SAN JOSE, California – July 25, 2011 – SkySQL, Inc., the first choice in affordable MySQL® database solutions for the enterprise and cloud, today announced apartnership with Yoshinori Matsunobu, an Oracle ACE Director and the creator of the newly announced Master High Availability Manager for MySQL (MHA for MySQL) for automating MySQL master failover. With this partnership, SkySQL will be the first MySQL database commercial services company to provide technical support, professional services, and training, for MHA for MySQL.
“For the average organization, the difficulties of master failover are some of the biggest challenges of deploying a MySQL database,” said Yoshinori Matsunobu, creator of the MHA for MySQL. “It’s a critical issue for any organization deploying a MySQL database, so the decision to choose a provider of professional services for the tool was not taken lightly. We believe that SkySQL, with its depth and breadth of MySQL database expertise, is in the best position to live up to expectations in supporting MHA for MySQL. We are excited to work alongside the many MySQL veterans at SkySQL, who have been entrenched in the open source industry for many years.”
Announced at the O’Reilly OSCON conference during Yoshinori Matsunobu’s “MySQL for the Large Scale Social Games” presentation, the MHA for MySQL solution offers users a faster, more affordable, robust, and stable alternative for high availability MySQL database solutions.
The primary objective of MHA for MySQL is automating master failover and slave promotion within short downtime, without incurring replication consistency problems or compromising performance. The tool helps enterprises avoid spending money on new servers, and is easily implemented, without changing existing deployments.
“MHA for MySQL will undoubtedly be welcomed with open arms by many enterprises,” said Kaj Arnö, executive vice president of products at SkySQL. “It’s an attractive solution for them because of its simplicity to use and potential for accelerating their MySQL high availability deployments without compromising performance or incurring unnecessary costs. We are honored to be selected by Yoshinori Matsunobu to provide our customers with enterprise class support and professional services for this new tool. The addition of the MHA for MySQL to the SkySQL™ Reference Architecture offers our customers even more choice and flexibility when it comes to high availability solutions for their data center.”
