SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Emic Networks today announced
Emic Application Cluster (EAC). EAC adds a new dimension to MySQL(TM)
reliability and scalability. EAC is a new application-clustering product that
is tuned for MySQL, the world's most popular open source database.
EAC removes the problems that normally occur when combining availability,
data consistency, scalability and performance. By forming virtual database
entities, which can be either local or distributed, EAC eliminates the need
for a shared storage device and provides failover protection while preserving
all transaction ACID requirements. EAC uses clustering technology with a
unique group communication replication technology, which provides the
consistency of synchronous replication at the speed of asynchronous
replication, with no decrease of overall performance.
"EAC combines multiple physical SQL databases, working as one logical,
highly available database. It takes full advantage of available resources and
balances the workload between clustered databases. EAC delivers almost linear
scalability as nodes are added to the cluster," said Kari Honkanen, CTO at
Emic Networks. "With EAC, lower-cost Intel-based systems can match the
performance and reliability of RISC systems."
"Large enterprises are increasingly turning to MySQL for running their
mission-critical applications. We are pleased to see leaders like
Emic Networks add application-clustering technology to the total offering,"
said Marten Mickos, CEO at MySQL.
Emic Application Cluster is available today, starting at $4,995 per
server. A free evaluation version is available for downloading at
