ScaleBase SQL Software Gets a Sequel
February 12th, 2013 By: John Rath
Database scalability software provider ScaleBase announced version 2.0 of its Data Traffic Manager software. The database scalability software solves three big challenges that next-gen applications face when it comes to increased adoption: scalability, availability and centralized management.
Version 2.0 of the Data Traffic Manager software is a major upgrade, and gives application providers with a robust way to virtualize their databases. Through providing scale out through advanced read/write splitting or data distribution in a single solution, ScaleBase says its is able to scale to an infinite number of users and increase performance without requiring any changes to an existing MySQL infrastructure.
“The enhancements in the new version are in direct response to what our customers and prospects are asking for: support for multiple apps, a more intuitive interface and easier deployment,” said Doron Levari, CTO and founder of ScaleBase. “We’re committed to giving app developers and DBAs everything they need to stay focused on app innovation, without having to worry about changing their infrastructure to scale out their apps.”
ScaleBase allows for central management and the ability to analyze complex, distributed database environments. Data Traffic Manager 2.0 supports replicated databases across geographical boundaries, with location-independent load balancing and failover.
Scalebase is used by companies with some of the fastest growing databases – including Mozilla. It detects database outages and transparently fails over to backup instances, ensuring application availability. In a breakout year last year the company doubled in size, moved to new corporate headquarters, and raised $10.5 million in venture funding.
