BELLEVUE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/13/10 -- Xeround (www.xeround.com) today announced that its beta, always-on platform is available on the Amazon cloud. Due to the growing demand for a scalable, elastic and no-fail platform, nearly 300 companies and developers are currently using Xeround's beta program. Now anyone, including users deploying Amazon RDS and/or running MySQL on Amazon, can simply transition to using Xeround's database by changing the connection address, loading the schema and running it.
"Amazon is the leader in cloud computing, and today we're offering our users a choice between having their databases reside in our own data center or Amazon's," said Razi Sharir, CEO of Xeround. "Given its unique ability to run anywhere, Xeround's technology and features make it the best choice for a database within a cloud infrastructure."
Xeround's flagship product, an in-memory database, is a result of several years of development and successful deployments in telecommunications operations environments, resulting in Xeround's guarantee of continuous service during schema changes, resource modifications and the scaling process. Based on a patented technology, Xeround's service utilizes virtual partitions where data partitions are decoupled from physical resources. These virtual partitions hold a (configurable) number of copies of both the data and the indexes in order to ensure high availability and performance.
