Enterprise open source growth and new release sets Severalnines up for 10 out of 10 year

January 18, 2017

Everywhere in the world, 18 January 2017 - Severalnines, Europe’s leading provider of open source database management software, opens the year with the launch of a new release of ClusterControl, its award-winning, all-inclusive database management system. ClusterControl lets businesses easily deploy, manage, monitor and scale their open source databases to run their business on the technology stack of their choice.

The rapid adoption of open source and cloud services by enterprises last year saw a plethora of new customers deploying ClusterControl, which drove 110 percent growth in sign-ups compared to 2015. Along with the 32,000 downloads and 12,000 registered users, Severalnines announced several blue-chip customers. These included BT, European Broadcasting Union, VidaXL and Stream AMG deploying ClusterControl to simplify the operation of their high availability open source databases.

The latest ClusterControl features enable businesses to automate multiple environments for next-generation applications, including:

“Always on” Databases

  • Standard MySQL replication is still the most widely used method of replicating data between database hosts, yet Galera and Group Clustering is proven to be more reliable. With the addition of MySQL replication, ClusterControl now covers a wide range of application use cases that require high availability.

Safer NoSQL

  • Added support for MongoDB, larger sharded cluster deployment means ClusterControl provides a more holistic way of managing MongoDB in polyglot environments, to help enterprises circumvent vendor lock-in for users.

Enabling the DBA

  • Extension of Load Balancing technology via ProxySQL, HAProxy and MaxScale. This gives professionals complete control over how applications are accessing their databases. It also enables query caching, negating the need to gather information straight from the database.

On top of breaking sales and download records, Severalnines has doubled its team to further the growth of ClusterControl in 2017 across the world.

Vinay Joosery, CEO, Severalnines said, “Many IT deployments in today’s enterprise exist in mixed environments. This puts enterprise IT teams under pressure, as multiple specialist competence is required to implement high availability for their different open source databases. And we want all types of industries, like government, telco and financial services, who rely heavily on databases, to understand we have them covered.

He added, “As IT infrastructures become more complex, our goal is for devs and ops to work together to improve productivity. Virtualization, containers, multi datacenter, public clouds, hybrid setups and so forth are all becoming part of businesses’ realities, and implementing distributed open source databases in these new environments is a challenging task. ClusterControl increases efficiency and provides simplicity via a single interface to deploy and manage your open source databases. There will be no more searching for and cobbling together a combination of tools, utilities and scripts which all need constant updates and maintenance.”
