and reliability are critical.

Tesora DBaaS Platform Enterprise Edition meets these challenges by simplifying installation and configuration of Trove, adding automated replication for high-availability production workloads, along with new management features that expose more capabilities of the underlying databases.

"With the Tesora Community Edition we made Trove easier for users and now with our Enterprise Edition we're making it more robust. We believe that this will pave the way for broader adoption of database as a service using OpenStack Trove by making it simpler to get up and running with new enterprise features and a higher level of support," said Amrith Kumar, CTO and founder of Tesora, as well as the most recent addition to the Trove Core Team. "We're removing another roadblock to the usage of OpenStack Trove."

Organizations deploying the Tesora DBaaS Platform Enterprise Edition can be confident in the performance and reliability of their database as a service project. Highlights of Tesora's Enterprise Edition include:

  • Installers and configuration scripts for leading OpenStack distributions for easier setup
  • Pre-configured and optimized Trove datastore images for supported technologies means less time setting up and tuning database performance
  • Options for both full and incremental database backup, plus replication for production applications
  • Extensive testing and certification with a wide range of popular databases
  • 24/7 support with enterprise service level agreements, along with frequent maintenance release and bug fixes that resolve problems quickly, plus detailed documentation by a team that really understand databases, OpenStack and Trove

The Tesora DBaaS Platform Enterprise Edition makes Trove easy, robust and interoperable. More information on Tesora Enterprise Edition is available here.

Tesora DBaaS Community Edition is also available as an open source download.
