Continuent uni/cluster Connector makes database clustering deployments simpler and faster -- customers can focus on deploying the cluster and just switch client connections when they are ready to move.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) September 5, 2007
Continuent, Inc., the leading provider of commercial open source middleware solutions for database high-availability and scalability, today announced the Continuent uni/clsuter Connector.
Continuent uni/cluster is a suite of middleware software that delivers high-availability and scalability clustering for virtually any mission critical database application.
Continuent uni/cluster Connector is a key part of the Continuent vision of transparent database clustering using off-the-shelf databases and commodity hardware. The Connector allows applications that use MySQL's or PostgreSQL's native database APIs to connect directly to Continuent uni/cluster (uni/cluster for MySQL Enterprise, uni/cluster for PostgreSQL and uni/cluster for EnterpriseDB respectively) without changing libraries or making code alterations.
"Continuent uni/cluster Connector makes database clustering deployments simpler and faster -- customers can focus on deploying the cluster and just switch client connections when they are ready to move." says CTO Robert Hodges anc continues "Another great feature of the Connector is that standard database clients such as 'mysql' and 'psql' can work directly with the cluster. So users preserve not only current client applications but also can continue to use familiar administrative tools as well. Finally, the uni/cluster Connector is fast and consumes few system resources. It minimizes resource impact of deploying Continuent uni/cluster in new environments."
This version of uni/cluster Connector supports all API calls except for use of prepared statements. Continuent is working on these now and expect to provide support in the next release.
Continuent uni/cluster Connector is available in September 2007 and it is free for all Continuent uni/cluster customers. The pricing for Continuent uni/cluster starts at $3,600.
