Tesora Launches Today to Simplify the Delivery of a Database-as-a-Service Platform on OpenStack

Company Changes Name From ParElastic to Tesora, Representing New Strategic Direction With the OpenStack Trove Project

CAMBRIDGE, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/10/14 -- Tesora launches today as the first company dedicated to supporting the Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) platform on OpenStack. Tesora, meaning treasure in Italian, has joined the OpenStack community to collaborate and contribute its deep database expertise to the OpenStack DBaaS project, Trove.

With OpenStack Trove, database administrators can quickly provision and scale database capacity in the cloud and manage multiple database management systems (DBMS) such as MySQL, MongoDB and others from a single, unified management tool. Trove is in production use today at HP, Rackspace and PayPal. Tesora is dedicated to making Trove easy enough for any organization to deploy as its DBaaS platform.

"We set out to transform how databases are provisioned and managed in the age of cloud computing, believing that database architecture should be flexible, scalable and cost-effective," said Ken Rugg, Founder and CEO of Tesora. "The company name change is a reflection of the expansion of our corporate vision beyond scalability to delivering a complete and open platform for DBaaS on OpenStack."

The DBaaS market is growing rapidly with an astounding 86 percent cumulative annual growth rate and annual revenues from DBaaS providers projected to rise from $150 million in 2012 to $1.8 billion by 2016, according to 451 Research. The Tesora team is well positioned to take advantage of this market opportunity. The company's scale-out database virtualization product is currently in production with several customers and can be used either with the company's DBaaS platform or with other cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) including Amazon's Cloud Relational Database Service (RDS).

"Instead of taking weeks or months to provision a single database server, users can provision scalable databases in minutes," said Jit Saxena, database pioneer, founder of Netezza and Tesora board member. "Tesora's database pedigree and experience in delivering scalable database capacity, coupled with the strength of the OpenStack community, provides the peace-of-mind that the industry's most knowledgeable people are behind the scenes and available for support."

"I'm pleased to have Tesora joining OpenStack and Trove. Having a group of dedicated datastore professionals who know MySQL is a boon for the community. I'm anticipating amazing collaboration and top notch ideas to come from the folks at Tesora," said Michael Basnight, the OpenStack Trove Technical Project Lead. Tesora has committed a dedicated team to develop OpenStack Trove, with an initial focus on clustering.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated.

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
