Continuent Joins Red Hat Exchange
Program Focuses On Helping The Open Source Ecosystem Grow Sustainable Businesses By Implementing A Community-Leveraged Model
San Jose, CA – July 2, 2008 – Continuent, Inc., a leading provider of commercial open source middleware solutions for database high availability, today announced it has been selected to join Red Hat® Exchange (RHX). The program is focused on creating a rising tide for the broader open source ecosystem, and is focused on leveraging community-driven development and frictionless distribution to extend the ecosystem.
Continuent uni/cluster offers a multi-master approach to database replication. Data is committed and available to all nodes in the cluster simultaneously, effectively eliminating data latency and providing increased reliability through redundancy. Continuent uni/cluster includes a build-in load balancer, which allows any database server to be used to process user queries, providing near-linear scalability, and optimal resource utilization, throughput and response time.
“As we continually place more dependence on data in the enterprise, Red Hat Exchange (RHX) represents an important step in removing barriers to open source adoption,” said Eero Teerikorpi, CEO at Continuent. “More and more data is being generated and captured all around us, and the need to store, process and analyze this data increases daily. More and more businesses live in a demanding 24/7 environment and potentially serve thousands or in some cases even millions of users. Database availability and scaling technologies are critical to business as the industry moves forward. RHX not only helps Continuent to showcase our database scale-out offerings to open source community but also gives us access to new business models, expanded markets, and increased opportunities for sales engagements.”
“We are thrilled to team with Continuent as we work to expand open source enterprise computing,” said Matt Mattox, Director of ISV Alliances at Red Hat. “With RHX, we are focused on providing choice to our customers and look forward to continuing our relationship with leading vendors like Continuent.”
