This agreement will allow SkySQL to resell Severalnines’ ClusterControl™ product, the newest solution in the SkySQL™ Reference Architecture.
“This partnership is beneficial to both our company and our customers,” said Vinay Joosery, CEO at Severalnines. “The addition of MySQL database expertise from SkySQL adds a tremendous amount of value to the ClusterControl™ solution.
