I am looking forward to sharing the latest update on the replication projects we are working on.

High Availability Open Source sees high demand in 2015

LONDON 4TH NOVEMBER 2014 – Codership, whose Galera Cluster technology brings high availability to open source databases worldwide, today announced its presence at the Percona Live 2014 show in London, where it will deliver a keynote and exhibit the latest in SQL clustering technology for forward-looking IT organizations. The appearance tops the company’s most successful year ever.

In 2014, Galera has seen solid growth in downloads, commercial customer numbers and revenues. Codership’s fast-growing momentum in the database world came from a doubling of Galera downloads, which puts it on track to a quarter of a million downloads in 2015. In addition, Galera has been adopted by several large vendors as a default High Availability (HA) solution in their reference architectures and is highly adopted in OpenStack implementations.

Paying customers also doubled in 2014 and now include Mercadolibre, ‘South America’s eBay’, online retailer Greetz and online gaming platform, Spil Games. A corresponding rise in user support calls has seen the team hire quality assurance talent from rivals. The new development team members will ensure Galera, which optimises performance for the world’s most popular open source databases, MariaDB, MySQL and Percona can continue to deliver on its mission to protect enterprise applications from unplanned downtime.

Earlier this year, Galera won the coveted ‘Application of the Year’ 2014 award at the Percona Live event in Santa Clara. In London, Alexey Yurchenko, Codership’s founder will deliver the keynote on ‘Synchronous Revelation’, where Yurchenko will share his views on the evolution of replication towards synchronous from asynchronous, best practices in each and will pose the question “Is this truly replication?”.

Sharing his views ahead of Percona Live, Yurchenko said: “I’m very proud of what the Codership team has achieved this year. As we hurtle headlong into another high-growth year for high availability, I am looking forward to sharing the latest update on the replication projects we are working on. Presenting alongside Oracle, Facebook, Percona and MariaDB is a great opportunity to reconnect with the community and tops off a defining year for us.”
