San Jose, CA (PRWEB) December 7, 2006
Continuent, Inc., the leading provider of commercial open source middleware solutions for database high availability, today announced general availability of an updated version of its Continuent™ uni/cluster software. This new uni/cluster version includes among other things a new management and configuration tool. Continuent uni/cluster for PostgreSQL also now supports new PostgreSQL 8.2.
Continuent uni/cluster is the core component for a suite of Continuent software solutions that deliver high-availability and scalability clustering for virtually any database application.

The elimination of data latency also allows Continuent uni/cluster to offer more effective scalability through load balancing because any database server can be used to process user queries.
