Clustrix and GoGrid Partner to Combine the Elasticity of the Cloud with the Power of a Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS)

Best-of-breed companies share a commitment to performance, reliability, flexibility, and transparency

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Oct 16, 2012 - Clustrix, the scale-out SQL database for Big Data applications, and GoGrid, a leading cloud infrastructure company, today announced a partnership to make it easier for customers worldwide to use Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) solutions.

“GoGrid has a similar transparent approach to its pricing and services as well as a distributed, high-performance cloud,” said Robin Purohit, CEO of Clustrix. “The timing of this partnership is perfect as we recently introduced a Flash-storage-based (SSD), fault-tolerant and self-healing distributed architecture to extend Clustrix’s scalability, performance, and availability to the cloud. Then we added on-demand database administration (DBA) coupled with a simplified pricing structure. Now, customers will have the best of both worlds: the elasticity of the GoGrid cloud plus the power of the Clustrix DBaaS.”

“It’s rewarding to partner with a company like Clustrix that shares so many of our core values, including giving buyers and users of our offerings the benefit of predictability, superior performance, and reliability,” said John Keagy, CEO and founder of GoGrid. “By providing the scalability and flexibility of a cloud-based business model, we help our partners better service the needs of customers.”

About the Clustrix and GoGrid Partnership

The partnership provides customers with a new flexible and integrated platform for the deployment and delivery of transactional web-scale applications and Big Data solutions providing unprecedented performance, scale, and fault tolerance — all within the GoGrid cloud.

Multiplicative benefits derive from combining collocated Clustrix scale-out database appliances with GoGrid’s industry-leading cloud architecture. This partnership allows cloud applications to obtain secure, seamless, low-latency access to private dedicated MySQL-compliant Clustrix database clusters of massive scale and automated fault tolerance and self-healing capabilities.

Together, the GoGrid and Clustrix combination delivers the highest end-to-end performance, scalability, and availability, which results in a superior quality of service from front-end web servers, to applications, to back-end databases/models.

This new DBaaS offering is available immediately on a monthly subscription basis with Clustrix’s DBA-on-Demand support and its included database backup service. For more information on the Clustrix DBaaS, visit: http://www.clustrix.com.
