CodeFutures Eyes Well-Rounded Success in 'Shards'

By Rory J. Thompson

With databases growing ever larger, companies are looking for solutions to help keep it all manageable and scalable. That’s good news for CodeFutures and its main offering, dbShards, the most comprehensive database scalability package working with proven DBMS engines.

“The dbShards project was started in 2007, and has been in production with major customers since 2009,” said Cory Isaacson, CEO and CTO of CodeFutures. “Our company not only has great technology, we have a tremendous amount of experience and expertise regarding database scalability and continuous operation.”

That experience will come in handy for companies utilizing “Relational Sharding,” the most efficient method for database partitioning and scalability across a cluster of nodes, and a specialty of CodeFutures. But there’s even better news on the horizon.

“We’re hard at work on dbShards 3.x, which will greatly expand the feature set and capabilities of the product – in ways not available in the market today,” Isaacson said.

As with all aware companies these days, CodeFutures is finding its niche in the cloud, a perfect fit for its technology.

“The cloud is the most common deployment environment for dbShards,” Isaacson said. “The technology supports high-availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) to ensure that critical databases stay up and operational.” That’s good news for companies that need real-time availability. And it’s going to get even better.

“dbShards 3.x will be a major leap forward in Cloud Database technology,” Isaacson noted. “While I cannot say much about it yet, I can say that we will have a level of operational capabilities, performance and scale that will be unmatched by any other vendor.”

Such enthusiasm will be helpful for companies looking to make a change, because a lot of customers are overwhelmed with the number of choices today; it’s a complex market and environment.

“There are more great DBMS engines than ever before – our challenge is getting our message out to let people know what great multi-DBMS support we offer,” Isaacson said.

The number of options for database technology continues to grow, as does the size of databases, which are getting absolutely huge.

“Customers are telling us they need a way to rationalize this and support Big Data with the right DBMS engine for the job,” Isaacson said. “This is the space we’re ready and able to fill.”
