Tesora Teams with Red Hat on OpenStack-based Database as a Service

by Ostatic Staff - Sep. 06, 2016

As the OpenStack cloud computing arena has spread out, a whole ecosystem of tools has been growing along with it. Tesora, familiar to many as the leading contributor to the OpenStack Trove open source project, has focused very heavily on Database-as-a-Service tools for OpenStack deployments. It has also pursued partnerships. For example, Tesora has a partnership with OpenStack heavy-hitter Mirantis. The company has made available the first ever plug-in to automate configuration and deployment of its database as a service (DBaaS) platform with Mirantis OpenStack.

Now, Tesora has announced a collaboration with Red Hat to offer certified, scalable and open database as a service (DBaaS) features with robust security functionality for Red Hat OpenStack Platform. With support for popular SQL and NoSQL databases, Tesora reports that "popular databases can now be managed through a single, unified platform while still leveraging the best native capabilities of each database."

Surveys of OpenStack users and community members, conducted by the OpenStack Foundation, have regularly reported that the Trove database as a service is among the top five projects favored by users.
Since Tesora DBaaS is based on OpenStack Trove, it integrates with other core OpenStack services. Tesora is the leading contributor to the Trove project, alongside Red Hat and others.

Through the combination of Red Hat OpenStack Platform and Tesora Database as a Service Platform, enterprises may be able to improve operational efficiency, and potentially lower their total cost of ownership for building and managing databases.

“Red Hat is a leader in the OpenStack ecosystem and this certified solution will bring the power of self-service databases to Red Hat OpenStack Platform clouds,” said Ken Rugg, CEO of Tesora. “Tesora’s implementation of OpenStack Trove is an advanced platform for database as a service, offering Red Hat users capabilities for managing backup and restores, increasing security with user permissions and automated patch management while enabling compliance with corporate standards, as well as regulations for privacy, security, and data sovereignty.”

Organizations using Red Hat OpenStack Platform and Tesora may also be able to reduce their time to market for new applications by empowering developers with self-service database provisioning and management. You can find out more here.
