Symphony Database Reduces Expenses and Complexity, Offers Instant Scalability
Savvis, a CenturyLink company (NYSE: CTL) and global leader in cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions for enterprises, today announced the availability of Savvis Symphony Database, a cloud-based database platform, in Europe.
Symphony Database, which Savvis unveiled in October 2011 in North America, brings the advantages of cloud computing to Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server environments without long-term licensing or server provisioning.
With just a few clicks, Symphony Database supplies everything necessary for a complete, secure database solution. Performance levels can be scaled up or down based on business needs, without interrupting operations, while providing performance guarantees and reduced costs compared with hosted database solutions.
"Savvis clients choose Symphony Database because its quick availability, pay-as-you-go model and instant scalability translates into reduced database expenses and complexity," said Neil Cresswell, EMEA managing director at Savvis. "We bring Savvis' mission-critical expertise to the Symphony Database, providing performance levels and availability on par with your traditional data center."
Users can select from Oracle Enterprise 11G RAC or Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 for the underlying technology. The service is available to European clients through Savvis' U.K. data centre in Slough.
Symphony Database complements the VMware-based Savvis Symphony suite of enterprise cloud solutions and Savvis' commitment to global expansion. The European launch of Symphony Database follows the recent opening of Savvis' Frankfurt, Germany, data centre.
