Orchestrate has announced the availability of the AWS EU Ireland data center to application developers, allowing them to host application data closer to end users in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, in addition to North America through the AWS US East public cloud, and on dedicated clusters on any cloud for Enterprise customers. 

With the addition of a multi-tenant Orchestrate cluster running on AWS EU Ireland, application developers are able to take advantage of the highest performance and lowest latencies possible, wherever their applications live. EMEA is the second largest region for Orchestrate and growing, with nearly a third of its users based in Europe, and many of its customers in North America and Asia serving end users in the EMEA region. 

“We’re constantly looking to expand the Orchestrate service to meet the needs of our users, and the addition of a European data center is testament to our rapid growth across EMEA,” said Ian Plosker, CTO of Orchestrate, who heads the Orchestrate London office. “Developers and end users in Europe will now see significantly better performance for applications hosted in the EU data center.” 

The addition of AWS EU Ireland does not affect pricing for current or future customers, who can elect to host their application data in the US or Europe easily through the Orchestrate dashboard. Current users hosting application data on AWS East can also migrate to the European data center by filing a support ticket with Orchestrate’s service team. 

Orchestrate delivers a portfolio of critical features from leading NoSQL databases like  Elasticsearch and HBase, as well as RDBMS MySQL through a single API that meets the needs of most application developers. Based on extensive user data, Orchestrate increases the developer’s time to production tenfold, with savings in cost, time and operational support anywhere from 50-90% as compared to running NoSQL databases in production themselves.
