Built-in failover and redundancy are essential in today's scale-out data centers that run Web 2.0 applications and demand unparalleled availability and scalability.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) May 1, 2008
Continuent, Inc., the leading provider of commercial open source middleware solutions for database high availability, today announced Continuent™ uni/cluster 2008. This newest version of Continuent's uni/cluster software provides the highest levels of availability and scalability for database applications built using PostgreSQL and EnterpriseDB™ Postgres Plus databases.
Continuent uni/cluster offers a multi-master approach to 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.
New features in Continuent uni/cluster 2008 include:
- Simplified installation and configuration,
- Faster performance by supporting for more than two cluster controllers,
- Better management tools with new platform-independent Adobe® AIR™-based GUI, and
- SUN Solaris™ support and Red Hat® 5 certification.
"I'm very glad to see Continuent uni/cluster now available on Solaris," said Josh Berkus, the leader of Sun Microsystems' PostgreSQL team. "High availability is often the highest priority of our PostgreSQL for Solaris customers, and the new uni/cluster gives them another powerful tool for 99.999% uptime."
"We are pleased to have Continuent in our new Blade Partner Program," said Bob Zurek, CTO of EnterpriseDB. "Built-in failover and redundancy are essential in today's scale-out data centers that run Web 2.0 applications and demand unparalleled availability and scalability."
"With Continuent uni/cluster 2008, organizations have insurance against outgrowing the capacity of their system," said Eero Teerikorpi, CEO of Continuent. "They can add new database servers on the fly and take advantage of uni/cluster's load balancing, where database activity is directed to the least busy server. This can be vital to maintaining continuous data availability for maximum productivity and meet customer expectations."
