GenieDB, Inc., a leading innovator of distributed relational database technology, today announced availability of its "Worldwide Database" in the Rackspace Cloud Tools Marketplace. GenieDB works alongside standard MySQL to provide a cloud-enabled platform, distributed across multiple geographies and clouds. It delivers high availability and local performance levels to users anywhere in the world, eliminating the need to build expensive and complex distributed databases. With GenieDB's global distribution capabilities and MySQL plug-in architecture, companies can easily ensure that their MySQL applications will stay up, even if any cloud goes down.

"Some enterprises interested in cloud deployments are initially concerned about performance and availability. GenieDB is designed as a MySQL storage engine plug-in for easy distribution across regions, taking enterprise applications beyond a simple failover configuration to applications with 100% uninterrupted availability while delivering local performance to users anywhere," said Waqas Makhdum, Rackspace Cloud Tools Marketplace manager. "Until now, that performance was still a 'holy grail' for MySQL implementations -- but no more. GenieDB's technology lowers the barrier to cloud adoption for enterprises everywhere. We're glad to have GenieDB as part of our Cloud Tools Marketplace."

GenieDB offers an immediate migration path that addresses growing demand for peak application performance and zero tolerance for downtime while avoiding the expense and disruption of non-MySQL solutions. It enables many organizations to accelerate development and deployment of their next generation cloud-enabled applications while dramatically reducing total cost of ownership.

"Rackspace's commitment to cloud innovation, along with the distribution of their datacenters around the world, aligns perfectly with our goals of highly available, fully distributed cloud applications," said Cary Breese, CEO, GenieDB. "We are delighted to be part of the Cloud Tools Marketplace and look forward to working with Rackspace to accelerate development and deployment of next generation cloud-enabled applications."
