Geographically Distributed RDBMS fosters reliability, compliance.

Press Release Summary:

By distributing data to organization's geographic locations, TransLattice Elastic Database (TED) creates highly available, fault-tolerant data fabric comprised of multiple nodes. Single database can run on multiple TransLattice nodes wherever needed, promoting availability, performance for remote users, and scalability. This geographically distributed Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) also helps companies comply with data jurisdiction requirements through policy.

Original Press Release:

TransLattice Elastic Database Provides World's First Geographically Distributed RDBMS

High-Performance, Distributed SQL Database for Business-Critical Applications Improves Reliability While Reducing Costs

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- TransLattice, the distributed database and application platform company for enterprise, cloud and hybrid environments, today announced the release of the TransLattice Elastic Database (TED), the world's first geographically distributed Relational Database Management System (RDBMS).

A power outage or catastrophic event can wipe out an organization's IT operations in an instant. Backup data centers can give organizations a false sense of security, as failover doesn't always work and recovery often takes far longer than anticipated. Geographical distribution of data - including relational data - is the future of computing for enterprises and the cloud, offering vast improvements in system availability, improved performance for remote users, effortless scalability and data location compliance. By geographically distributing data, the system continues to work even if some nodes are down, thus greatly reducing the risk of a costly outage.

By distributing data to an organization's geographic locations, the TransLattice Elastic Database creates a highly available, fault-tolerant data fabric comprised of multiple nodes. With TED, a single database can run on multiple TransLattice nodes wherever it is needed, resulting in exceptional availability, excellent performance for remote users and easy scalability at far less cost than traditional databases. Further, TED enables companies to comply easily with data jurisdiction requirements through policy.

TED News Facts:

-- Offers high availability, easy scalability, lower computing costs and superior performance for remote users.
-- Creates a highly available, fault-tolerant database fabric comprised of multiple nodes and capable of being administered from anywhere on the network - with zero downtime - by distributing data across geographic locations.
-- Positions mission-critical data closer to the edge of the network for improved response time for customers, partners and employees.
-- Scales capacity easily when and where needed, by adding nodes on demand with no downtime. Nodes can be virtual machines, cloud instances, TransLattice appliances or any combination thereof.
-- Controls data location through simple-to-configure policies, thereby reducing the need for data federation and streamlining systems management.
-- Costs far less than other distributed SQL databases and includes geographic distribution capabilities others don't have. Unlike traditional failover models, enables higher utilization of hardware assets due to all nodes being active, which contributes to excellent economics.

Frank Huerta, CEO and founder, TransLattice said: "Global organizations can't afford downtime, period. We have designed the TransLattice Elastic Database to provide reliable, high-performance and low-cost distributed computing to global enterprises. With TED, organizations can provide fast, cost-effective data availability to users anywhere in the world, doing away with the need to federate data, while still complying with data location regulations."

John L. Myers, senior analyst for business intelligence, Enterprise Management Associates said: "Geographically distributed and scalable databases are important to the agility of modern organizations. Geographically isolated and incrementally expanded databases limit the development of business-critical applications by placing constraints on developers and administrators. Instead of focusing on the business problem at hand, companies instead focus on managing the limitations of a platform. Also, as Internet based applications continue to gain prominence, poor end-user response time and customer experience can make the difference between success and failure, as can an economic investment in traditional database infrastructure that does not scale appropriately."
