SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 12, 2014) - GenieDB, a provider of a leading database-as-a-service solution for MySQL, today announced that it will be demonstrating its MySQL Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, March 17-21. With GenieDB, game developers can eliminate latency to international user bases and ensure cost-effective high-availability.

"With GenieDB, we're removing the burden of back-end database management for the gaming community," said Cary Breese, CEO, GenieDB "We offer a unique solution that, within minutes, has a game or app up and running across multiple regions and data centers ensuring high availability and incredibly fast performance that scales to user demand."

With GenieDB, game developers benefit in several ways:

  • Geo-distributed databases for fast local performance.
  • Retain existing knowledge and investment in MySQL without code changes.
  • Span multiple nodes and multiple cloud providers, eliminating risks and cloud provider lock-in.
  • No single point of failure, even during data center or cloud provider outages.
