CAMBRIDGE, MA: Tesora, contributor to the OpenStack Trove Project, has updated its OpenStack Trove Database as a Service (DBaaS) platform.  It extends support for more databases and OpenStack distributions new database management features, as well as deeper integration with the OpenStack Horizon dashboard.

OpenStack Trove is the DBaaS component of OpenStack, a free and open-source cloud-computing software platform, that allows administrators and developers to manage multiple instances of different database management systems (DBMS) using a common infrastructure.

Tesora DBaaS Platform Enterprise Edition 1.4 includes support for the widely-used Oracle Database 11g, updated databases versions including, Couchbase 3.0, MongoDB 2.6 and 3.0 along with PostgreSQL 9.4. In addition, it includes support for Cassandra backup and restore, user management features, and enhanced integration with the OpenStack Horizon dashboard making it easy to create a new instance and define user management privileges.

“We’re giving organizations what they need to provide a more agile infrastructure that delivers secure database capacity on demand,” says Ken Rugg, CEO, Tesora. As OpenStack Trove provides common infrastructure, this makes the new edition much easier and faster to select and operate databases- while retaining all its capabilities- in a secure private or public cloud.

The updated platform makes OpenStack Trove easy, robust and interoperable by including installers and configuration scripts for leading OpenStack distributors for easier setup, pre-configured and optimized Trove datastore images for supported technologies, which means less time setting up and tuning database performance. Extensive testing and certification with a wide range of popular databases and OpenStack distributions; and 24/7 support with enterprise service level agreements.

Rugg also adds, “This is a significant update to Tesora’s implementation of OpenStack Trove that delivers on the most requested features needed by enterprises.”
