CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Tesora, the company bringing OpenStack Trove Database as a Service (DBaaS) to the enterprise, today announced corporate results and milestones for 2014.
The company name was changed in February to reflect its new mission focused on the OpenStack Trove project. The OpenStack DBaaS project is transforming the way databases are provisioned and managed, to make database capacity that can be consumed on-demand like electricity.
In May, Tesora made available its DBaaS platform, the first fully-supported implementation of OpenStack Trove delivered to the market. At the same time, Tesora announced collaborations with Red Hat, the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, and MongoDB, the leading provider of NoSQL technology, giving OpenStack the power to manage NoSQL databases.
Then, in August, Tesora sponsored the industry’s first OpenStack Trove Day with more than 140 people in attendance hearing case studies, use cases and discussing current capabilities and future plans for the project. At the same time, the company announced the Tesora OpenStack Database Certification Program assuring that different database technologies can be deployed with Trove and leading OpenStack distributions in order to help enterprises reduce implementation time and save money.
In September, the company’s CTO, Amrith Kumar, was named to the Trove core development team in recognition of his commitment and contributions to the project.
That same month, Tesora announced the first enterprise-ready, commercial implementation of OpenStack Trove Database as a Service, which simplifies Trove installation and configuration while adding automated replication for high-availability production workloads.
With the OpenStack Juno release in October, a total of 14 new features were introduced. Tesora became the leading contributor to the Trove project, alongside other contributing companies like HP, eBay, Rackspace, and SUSE. In total, there was a more than 50 percent increase in lines of code in the Juno release (66,175) of OpenStack Trove when compared with the previous Icehouse release (43,215).
Then in November, two hosting providers in the U.S. and Canada became the first to make Tesora Enterprise DBaaS available to the market.
“It has been an impressive year of ‘firsts’ for Tesora,” said Ken Rugg, CEO. “We’re incredibly proud of our work on Trove while at the same time humbled to be working with so many talented people in the industry to deliver database as a service on OpenStack. 2014 was a year of tremendous progress, and we look forward to working with our industry partners in 2015 to continue to evolve the Trove project and gain adoption by enterprises.”
