GenieDB Database-as-a-Service Provides Highly Available, Cost-Effective Geo-Distribution for Cloudbook

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/03/14 -- GenieDB, a provider of a leading Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) solution for MySQL, today announced that Cloudbook, a developer of innovative storytelling software initially targeted for enterprise sales teams, has minimized latency to its international user base and maintained high-availability cost-effectively by deploying GenieDB's globally distributed MySQL-as-a-Service (DBaaS). The GenieDB solution has allowed Cloudbook, which uses a LAMP stack with a MySQL database, to avoid switching to a NoSQL solution, thereby saving important resources for existing MySQL investments.

"GenieDB's MySQL-as-a-Service simplifies the process of distributing and replicating our data across multiple time zones," said Vince Vasquez, CEO, Cloudbook. "We are now able to provide the same level of performance to our customers anywhere in the world." "Cloudbook's innovative storytelling software needs to be available 24x7, with fast access in multiple geographies," said Cary Breese, CEO, GenieDB. "The GenieDB MySQL-as-a-Service allows Cloudbook to be highly available even during server or datacenter outages so that Cloudbook can focus its development resources on product enhancements and delivering a great user experience." With GenieDB, Cloudbook realizes several benefits: The ability to leverage existing knowledge and investment in MySQL without code changes. The ability to span multiple nodes and multiple cloud providers, eliminating risks and cloud provider lock-in. No single point of failure, even during data center or cloud provider outages. Independently operating nodes that each sync automatically after failure. Seamless Master-Master replication of data to globally distributed nodes, eliminating the challenges of Master-Slave or Circular replication.

GenieDB Globally Distributed MySQL-as-a-Service technology allows organizations to build large scale, multi-region, multi-master, high performance applications with the benefits of geographical database distribution, continuous availability during regional outages, and better application response time for globally distributed users.
