ClearDB has announced that it has partnered with Datavail, the largest provider of remote database administration (DBA) services in North America, to provide 24/7 expanded database services to ClearDB’s more than 200,000 clients around the world. The partnership enables ClearDB to combine its database as a service (DBaaS) and cloud capabilities with Datavail’s remote monitoring, customer support and database administration (DBA) services to provide an end-to-end solution for small, medium, and large enterprise customers and channel partners.
As data growth accelerates, the demand for talented DBAs is rising sharply while the availability of DBAs is shrinking. As a result, the demand for database as a service (DBaaS) and remote database administration services has seen a spike in recent years. The joint ClearDB and Datavail offerings deliver highly available, highly efficient database services — all combined in a single, extremely affordable solution.
As part of the partnership, Datavail will provide a comprehensive set of database administration services providing customers simple access to a fully managed cloud database. Deployed today with major cloud suppliers, ClearDB integrates geo-distributed and database virtualization technologies with global orchestration, provisioning, billing, telemetry and support into a centralized on-demand licensing and delivery model that simplifies the management of database assets.
“ClearDB’s vision is to deliver a nonstop, secure, integrated data services platform that leverages our proven cloud technologies and the experiences that we’ve gained providing services to more than 200,000 users. Our partnership with Datavail allows us to take our offering one step further,” said Allen Holmes, ClearDB vice president of marketing and platform alliances. “With Datavail’s 24/7 support and extensive DBA services, ClearDB is able to provide a robust end-to-end solution and offer increased platform benefits to a wide variety of applications and database types including Oracle, Mongo, SQL Server and other databases in a single solution.”
Designed to work on major public clouds and to support private cloud and on-premises operations, ClearDB’s nonstop data services platform automates the provisioning and management process with an intuitive services framework that accelerates performance and guarantees high availability in any cloud marketplace, including Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Heroku, AppFog, SoftLayer and IBM Bluemix. In addition, ClearDB delivers nonstop access and availability with multi-regional read/write mirroring and offers advanced security features to keep data secure in the cloud.
“Datavail is pleased to work with ClearDB to offer customers the robustness of a highly available, 24x7 managed database from the convenience of the cloud,” said Scott Frock, chief operating officer at Datavail. “With our end-to-end offering, customers can focus on their applications, confident their data is protected and always available to the business.”
