The fastest growing open source enterprise database platform – it’s the default database in the Red Hat and SUSE Linux distributions - MariaDB’s Enterprise Cluster with MaxScale is now available on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. The scalable solution is based on MariaDB Enterprise and Galera Cluster, is integrated with MariaDB’s MaxScale and the company claims it will integrate with current on-premise solutions and can be deployed on Microsoft Azure in just minutes.
The new offering comprises a three-node MariaDB Enterprise Cluster based on Galera clustering technology and MaxScale to enable scalability and is pre-configured for deployment to the Azure platform, with an interface that allows users to deploy clustered configurations quickly and easily.
For those looking to produce hybrid solutions MariaDB Enterprise Cluster on Azure also integrates with existing IT environments via Azure’s secure private connections and data residency and encryption features. MariaDB MaxScale, included in the bundle, provides additional capabilities for improving security, scalability and maintenance.
“Each deployment model has its strengths, and we predict that most enterprises will implement hybrid solutions that mix on-premises with public and private cloud deployments,” said Jason Stamper, analyst, Data Platforms & Analytics, 451 Research. “MariaDB has clearly recognized a gap in high-performance database solutions in the cloud, and has delivered the product and the rapid deployment capability to make building hybrid environments easier for customers.”
“The demand for an enterprise-grade public cloud deployment of MariaDB has been growing within our user base," said Nishant Vyas, CTO of MariaDB. “To meet that demand we’re delivering the leading performance, security, and availability of MariaDB, with all the flexibility of the cloud.”
