Continuent uni/cluster offers a multi-master approach to database replication. Data is committed and available to all nodes in the cluster simultaneously, effectively eliminating data latency and providing increased reliability through redundancy. Continuent uni/cluster includes a build-in load balancer, which allows any database server to be used to process user queries, providing near-linear scalability, and optimal resource utilization, throughput and response time.

GlassFish is one of the leading open source application server communities in the industry today with more than seven million downloads since its first release in May 2005.

"With millions of developers downloading GlassFish, the GlassFish Partner Initiative not only helps Continuent to showcase our database scale-out offerings to this important open source community but also gives us access to new business models, expanded markets, and increased opportunities for sales engagements," said Eero Teerikorpi, CEO at Continuent.

"The new GlassFish Partner Initiative gives developers unprecedented access to the expanding GlassFish ecosystem of more than 100 SIs and ISVs," said Kenneth Drachnik, group manager of software infrastructure marketing at Sun. "With Continuent joining the initiative, the GlassFish developer and user community gets easy access to their important database high availability solutions."
