Product review highlights scalability, TDS proxy feature, and ease of deployment.

ScaleArc, the leader in database infrastructure software that optimizes database performance and availability, today announced that its flagship product, ScaleArc iDB, received a perfect score of 5 out of 5 in a recent product review by Michael K. Campbell of SQL Server Pro.

“Simply put, ScaleArc iDB 2.0 is an ingenious product,” Mr. Campbell writes in the review. “It works as advertised.”

The review highlights that by placing ScaleArc iDB software on a server between application servers and back-end SQL databases, caching rules can be set up easily so that commonly executed queries can be pulled from the proxy server's memory instead of the queries having to go all the way to the back-end server. This capability, which also includes caching support for stored procedures and prepared statements, gives an instant boost to SQL Server databases, speeding query responses by 6 to 60 times. This is accomplished in a transparent manner, without requiring changes to applications or SQL Server databases.

The review also highlights ScaleArc iDB’s load balancing functionality for SQL Server, which doesn't require any code changes in the applications; it states that the solution does a great job of easing the pain points involved when adding any new servers; and the review praises the responsiveness of the ScaleArc support staff.

The review concludes with the following recommendation: “For organizations looking to improve scalability and application responsiveness, ScaleArc iDB is definitely worth a look and a potential test drive, because it offers some excellent benefits with minimal effort when compared with other scalability options.”
