OpenStack DBaaS: Press Release

Tesora Announces TroveSpeed Program | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Includes OpenStack Trove database as a service software, plus technical assistance to get up and running rapidly

Tesora Announces TroveSpeed Program To Accelerate OpenStack Trove Implementations

Tesora wants to make it possible to be up and running on database as a service (DBaaS) with OpenStack Trove as quickly as possible and announces its TroveSpeed Program that includes the Tesora DBaaS Platform along with all the technical resources necessary to roll out multi-database, database as a service within hours.

Over a 4-week period, Tesora provides a trial version of its flagship DBaaS Enterprise Edition, online training, installation and ongoing technical support, and at the conclusion, a results presentation for the project team.

"The emergence of public cloud platforms means that many organizations today are familiar with the time-to-market and agility benefits that come from using self-service databases," said Ken Rugg, CEO of Tesora. "Not many, however, have implemented database as a service solutions internally.  We created our TroveSpeed program to help enterprises see the full benefits of DBaaS through OpenStack Trove while reducing the time and effort associated with installing and configuring it."

TroveSpeed lets OpenStack users quickly explore Trove DBaaS features and understand the benefits it can bring the enterprise, including:

- Self-service database provisioning and life-cycle management.

- Popular databases including Cassandra, MariaDB, MongoDB, MySQL, Oracle, Percona, and PostgreSQL, managed through a single, consistent pane.

- Access to deploy in private, public and hosted private clouds.

- Enterprise-quality customer support from Tesora, the number one contributor in the Trove project.

This program is available to qualified enterprises free of charge until September 30, 2015.

Tesora will demonstrate its Database as a Service Platform at OpenStack Summit in Vancouver, booth #T45, from May 18-21.
