INetU, the customer-centric cloud company, today announced the expansion of its cloud database service with the addition of the Aerospike high-performance in-memory NoSQL database for mission-critical, highly scalable applications. Companies that need to architect a new environment or bring additional performance and reliability to an existing database tier can now turn to the INetU team of database experts who provide unmatched hands-on support for managing Aerospike, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and MySQL.
"End users continue to demand speed, performance and scalability from their infrastructure and this is very evident when it comes to database applications," said Philbert Shih, managing director of Structure Research. “This requirement comes with increased complexity and makes the value proposition of a managed hosting provider - able to host, manage and optimize the application and its supporting infrastructure - increasingly compelling."
With the increase of cloud based applications storing big data, high performance and reliability of the infrastructure has increased in importance. For companies with ample internal IT resources, self-service database solutions may suffice. However, many companies want the management and 24x7 support that comes with a managed cloud database service, and that’s where INetU excels for customers.
“When we chose INetU, they provided a team of experienced technical staff to help us architect a hosted solution that scaled well to meet our business needs,” said Pal Grewal, CTO, HomewiseDocs. “By using the INetU cloud database service, we are able to really focus on our business and operations. The customer-centric support is excellent and it really gives us peace of mind having INetU provide the database support and managed cloud infrastructure.”
Since 1997, INetU has designed and maintained database environments utilizing clustering, mirroring, replication, transaction log shipping, Oracle RAC and SQL Server AlwaysOn availability groups. The company’s database administrators can do more than just design new environments — they also help customers by performing advanced query optimization tailored to the specific application, often resulting in significant performance improvements.
“Anyone can spin up a database in the cloud nowadays, but if you want it to perform effectively in concert with the infrastructure, applications and security, then it’s vital to have the expertise to configure and manage the solution around the customer’s specific business needs,” said David Fowler, VP of Marketing at INetU. “Designing the right environments and running databases like Aerospike in the INetU cloud combines the best-of-breed technologies with the hands-on services that give customers the confidence they need to run their business in the cloud.”
The INetU cloud database service includes flexible options to design, configure and manage the right database solution for customers’ unique environments. The company’s database experts help ensure high performance, reliability and uptime, security, support and scalability that ensure customer environments always perform at their best.
