With the first transparent SQL-NoSQL hybrid caching engine, ScaleArc iDB gives developers the power to determine cache rules specific to the needs of their applications, dramatically improving query performance.
Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
ScaleArc, the leader in database infrastructure software that optimizes relational database scalability, performance and availability, today announced that it has received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on a patent application related to its ScaleArc iDB patent portfolio. This newly allowed patent application protects innovations related to ScaleArc iDB’s method and system for transparent database query caching.
ScaleArc’s query caching technology represents the industry’s first SQL-NoSQL hybrid cache, which lets any application use a NoSQL, or key-value, cache without requiring drivers or modifications to application code. ScaleArc’s caching technology employs a query-level agentless approach, and provides granular control to support user-defined application cache rules. Rather than employing generic caching rules, application developers can easily adapt ScaleArc iDB’s cache to their application-specific needs.
“The caching technology in ScaleArc iDB represents a breakthrough for the industry,” said Varun Singh, founder and chief executive officer of ScaleArc. “With the first transparent SQL-NoSQL hybrid caching engine, ScaleArc iDB gives developers the power to determine cache rules specific to the needs of their applications, dramatically improving query performance.”
With ScaleArc iDB’s caching technology, database CPU and IO load is reduced significantly, even in the case of SQL clustering and mirroring. This frees critical system resources, which accelerates reads and writes, and extends the life of database servers.
This Notice of Allowance comes just weeks after ScaleArc received a separate Notice of Allowance from the USPTO for its database acceleration technologies, including ScaleArc iDB’s connection pooling technology, its method for handling read/write splits, and its query routing and queuing technologies.
The Notice of Allowance from the USPTO is a notification that ScaleArc is entitled to a patent under the law. This patent represents the second of several that ScaleArc is pursuing.
