ClearDB, a pioneer in enterprise cloud database technologies, has been named a Google Cloud Platform Technology Partner – providing a fully managed database service that “improves MySQL database performance, availability and ease of control.” It means that ClearDB’s MySQL Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) is immediately available to MySQL-based application users in Google’s eastern U.S. region. It will be rolled out across all U.S. regions in the coming months.
The collaboration between Google Cloud Platform and ClearDB would enable organizations to benefit from accelerated application development via rapid deployment of database assets, highly available MySQL that avoids application disruptions and a pay-as-you-go model that eliminates the need for organizations to procure and maintain costly infrastructure.
“The combination of ClearDB and Google Cloud Platform can free users from the overhead of managing infrastructure, provisioning servers and configuring networks,” said Jason Stamper, an analyst with 451 Research. “ClearDB on Google Cloud Platform can allow users to focus on business innovation and growth.”
ClearDB is cloud agnostic and offers MySQL Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) to three cloud providers. The company would offer My SQL users a quick and efficient means to rapidly deploy highly available database assets in the cloud. ClearDB’s DBaaS is built on top of native MySQL, no code changes are required, “thus simplifying deployment while ensuring high availability” with sub-second automatic failover capabilities via high-availability routers.
“With database assets playing a vital role in achieving business success in today’s always-on, data-driven economy, the ability to accelerate database-powered application development, ensure ‘always-on’ availability and provide fully-managed database services is essential,” said Allen Holmes, ClearDB vice president of marketing and platform alliances. “ClearDB is committed to expanding its DBaaS offering to all major cloud providers and we are excited to add Google Cloud to our existing lineup of Microsoft Azure and Amazon EC2 offerings.”
