Next-Generation Application Companies Select ScaleBase to Maximize Database Scalability & Eliminate Downtime
Innovative Database Company Backs Web 2.0 Industry with Advanced Database Technologies
BOSTON — August 21, 2012 —Data center outages – which typically last 90 minutes or more – can cost companies more than $500,000 per incident. That’s in addition to a tarnished brand, and backlash from customers and prospects who expect 24/7 availability – especially from companies offering next-generation apps.
“Next-gen app companies need comprehensive, SQL-aware solutions that deliver scalability and availability,” said Sheeri Cabral, database administrator/architect at Mozilla and a widely respected MySQL database visionary. “ScaleBase has a unique ability to distribute data to multiple datacenters across distributed geographies – all while centralizing the management of it – addressing a significant concern for Web companies that need top performance at all times.”
With thousands of new online and mobile applications launching daily, ScaleBase is empowering online gaming companies, digital media providers, social networks and enterprises to think big – without having to worry about database failures, back-ups or infrastructure costs.
“Companies can’t install a new database every time their business grows, volume increases, or online applications outgrow existing infrastructure,” said Doron Levari, founder and CEO of ScaleBase. “The ability to dynamically adapt to spikes in activity, without interruptions in service or hundred-thousand dollar hardware investments is critical – especially with the massive transactional processing requirements of big data.”
ScaleBase eliminates application and database infrastructure complexity by enabling a fast and efficient response to dynamic business requirements. The company’s Data Traffic Manager provides an abstraction layer that delivers real-time scalability and availability – without requiring changes to existing infrastructure.
“There is no question that a need exists for database solutions specifically designed to accommodate the increased level of complexity associated with next-gen app companies,” said Paul Burns, Neovise analyst. “ScaleBase’s ability to simplify these environments while seamlessly scaling them gives users a leg-up on the competition.”
The ScaleBase Data Traffic Manager dynamically manages and scales databases to meet changing business demands. ScaleBase provides an abstraction layer with a unified point of management for a distributed database environment; removing complexity, delivering real-time elasticity and increasing availability – all without requiring any changes to the existing infrastructure. ScaleBase is an authorized Amazon and Oracle Partner and its customers span a wide range of industries including online gaming companies, digital media providers, social networks and enterprises. The company is venture-backed and based in Newton, MA.
