New ClusterControl release includes customisation language for management and automation

 

Stockholm, Sweden and anywhere else in the world - 27 MAY 2015 - Severalnines, the provider of database infrastructure management software, today launched the latest version of its ClusterControl platform. This database automation product cuts down time for businesses to deploy, monitor, manage and scale multiple open source databases. With this latest release, Severalnines is helping database and system administrators take full control of their database resources.  

Management of databases is increasing in complexity as companies need to meet higher uptime requirements for their data, plus provide security when it is distributed across public/private clouds in a diverse, virtualised infrastructure. Customisation of management tools with simple parameters will not work as database environments become more complex.

ClusterControl now offers users the ability to create their own custom programs, also called advisors, to automate more tasks and increase productivity via an Integrated Developer Studio. Advisors are mini-programs that provide advice on how to address issues in areas such as database performance, security, scalability, configuration and capacity planning. This new programmable platform also builds the foundation for the ClusterControl advisors architecture.

The new ClusterControl and its Developer Studio allow IT professionals to:

●      Test and secure databases with security audits

●      Dynamically tune any database configuration with custom built advisors

●      Use predictive analytics to calculate compute, storage and network capacity at any time

●      Automatically install and setup programs remotely on a host server

 

Here are the new product specification details:

ClusterControl DSL (Domain Specific Language): ClusterControl DSL, allows IT administrators to extend the functionality of the ClusterControl platform by creating advisors. With its syntax based on JavaScript (JS), ClusterControl DSL can execute SQL statements, run shell commands across all cluster hosts and retrieve results for advisors to process.

Integrated Developer Studio: The ClusterControl Developer Studio provides a simple and appealing development environment to quickly create, edit, compile, run, test, debug and schedule your JavaScript programs.

Advisors: Advisors in ClusterControl provide specific advice on how to address database issues such as performance, security, log management and configuration. This advice can range from setting up a simple alert system to a complex prediction engine for cluster-wide automation. For community ClusterControl users, a set of open source advisors are available under an MIT licence on GitHub.

Vinay Joosery, Co-Founder and CEO of Severalnines said: “ClusterControl’s programming environment is like an open system that gives real-time access to the entire database infrastructure, from workload metrics to configuration files, logs and even direct access to the complete Linux BASH environment of the hosts. With the latest release of ClusterControl, we’re allowing IT to control their database environment in ways that was previously difficult to accomplish, or even outright impossible.”

Alexander Yu, Vice President of Products, added: “Our language is effective for flexible automation and programming. IT teams can use mathematical and statistical functions to act on time series data sets, execute remote commands on their cluster hosts and run SQL statements across their servers. Sticking to our community ethos, the advisors we make available are under an open source MIT licence, so users can either improve our work or create their own.”

New Severalnines platform manages the world’s top open source databases

March 14, 2015

ClusterControl real world database management adds PostgreSQL and encryption support

 

Stockholm, Sweden and Anywhere else in the world - XX MARCH 2015 - Severalnines, the provider of database management automation, today announced the next step towards its goal of uniting the world’s fragmented open source database architectures in the enterprise, by launching the latest version of ClusterControl. The new platform allows IT professionals to deploy, monitor, manage and scale the world’s top three open source databases - MySQL, MongoDB and now PostgreSQL with one user-friendly application.

 

Until now, enterprise IT teams required a different management platform for each database type adding to cost and complexity. With support for both SQL and NoSQL databases, including now the PostgreSQL database, the third most popular open source database according to rankings engine DBEngines, ClusterControl allows database administrators to capture and manage more database functions than ever.  By simplifying management of these mission-critical databases on one interface, IT professionals now have time to support other business functions.

 

As businesses have to meet the increasingly sophisticated technological demands from customers and turn to increasingly complex IT infrastructures, many are taking a multi-tier approach and following a heterogeneous database software strategy. As the potential IT nightmares grow, Severalnines has designed key ClusterControl features specifically to ease potential headaches for businesses: 

 

Enhanced DevOps integration: Automating deployments of database clusters can pose difficulties for experienced IT professionals with DevOps tools like Chef and Puppet, often requiring ops teams to spend a significant amount of time on ‘plumbing code’. ClusterControl integration into existing automation tooling allows ops team not to worry about the intricacies of deploying production-ready database clusters.  

 

Enhanced monitoring integration: User demand also called for the release of a new ClusterControl Template for Zabbix, which is a popular open source database monitoring tool. This follows successful ClusterControl integrations with Nagios and PagerDuty, allowing users to gain a view of the status of their database clusters, backups and alert systems.
 

Encryption: According to McAfee, cyber crime costs the global economy $445 billion per year, security is a key issue when it comes to the retention and transfer of sensitive corporate data. The new ClusterControl will encrypt all data in transfer within MySQL and MariaDB-based clusters to alleviate any security concerns.

 

Vinay Joosery, Severalnines CEO, said: “As more enterprises deploy multiple database products depending on the nature of the application, the benefits must be balanced against the practicality of managing this heterogeneous architecture. ClusterControl aims to deliver the full benefits of a diverse open source database strategy in the fastest time possible.”    

 

The new ClusterControl will be presented by Johan Andersson, CTO at Severalnines, during a live demo session on March 24th; users can register here.

Severalnines primed for even stronger customer growth

Severalnines primed for even stronger customer growth 
Europe’s database ‘anti-startup’ sets big objectives to improve open source Enterprise IT 

London, UK, 26 February 2015 - Severalnines, a database clustering pioneer which helps businesses automate and manage highly available open source SQL and NoSQL database clusters, reported over 100 percent sales growth last year. The growth of its revenue and customer base was fuelled by winning enterprise accounts such as BT, Orange and Cisco. Today, Severalnines serves over 100 enterprise customers and is in use in over 7,000 database deployments by community users.    

Severalnines’ flagship ClusterControl platform helps deploy, monitor, manage and scale SQL and NoSQL open source database clusters with cloud providers like AWS and Google, on Openstack, and on-premise deployments. Control of database infrastructure across such mixed environments, which is usually the case in large enterprises, makes Severalnines the ideal platform to support modern business IT.

Severalnines ClusterControl provides full operational visibility for database clusters. It reduces administrative burden by configuring and deploying these clusters within minutes - whether on-premise or in the cloud. Databases currently supported include MySQL with its main variations MariaDB, Percona XtraDB and Galera Cluster, clustered or for single instances, plus MongoDB. 

Bringing their experience working for the European company behind the most popular open source database, MySQL, Severalnines Co-Founders Vinay Joosery and Johan Andersson have created a new type of European software company. To date, Severalnines is self-funded, having taken no external capital. Its commercial success is based on its vision of providing one intuitive way to manage today’s complex, heterogeneous database environments.

Vinay Joosery praised the ongoing growth of the company and said: “In the current age of virtualised environments in public/private clouds, high availability is even more important and is typically achieved via database clustering. However, many companies struggle to implement database clustering, as it requires a great deal of costly expertise which is difficult to find. ClusterControl completely automates the deployment and ongoing management of database clusters; our ultimate aim is to provide telco-grade high availability without the telco price tag."
