* SQL Layer natively supports multi-machine scalability and fault-tolerance by storing all persistent data in the FoundationDB Key Value Store.
* SQL Layer can power many of the world's web sites with little modification via compatibility with many popular Object Relational Mappers (ORMs) including ActiveRecord (Ruby/Rails), Django (Python), Hibernate (Java), SQLALchemy (Python), Doctrine (PHP) and EntityFramework (.NET).
* SQL Layer and open-source ecommerce platform, Spree Commerce, are now available together via a pre-configured, one button deployment via GoGrid.
