As the OpenStack cloud computing scene evolves, a whole ecosystem of tools is growing along with it. Tesora, the leading contributor to the OpenStack Trove open source project, came recently came out with an update of its OpenStack Trove database as a service (DBaaS) platform that  simplifies management of 11 different database technologies. The Tesora DBaaS Platform Enterprise Edition when it was at version 1.5 built on the list of supported databases, adding CouchDB 1.6 and DB2 Express 10.5 databases, as well as an updated database version of Redis 3.0.

Now, the new Tesora DBaaS Platform Enterprise Edition 1.6 builds on the list of databases currently supported, adding MySQL Enterprise Edition 5.6. There are other additions as well.

Additional capabilities brought to Tesora’s implementation of OpenStack Trove include the following:

– Oracle 12c now implemented as a standard database guest with backup and restore capabilities;

– PostgreSQL backup and restore, configuration group definitions and clustering, as well as new replication functionality;

– Full integration with OpenStack Ceilometer for monitoring and billing, including some 100 notifications to track database backups, replication, resizing, authorized users and more;

– MySQL and PostgreSQL now have the ability to retrieve log files for help with troubleshooting;

– Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 7 added to existing distributions;

– Certified by Mirantis for Mirantis OpenStack 6.1 distribution.

“We continue to add support for more databases and operating systems but equally important we are adding new capabilities to the platform, such as log file management and more support for monitoring,” said Ken Rugg, CEO of Tesora. “These improvements make our implementation of OpenStack Trove the most advanced platform for database as a service.”
