GenieDB's DBaaS Delivers High Availability and Fast Response Time for Developers Creating Fully Distributed, Web-Scale Apps

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 11, 2014) - GenieDB, a leading innovator of distributed relational database technology, today announced the immediate availability of the GenieDB Globally Distributed MySQL-as-a-Service, its scalable, highly available database-as-a-service (DBaaS), on AWS Marketplace of Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS), and that it has joined the AWS Partner Network (APN).

With GenieDB Globally Distributed MySQL-as-a-Service on AWS Marketplace, it's now even easier for companies of any size to take advantage of GenieDB's automated platform to build web-scale applications that gain the benefits of geographical database distribution (geo-distribution), continuous availability during regional outages, and better application response time for globally distributed users.

An increasing number of companies are taking advantage of the benefits of cloud services. With GenieDB's Globally Distributed MySQL-as-a-Service distributed across AWS' geographically separated regions, the database is removed as a failure point and availability is maximized.

"AWS has an expansive infrastructure with datacenters around the world," said Cary Breese, CEO, GenieDB. "Coupling this with GenieDB's ability to knit together a geographical distributed MySQL data layer lets companies of any size build reliable applications. Additionally, GenieDB's benefits of geo-distribution means that companies can deliver local application response time to end-users anywhere in the world."

GenieDB is among the first to deliver a cloud-based solution for geo-distributed relational databases, eliminating the need to build expensive and complex distributed databases. Designed as a MySQL storage engine plug-in for easy distribution across regions, GenieDB gives applications uninterrupted availability while also delivering local performance to users anywhere.

"The GenieDB service has helped our SaaS product stand out from the crowd," said Rob Giffin, CTO, Avalution Consulting. "True multi-master database replication, synchronization across regions, auto-healing functionality, and the simplicity of the service make it more powerful than any other offering available. It's a silver bullet for multi-region availability."

"We are excited to have GenieDB MySQL-as-a-Service added to AWS Marketplace," said Barry Russell, Head of Business Development, AWS Marketplace. "We are happy we can continue to offer our customers more choice and capabilities in the cloud via AWS Marketplace."
