ScaleArc’s iDB 3.0 for MySQL delivers new levels of scalability, performance and availability for MySQL environments with Auto-Failover and query routing capabilities

ScaleArc today announced the launch of a new version of its iDB database traffic management platform. iDB 3.0 for MySQL adds two ground-breaking features –auto failover to maintain uptime in case a master database fails, and transparent query routing & sharding capabilities to enable a new level of scalability and uptime. These new capabilities require no modifications to applications and augment iDB’s existing read/write split, database load balancing, transparent query caching, real-time analytics and disaster recovery features proven to increase availability and performance of mission-critical applications and websites.

“Having implemented ScaleArc iDB at several companies including M-GO, I’ve seen firsthand the unique value that ScaleArc iDB delivers into a MySQL database environment,” said Burzin Engineer, Vice President, Operations at M-GO. “This latest release increases our database scale, performance and availability, allowing us to lower our cost of database operations.”

iDB 3.0 for MySQL is available in both Platinum and Enterprise editions, delivering significant new benefits to the MySQL community:

for the Platinum Edition:

support for auto failover for higher redundancy and availability within MySQL clusters

transparent query routing and sharding capabilities for MySQL clusters

for both editions:

more granular analytics that can pinpoint problems down to specific hosts, queries and users in real time, reducing troubleshooting time and improving capacity planning

comprehensive RESTful API support, enabling complete automation of iDB management and monitoring

“ScaleArc continues to lead the industry in innovation to optimize database environments,” said Varun Singh, Founder & CTO of ScaleArc. “This latest release of the iDB platform for MySQL enhances our customers’ ability to increase performance and availability of their business applications, improving their business results.”
