OpenStack Database Certification Program Announced by Tesora

Ensures Compatibility of OpenStack Distributions and Database Management Systems on Trove

CAMBRIDGE, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/19/14 -- Enterprises and cloud operators that are looking to build database as a service (DBaaS) on OpenStack Trove can ensure that their choice of databases will work on their choice of OpenStack distributions with the announcement today of the Tesora OpenStack Database Certification Program.

Trove is the open source DBaaS component of the OpenStack cloud platform. Tesora, the OpenStack Trove company focused on the success of Trove in the enterprise, is creating the certification program to provide assurance that the most widely used databases can be deployed with Trove into the most popular OpenStack environments via the Tesora DBaaS Platform. The Certification Program eliminates the headache of enterprises having to test integration on their own while reducing implementation time and saving money.

Initially, certification and support includes the following databases: MongoDB, MySQL Community Edition, Percona Server, MariaDB, Redis and Cassandra, with work on Oracle, SQL Server and PostgreSQL underway. In addition to database certification, the program also ensures that the Trove-based Tesora DBaaS Platform installs, configures and operates properly with popular OpenStack distributions. At the outset, Tesora is certifying OpenStack releases from Red Hat, Canonical and from the OpenStack Foundation.

"Tesora's DBaaS platform and certification program provides MongoDB customers with the assurance of a compatible integration," said Vijay Vijayasankar, vice president of global channels and business development at MongoDB. "The knowledge that our database will work as intended, on the OpenStack distribution of their choice, is important when building out a DBaaS strategy."

Tesora ensures that the database installs, configures and operates properly with the OpenStack cloud platform and tests continually for compatibility as OpenStack distributions from certified vendors, Trove and database releases are made available on an ongoing basis. In addition, Tesora provides enterprises with the level of professional support and maintenance they require on the Tesora DBaaS Platform and the integrations with certified databases and OpenStack releases.

"With the rapid adoption of OpenStack and establishment of Trove as the database as a service (DBaaS) component of OpenStack, enterprises want to know their chosen database will work as expected with the cloud platform," said Ken Rugg, CEO and founder of Tesora. "We're looking to accelerate the development of a broad ecosystem around OpenStack and database technologies."

The announcement was made at OpenStack Trove Day in Boston.

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.

Serveless Architectures brings the ability to independently scale, deploy and heal based on workloads and move away from monolithic designs. From the front-end, middle-ware and back-end layers, serverless workloads potentially have a larger security risk surface due to the many moving pieces. This talk will focus on key areas to consider for securing end to end, from dev to prod. We will discuss patterns for end to end TLS, session management, scaling to absorb attacks and mitigation techniques.
