SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 23, 2013) - GenieDB, a provider of a leading Database-as-a-Service solution for MySQL, today announced that its recently-launched GenieDB Globally Distributed MySQL-as-a-Service technology has been featured by Database Trends and Applications in its inaugural list of trend-setting data management and analysis products. The list, "DBTA Trend-Setting Products in Data for 2014," salutes the products setting the stage for what has been called the "data revolution." The products are highlighted in the special December edition of Database Trends and Applications magazine and on the website, and were selected for their uniqueness and importance to the market.

GenieDB's Globally Distributed MySQL-as-a-Service technology allows organizations to build large scale, multi-region, multi-master, high performance applications with the benefits of geographical database distribution, continuous availability during regional outages, and better application response time for globally distributed users.

"GenieDB is honored to be listed as one of DBTA's trend-setting technologies," said Cary Breese, CEO, GenieDB. "The requirements of interactive online applications are dramatically increasing, with users demanding ever-higher levels of availability while datacenter and cloud infrastructures become increasingly complex and failure prone. With GenieDB's MySQL-as-a-Service, companies can create and manage MySQL databases quickly, efficiently and reliably with ease-of-use, high performance and flexibility, and it is great to receive additional validation from DBTA and other thought leaders." 

GenieDB also received the following honors in November at AWS re:Invent 2013:

"Certainly, the past several years have seen an explosion in interest in 'big data.' With that rapid growth, a variety of products have emerged, both from established companies and new startups. It has become very difficult to sift through all of the hype and identify products that actually produce in real-world data environments. We created this list to do the heavy lifting for you and point out the products that are really transforming enterprise information management," remarked Thomas Hogan, Group Publisher of Database Trends and Applications.

The "Trend-Setting Products in Data" list will be compiled annually by the editorial staff at Database Trends and Applications. This year's selections can be viewed here.
