ScaleArc Joins Rackspace Marketplace to Bring Database Traffic Management to the Cloud

ScaleArc today announced that its database traffic management software is now available on the Marketplace for Rackspace® Hosting, (NYSE: RAX), the open cloud company. Rackspace hybrid cloud customers can now choose either ScaleArc for SQL Server or ScaleArc for MySQL to increase the availability, performance, and scalability of business-critical applications without modifying either the applications or databases.

ScaleArc’s patented software deploys transparently in a cloud or hybrid cloud infrastructure between the application and the database tier, optimizing SQL query flows. The software provides high-availability features, including zero-downtime patching and maintenance, as well as traffic management and offload capabilities that enable up to 24x scalability of database transactions. The ScaleArc software also provides real-time analytics available for Rackspace customers.

“The Marketplace serves as a gateway to an ecosystem of some of the best-in-class software applications that help solve customers’ business needs and improves their overall cloud experience,” said John Engates, chief technology officer, Rackspace. “With the addition of ScaleArc to the marketplace, Rackspace customers can choose a reliable solution for their database optimization needs.”

With ScaleArc’s software, enterprises gain access to the advanced reliability and performance enhancements of traditional scale up and scale out techniques but without any of the cost and delay of modifying applications. The software:

  • enables continuous application availability for both planned and unplanned outages, including failover between data centers
  • provides traffic management with load balancing, read/write split, query routing, sharding, and integration with SQL Server AlwaysOn
  • offloads the database with surge protection, connection multiplexing, and query-response caching
  • gives instant visibility and actionable insights with real-time SQL analytics
  • provides a fully RESTful API for integrating ScaleArc provisioning and operation into existing scripts and management tools

“Database performance issues can cause application slowdowns and failures, often resulting in a loss of revenue and productivity,” said Justin Barney, president and CEO of ScaleArc. “ScaleArc creates an abstraction layer between the database and applications, shielding applications from the database structure entirely. As a result, we automatically redirect traffic flows as needed to ensure load distribution and availability. The availability of ScaleArc for Rackspace customers allows organizations using ScaleArc to enjoy the cost and agility benefits of the cloud.”
