Percona Live 2016: Exclusive Announcement of New Version from Clustrix
New Capabilities Will Boost Scalability and Accuracy to Fuel New Innovative Applications

SAN FRANCISCO, April 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Clustrix, provider of the first scale-out database designed for the elastic scaling requirements of high-transaction, high-value workloads of today's web applications, announced that it is sponsoring Percona Live 2016, taking place April 18–21 in Santa Clara, Calif. At the event, Clustrix will announce details of a new version of ClustrixDB, which will afford unprecedented flexibility and performance.

"Today's Web applications need superior scalability and accuracy without compromise," said Mike Azevedo, CEO, Clustrix. "Traditionally, if you want to emphasize transaction accuracy, you do so at the expense of scalability. We're going to show that this is no longer the case—you can scale to process millions of transactions per second instantly, while maintaining the highest standards in accuracy with full ACID compliance."

Powering the next generation of innovative applications with scale-out SQL

ClustrixDB is built from the ground up to power applications that handle high-value, high-transaction workloads, which have an equal need for scalability and accuracy, such as those in ad tech, gaming, e-commerce and IoT. The company has already demonstrated the database's capabilities in a well-documented benchmark which showed that it can scale out linearly to maintain peak performance (i.e., low latency), thereby exceeding the performance of AWS Aurora by 10 times.

A drop-in MySQL replacement, ClustrixDB allows companies flexible scale to accommodate  performance needs by simply adding or removing server nodes. While this is a wholly unique capability for a fully fault-tolerant, ACID-compliant relational database, it is one which the company believes will be required by the next generation of applications. "More businesses are going to need to scale to process tens of millions of transactions seamlessly—such as those in IoT for example—but not necessarily all year," said Dave Anselmi, Director of Project Management at Clustrix. "They will require SQL that truly scales out like a cloud application, but they will have the budgetary flexibility to pay for extra capacity only when they need it."

Those attending the conference are encouraged to attend the Clustrix sponsored Breakout Session titled, "Scaling MySQL: Strategies, Challenges, & A Better Solution."  You're also invited to stop by the Clustrix Booth to learn firsthand about all of ClustrixDB's exciting new capabilities, as well as the growing list of dynamic companies that are powering their most sophisticated applications with ClustrixDB.
