Web Hosting NewsSan Francisco, Calif. – GoGrid, a leading cloud infrastructure company, today announced a technology partnership with GenieDB, a company developing a globally distributed database for enterprise applications, to let companies beta-test the GenieDB Global Delivery Database solution within a multi-data-center cloud infrastructure environment.

The GenieDB solution addresses enterprise demand for compelling performance, redundancy, and resiliency worldwide, driving the expansion of database requirements to include multi-data-center geographic diversity within the cloud. Many businesses are bound by the limitations of non-scalable, location-constrained relational (SQL) databases and are unable to pursue the radical reconstruction and investment required to adopt scalable, non-relational (NoSQL) database solutions.

“Given the advances of Big Data, cloud computing, and mobile, pressure is rapidly mounting as enterprises strive to meet the demands of an increasingly global user base, but struggle with the pain associated with scaling infrastructure,” said Cary Breese, CEO of GenieDB. “Teaming GoGrid’s multi-data-center cloud service with GenieDB’s Global Delivery Database establishes a distributed, available, local experience delivery platform. That platform provides the critical foundation for next-generation applications, and does so within a readily accessible framework that’s easy to implement and maintain.”

Combining the best of NoSQL and SQL capabilities, GenieDB provides a globally distributed database solution that runs within MySQL, the world’s most popular open source database, allowing enterprises to easily scale existing applications globally without incurring the pain and cost of replacing their current database architecture. GenieDB was designed from the beginning for replication and distribution across a wide area network (WAN). This architecture is a perfect fit for cloud environments and particularly for GoGrid customers looking to deploy data-driven applications across GoGrid’s multi-data-center cloud.

“GoGrid’s high-performance cloud servers are perfect for database implementations across the globe,” said John Keagy, CEO and founder of GoGrid. “And when you add GenieDB’s distributed model into the equation, you have a multi-data-center, replicated, scalable data architecture solution available from and across any of our locations worldwide.”

GenieDB is currently accepting applications from businesses interested in participating in the “GenieDB for MySQL” trial. To facilitate this process, GoGrid is offering a $100 service credit to new GoGrid customers interested in participating in this private beta trial.

By dramatically simplifying the migration of enterprises into cloud-based infrastructures, GenieDB brings global scalability to the mainstream. Existing database technologies by themselves–SQL, NoSQL or otherwise–do not overcome the challenges faced by enterprises as they struggle to scale their mission-critical applications worldwide. GenieDB’s innovative and patent-pending hybrid approach automates and optimizes how data is processed across global networks and Clouds, providing readily accessible, local database performance on a global scale. GenieDB is the earliest stage company to present at Under The Radar and Oracle OpenWorld 2010, and was nominated and recognized as a “Start-up to Watch” at Structure 2011.
