ScaleBase Features and Benefits
ScaleBase is a modern relational database cluster built on MySQL, designed for scalability and optimized for the cloud. ScaleBase dynamically balances workloads and ensures high availability by distributing data across public, private and geo-distributed clouds.
Scalability via elastic scale out: continuously increase total database size and throughput to follow application workload requirements.
Availability: protect users against downtime and delays; ensure users and applications remain connected to their documents, data files, and business systems.
Geo-distribution: distribute the database such that sub-sets of the database are closer to where the data is needed.
Hybrid private/public cloud: distribute the database such that sub-sets of the database can be split across multiple sites, private and public cloud infrastructure.
Multi-tenancy: distribute tenants/ customers across nodes/clusters
The chart below shows a high-level overview of ScaleBase’s features and benefits
|Automated, policy based data partitioning||More concurrent users, more TPS, and larger databases|
