Stratoscale Acquires Tesora and Launches New Cloud Service

By Frank Griffin

Enterprises, telecoms and even SMBs are now deploying large cloud services to leverage the flexibility, scalability and agility the technology provides. Without the costly capital expenditures of on-premises systems, organizations are shifting that spend to the cloud, with better results in terms of return on investment. Stratoscale, a company that specializes in giving  anyone the ability to deploy an AWS compatible region in any data center, has just launched a new cloud service in addition to acquiring Tesora, a company that provides cloud-based IT models with open database as a service (DBaaS) from any public, private or hybrid cloud computing platform.

The acquisition of Tesora will give Stratoscale the number one contributor to the Trove project and supporter of OpenStack with an open DBaaS. From a single console using DBaaS, Tesora can provision and manage both SQL and NoSQL databases in a highly scalable, open and secure platform capable of supporting the demand of today's users. This includes the provisioning and management of seventeen certified databases such as Oracle, MySQL, MongoDB, Redis, Cassandra, DataStax Enterprise, Couchbase, MariaDB, Percona, PostgresSQL, DB2 Express and others.

The news of the acquisition also came with the availability of a new cloud service by Stratoscale designed to further simplify the deployment of its AWS services. According to the company, with this new service, a single-click can deploy a fully-managed and AWS-compatible relational database service (RDS) with seamless scalability, while removing operational friction.

Stratoscale has developed a hardware-agnostic and hyper-converged software solution for data centers that facilitates scale-out and simplifies operations of the IT infrastructure for organizations looking to grow without limitations. The integration of Tesora is going to improve the way Stratoscale is able to deliver database services for an on-premises AWS region, addressing market demand for managed noSQL, RDS, and adding DynamoDB, ElasticCache and Redshift compatible services that can be easily deployed in any environment.

“This acquisition is an important milestone in Stratoscale’s ability to help customers on their journey to the cloud. Organizations want to consume database as a service in a click-of-a-button. Stratoscale is happy to bring Tesora onboard to make this a reality,” said Ariel Maislos, CEO & Founder of Stratoscale.

Tesora empowers developers with self-service database provisioning and management and the ability to choose the best tool for the job from popular open source and commercial databases so organizations can reduce the time to market for new applications. According to Tesora, this increases IT productivity because it allows administrators to manage diverse database types in a manner that is consistent but at the same time leveraging the base native capabilities of each system. This also ensures compliance with organizations that have governance standards and regulations that apply to privacy, security and data sovereignty.
