Tesora Announces Enhancements to Enterprise-Hardened OpenStack Database as a Service

Tesora announces an update of its database as a service (DBaaS) platform that adds expanded replication capabilities in MySQL including failover, making it the first OpenStack Trove-based product to support high availability.

In addition, Tesora has extended database support to include MariaDB 5.5 and 10.0 along with PostgreSQL 9.3. Also, the recently announced support for Oracle 12c is generally available.

"We're delivering on the highest priority requirements with failover for MySQL and the addition of MariaDB and PostgreSQL to the seven other database products that we already support in our OpenStack Trove implementation," said Ken Rugg, CEO of Tesora. "Just last month, we announced support for Oracle giving enterprises lots of database options to deploy in their private cloud."

Another feature added in Tesora Enterprise Edition 1.3 is dashboard support for configuration groups, which gives administrators greater flexibility and helps increase their productivity.

This enterprise-hardened implementation of the OpenStack Trove DBaaS is based on the most current OpenStack code base.

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 and OpenStack distributions
  • 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 OpenStack Trove easy, robust and interoperable.

More information on Tesora Enterprise Edition is available here.
