Elastra delivers scalable OLTP. For Real?

Elastra now offers scalable OLTP via Amazon's compute cloud.

Supported Db's include:

  • MySQL
  • Postgresql
  • EnterpriseDB

    When Elastra first decloaked late 2007, they were all about scaling read-only BI databases, which is the easy problem to solve and I wasn't very excited.

    This Enterprise DB press release, however, implies that they've got a point-and-clicky active-active-active-etc cluster technology, with automatic-versioning for ~ $400/mo (per server).

    Quote the release:

    EnterpriseDB, the Oracle-compatible database company, today announced EnterpriseDB Advanced Server Cloud Edition, a version of the company’s flagship RDBMS that is built on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) Web services. EnterpriseDB has selected Elastra, the world’s first provider of elastic relational databases on demand, as its premier cloud computing software partner. Elastra’s Elastic Database Technology enables EnterpriseDB Advanced Server to run in a virtual, highly scalable, cloud-computing environment
