Stephen_Spector

 

At the recent OpenStack Silcon Valley event I had a chance to meet the team from Tesora and learn about their new Database as Service offering. I recorded a Podcast last week with one of their founders and current CEO, Ken Rugg providing more informaiton on the company and their solutions.

Tesora

Tesora was founded with the vision of radically simplifying how databases are provisioned and managed. By creating an open database as a service platform based on OpenStack Troave, the company is now making this a reality.

 

With Tesora, OpenStack administrators can go beyond compute and storage to offer their users a self-service, managed database service for MySQL and other leading databases. Tesora is adding enterprise-class scalability, security, availability, performance, and disaster-recovery capabilities that will let you deliver database as a service in the cloud or in your datacenter.
