Latest Tesora Database Virtualization Engine Helps Customers Reach Unmatched Speed Scale

Simple Install Results in an 80-Fold Capacity Increase for Mobile Application Customer and Dramatic Reduction in Latency

CAMBRIDGE, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/17/14 -- Tesora, provider of an open and scalable database as a service (DBaaS) platform on OpenStack, today announced the latest release of the Tesora Database Virtualization Engine and established a new customer performance benchmark, posting an 80-fold increase in capacity while providing a dramatic reduction in latency.

The new release of the Tesora Database Virtualization Engine, version 1.5, delivers adaptive multi-tenancy, elastic scale out and a Web-based intuitive UI with new features that add support for SQL views, a cost-based planner and official support for MariaDB. It can be used with OpenStack, Amazon Web services and other cloud platforms, as well as on premise.

"More and more business is done on the web and our customers find themselves trying to balance the growing demands of complex query processing, high concurrency and instantaneous response times," said Amrith Kumar, CTO of Tesora. "At Tesora, we're committed to bringing the benefits of scale out DBaaS simplicity without forcing any customer code changes and making it easy to add database capacity as demand grows."

Application developers today must contend with demands from tens of thousands of impatient users who concurrently request access to customized online content. Such demands put extreme stress on a company's database. Tesora customers such as New York-based mobile development company Majestyk Apps are already leveraging the Tesora Database Virtualization Engine to get their databases to scale and respond quickly.

Majestyk was hired to develop a consumer-facing social application that increases a user's engagement by adding a custom rating system to their photos. The histogram service shows the popularity of user photographs, with tens of thousands of concurrent users and millions of photographs. A sophisticated algorithm decides what pictures to show to whom. The histogram has to be rendered on demand and reflect the most recent comments and ratings by other users. The complex schema and queries make sharding infeasible. In addition, the demand for near instant access to newly uploaded photographs means that simply caching results is insufficient.

Without having to rewrite a single line of code in their application, Majestyk saw dramatic results after implementing Tesora's Database Virtualization Engine. The application saw an 80-fold increase in capacity, a sharp reduction in latency, and a 60 percent cut in server computing costs.

"When it comes to scaling, Tesora is our first option," said Majestyk CEO Donald Coolidge. "Tesora offers an elegant solution that streamlines our development process, improves the experience for end users and saves money in the process."
