Our Company

Providing the full 'deploy, manage, monitor, scale' database life cycle - on premise or in the cloud

Control your Database Infrastructure

Severalnines provides automation and management software for database clusters. We help companies deploy their databases in any environment, and manage all operational aspects to achieve Severalnines availability.

Severalnines' goal is to provide the full 'deploy, manage, monitor, scale' cycle to developers, thus freeing them from the complexity and learning curves that are typically associated with highly available database clusters.

Our Company

The Severalnines team members, mostly ex-MySQL AB staff, have dedicated over a decade of their careers helping telcos and high traffic web properties deploy high availability database clusters. Today there are a number of companies claiming to have invented the perfect database clustering solution that can address all types of database requirements. At Severalnines, we have not seen one solution that fits all database problems. But deploying multiple disparate clustering technologies can become a nightmare, with downloaded or home grown scripts combined to create a patchwork solution for monitoring and managing the database infrastructure.

Severalnines is the only one out there giving users a choice of clustering solution, with tools to deploy and manage their databases from a single and consolidated interface. Severalnines tools are easy to use, and have already enabled over 7000 deployments.
