announced the availability of its Redis
Cloud and Memcached
Cloud database hosting services on the Windows Azure cloud platform.
Garantia Data's services will provide thousands of developers who run
their applications on Windows Azure with virtually infinite scalability,
high availability, high-performance and zero-management in just one
Used by both enterprise developers and cutting-edge start-ups, Redis and
Memcached are open source, RAM (News - Alert)-based, key-value memory stores that
provide significant value in a wide range of important use cases.
Garantia Data's Redis Cloud and Memcached Cloud are reliable and
fully-automated services for running Redis and Memcached on the cloud -
essentially freeing developers from dealing with nodes, clusters,
scaling, data-persistence configuration and failure recovery.
"We are happy to be the first to offer the community a Redis
architecture on Windows Azure," said Ofer Bengal, CEO of Garantia Data.
"We have seen great demand among .Net and Windows users for scalable,
highly available and fully-automated services for Redis and Memcached.
Our Redis Cloud and Memcached Cloud provide exactly the sort
functionality they need."
"We're very excited to welcome Garantia Data to the Windows Azure
ecosystem," said Rob Craft, Senior Director Cloud Strategy at Microsoft (News - Alert).
"Services such as Redis Cloud and Memcached Cloud give customers the
production, workload-ready services they can use today to solve real
business problems on Windows Azure."
Redis Cloud scales seamlessly and infinitely, so a Redis dataset can
grow to any size while supporting all Redis commands. Memcached Cloud
offers a storage engine and full replication capabilities to standard
Memcached. Both provide true high-availability, including instant
failover with no human intervention. In addition, they run a dataset on
multiple CPUs and use advanced techniques to maximize performance for
any dataset size.
