Clustrix is delivering the world’s leading scale-out SQL database perfectly suited for high-transaction workloads that can run on premise and in the cloud.

Clustrix provides the leading scale-out relational database engineered for the cloud or data center. ClustrixDB is a drop-in MySQL replacement and an ideal solution for high-transaction, high-value OLTP applications typically found in businesses such as ad tech, e-commerce, gaming, and large web and mobile businesses.

When your application built on MySQL starts to hold your business back from getting to the next level due to the challenges of effectively scaling MySQL, that is when the Clustrix team steps in. We love MySQL and MySQL applications, but at a certain point you have to start considering sharding in order to scale out reads and writes, and that means redeveloping your application and revisiting your data architecture. We don't want you to have to do that — it's expensive, time consuming, and becomes a never-ending process. So we developed ClustrixDB so you can drop it in and start scaling horizontally with linear performance out of the gate. ClustrixDB a distributed database that we call a "scale-out database."  Our goal is to get your scalable application to market faster, with fewer headaches, and a lower TCO than any of the alternatives. Check us out.
