Rackspace’s Popular Cloud Computing Tools Ecosystem

FathomDB provides a seamless database management experience that leverages Cloud Servers

Rackspace Session at Cloud Expo

The Rackspace Cloud, the cloud computing division of Rackspace Hosting announced on Thursday the latest addition to Rackspace’s popular Cloud Tools ecosystem.

FathomDB, a leader in Database-as-a-Service (DaaS), enables businesses and developers to easily manage their MySQL databases in the cloud.

Now built on The Rackspace Cloud’s open, standards-based API, FathomDB provides a seamless database management experience that leverages Cloud Servers and frees users from time-consuming system administration tasks.

FathomDB helped launch the DaaS industry by offering an interactive user interface and analytics engine to support relational databases in the Cloud – initially just using Amazon EC2 and S3, but now by also leveraging The Rackspace Cloud portfolio.

Handling many arduous but necessary steps required to run databases, FathomDB offers a range of time-saving features, including automated backups and routine maintenance tasks, powerful analytic tools, real-time monitoring and performance graphs for optimizing code, and easy point-and-click configuration.

FathomDB chose to become a strategic partner with The Rackspace Cloud because of its reputation for Fanatical Support®, its standards-based and open approach to cloud computing, and its focus on simplifying technology.

"Because we've always strived to take the pain out of running databases, The Rackspace Cloud was a natural choice for us to team up with. We share the same philosophy of openness and are united in the goal of making cloud computing easy," said Justin Santa Barabara, CEO, FathomDB. "By joining their burgeoning ecosystem, we not only attract new customers through their Cloud Tools website, but we become a part of The Rackspace Cloud family."

General Manager of The Rackspace Cloud, Emil Sayegh, is excited to offer customers a competitive relational database service for the cloud by partnering with FathomDB. “Ensuring that our cloud is reliable and scalable, and delivering a Fanatical Support experience to our customers and partners are primary objectives for us. We support strategic partnerships because they extend the power of our cloud offerings. By working together with FathomDB, as well as the Cassandra open source project, we are simplifying the challenging nature of scaling databases in the cloud. It is through transparent relationships like these that we can solve many customer needs; meanwhile our competitors are trying to solve these problems alone.”

FathomDB was featured as one of VentureBeat’s list of “Ten Y Combinator companies that want to revolutionize social networking, search, databases and anything else you can think of.” The San Francisco-based company is the latest addition to Rackspace’s Cloud Tools ecosystem. Developers can run databases on The Rackspace Cloud using FathomDB for as little as $0.02 per hour. To get started, visit the FathomDB website.

When Enterprises started adopting Hadoop-based Big Data environments over the last ten years, they were mainly on-premise deployments.

The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
