SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TransLattice, the geographically distributed database company for enterprise, cloud and hybrid environments, today announced the release of version 3.0 of the TransLattice Elastic Database (TED). TED is the world's first geographically distributed Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) that enables deployment on multiple public cloud provider networks at the same time, as well as on virtual machines (VMs), physical hardware or any combination thereof.


As enterprises move to the Cloud, many are looking to mitigate the risks surrounding outages, data location compliance and vendor lock-in. TED 3.0 is the first and only RDBMS to span multiple public cloud networks, while retaining the ability to control data location via policy, and acting as one cohesive database to the end user.

The genesis of the TransLattice solution was the desire to offer geographically distributed relational data on all-active nodes that provide exceptional system availability, excellent response time for remote users, effortless scalability, and data location compliance.  Now, with the release of TED 3.0, enterprises can run a single database across multiple cloud providers simultaneously. Organizations can minimize the risk of moving databases to the cloud by taking advantage of more than one cloud provider, knowing that they can add or change providers at a later date.

TransLattice Elastic Database 3.0 News Facts:

  • Spans multiple public clouds simultaneously, as well as multiple availability zones within a cloud provider.
  • Creates a highly available, fault-tolerant database fabric comprised of all-active nodes and capable of being administered from anywhere on the network by distributing data across geographic locations.
  • Scales capacity easily when and where needed, by adding nodes on demand with no downtime. Nodes can be virtual machines, private or public cloud instances, physical hardware or any combination thereof.
  • Positions mission-critical data closer to the edge of the network for improved response time for customers, partners and employees.   
  • Controls data location through simple-to-configure policies, thereby reducing the need for federation of data and streamlining compliance management.
  • Costs far less than traditional SQL databases and includes geographic distribution capabilities others don't have. Unlike typical failover models, TransLattice enables higher utilization of hardware assets due to nodes being all-active, which contributes to excellent economics.
  • Code baseline upgraded to PostgreSQL version 9.2.
  • Increased support for monitoring frameworks with SNMP.

Michael Lyle, CTO and co-founder, TransLattice said: "As cloud technologies become more prevalent, enterprises are looking for a product that is easy to scale and delivers high availability of data to remote users with superior performance. The TransLattice Elastic Database has delivered these key elements and more. Now, with TED 3.0, a database can cross multiple public clouds and on-premises infrastructure, providing organizations with more flexibility as they make use of the cloud."

Evan Quinn, Senior Principal Analyst for Enterprise Strategy Group said: "Multi-national organizations face the challenges of running truly distributed and scalable databases for their global applications. The TransLattice Elastic Database not only addresses those challenges, it now also spans multiple public clouds for the same logical database, helping organizations more optimally deploy cloud applications, and shielding those organizations from individual cloud service provider outages."
