Cloud Database and Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) Market Projected to Grow

Clustrix provides companies with a reliable cloud database that scales with ease to $14.05 billion by 2019

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif – Aug 13, 2014 – Clustrix, provider of the leading scale-out SQL database engineered for the cloud, offers a quick and reliable solution for cloud failure recovery. With companies increasingly turning to the cloud to improve efficiency, scalability and costs, the cloud database and database as a service (DBaaS) market is expected grow from $1.07 billion in 2014 to $14.05 billion by 2019, according to research from MarketstoMarkets.

As e-commerce businesses are trying to leverage the cloud to scale their revenue, this has the unintended effect of increasingly exposing them to cloud failures. And while business continuity plans generally include a disaster recovery plan, they usually don’t accurately take into account how long a business may be down while the database is brought back online.

“E-Commerce enterprises today are always expected to be ‘on,’“ said Tony Barbagallo, Clustrix Chief Marketing Officer. “They never know the timeframe in which their customers are going to make a transaction, so they can’t risk any downtime after a power failure, or they are at risk of losing customers.”

ClustrixDB, based on NewSQL and ACID-compliant, has redundancy built-into the cluster. ClustrixDB thus maintains multiple copies of all data within a cluster, and dynamically distributes the database across multiple nodes for maximum reliability. These self-healing capabilities re-protect the cluster after failure recovery, prior to replacing any failed components from the initial outage.

ClustrixDB provides a simpler and more robust high-availability approach that speeds recovery after a failure in the cloud—for example, after a natural disaster or a power failure. Legacy MySQL databases instead have a slow recovery time as data is restored to the primary database server, then distributed to the slaves, and then they need to be re-synchronized.

ClustrixDB leverages FastBackup and Restore to parallelize your data recovery, which automatically keeps all your cluster’s nodes synchronized, providing your customers access to your data much faster, and bringing your revenue stream back up and running as fast as possible.
