Colt Data Centre Services, an international carrier-neutral data center, and colocation services provider, has selected ClearDB’s MySQL Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) solution to power its multi-cloud, always-on customer portal and management application.
ClearDB’s global architecture is designed from the ground up for high availability and low latency to MySQL-powered applications with scheduled backups in multiple regions and time zones to ensure data availability and an international footprint.
ClearDB’s “highly available” DBaaS architecture would deliver a resilient, geographically redundant database infrastructure ensuring “continuous, unfailing” portal access to Colt Data Centre customers.
“Database uptime and resiliency are paramount for us, so we needed an extremely stable, resilient and well-managed database service. With double-digit growth rates, we required a service that could handle database usage spikes without affecting our data center power, CPUs or storage,” said Romain Tranchant, IT Transformation Director, Colt Data Centre Services. “With ClearDB’s DBaaS solution, we are able to support our customers with an always-on managed database that won’t fail when demand rises and that provides continuous portal access.”
24 Data Centers
With ClearDB’s ability to replicate data between geo-redundant locations, a customer’s database would not only be resilient within local clusters but across geographies. If one location’s infrastructure fails, the other location can continue to process the database with no interruption.
“Value and dependability are key points for me,” added Mr. Tranchant. “With ClearDB, we have never had to put any of our resources into database troubleshooting and support. We can focus on our customer service and never have to wonder why our database isn’t working or why our customers can’t access their equipment. That is the most valuable thing to us.”
Colt Data Centre Services has been designing, building and operating large-scale data centers and providing data center colocation services for more than 15 years. Over 1,000 customers worldwide have selected the company to secure their information in Colt’s 24 carrier-neutral data centers across Europe and Asia.
“We are pleased to support Colt Data Centre Services colocation services and clients,” said Allen Holmes, vice president of marketing and platform alliance for ClearDB. “Our single-tenant dedicated database solution provides customers with a faster, stronger, safer and more reliable way to get data to applications no matter where the applications are in the world.”
