Zimory technology, code-named “Spree,” enables companies to treat the database as an elastic, customizable resource – whether in a conventional, virtualized, or cloud environment. Spree, scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2010, can be used to prepare a data center for virtualization, for the cloud, or be used independent of a cloud environment to provide scalability and customization of the data layer in traditional IT deployments.
Zimory’s Enterprise Cloud technology combines existing different virtual servers (currently VMware, Xen and KVM) into a homogeneous “Infrastructure as a Service” offering – enabling data center managers to move applications quickly within single or multiple locations.
Launched in January, Zimory Enterprise Cloud Management aggregates available server computing capacity and builds secure, self-service cloud environments for large organizations.
When Spree is combined with the additional tools available as part of Zimory’s offerings, it can be used to migrate conventional deployments into virtual machines and/or clouds — always with the guarantee that the migration process can be reversed, while remaining entirely under the control of the user. With these features, users can implement a wide variety of configurations such as:
· distributed setups with part of the system residing locally, and parts of it residing on other data centers, or with a service provider;
· a local backup of a cloud database, or a backup database in the cloud;
· dynamic provisioning of capacity across data centers and service providers, including database functionality;
· high availability and continuous availability solutions in centralized and distributed settings.
