Continuent, Inc., the leading provider of commercial open source middleware solutions for database high-availability and scalability, today announced the formation of its advisory board to support its growth and evolution.
The members of the advisory board bring together business and open source community leadership, and include:
“More and more data is being generated and captured all around us, and the need to store, process and analyze this data increases daily. Database scaling technologies are critical to business as the industry moves forward, and I'm happy to advise Continuent as they position themselves to help users meet this demand,” said Barry Klawans.
"By taking this step, Continuent shows that it recognizes that the modern software business is a conversation between peers, instead of merely messages and products delivered to an audience," said Zak Greant. “I'm looking forward to advising them this coming year."
“Finnish companies continue to prove themselves both in their technology leadership and with their open source software strategies,” said Mikko Puhakka. “I'm proud to act as a Continuent advisor as they grow and prosper.”
“Few companies excite me with the combination of their technology development and business opportunity, as well as their open source strategies,” said Stephen Walli. “Continuent is one of those few and I'm absolutely thrilled to be an advisor.”
“In 2007, key customers like Capgemini (France), CNET Networks, PrimeNewswire (a NASDAQ® company) and Thomson Scientific all chose Continuent to meet their database high-availability needs,” said Eero Teerikorpi, Continuent CEO. “We feel quite fortunate to have secured such a well rounded board of advisors who together provide an important sounding board as we grow our business and our community this year.”
