Aliso Viejo, California – (The Hosting News) – July 10, 2008 – Utility and grid computing solutions firm, 3Tera, Inc., has released for the immediate availability, its MySQL-R appliance, an addition to the AppLogic system catalog.
Designed to provide easy database replication for scaling and disaster recovery, MySQL-R is the first appliance in 3Tera’s complete Disaster Recovery Suite to be available with the AppLogic grid operating system. 3Tera will be demonstrating the capabilities of MySQL-R during the upcoming Velocity Web Performance and Operations Conference on June 23-24 in San Francisco, California.
Barry X Lynn, Chairman and CEO, 3Tera noted, ”Having been a Fortune 100 CIO, I’ve experienced firsthand how even costly and complicated disaster recovery solutions cannot be comfortably relied upon. Often companies backup and/or mirror their data and software only to find that when forced to run them on hardware and network configurations altered by disaster, they don’t always work. AppLogic packages applications with their data and infrastructure, so this problem doesn’t occur. The decision to start with MySQL was obvious. It is the most pervasive relational database management system in the world.”
3Tera’s Disaster Recovery Suite consists of data replication, connectivity, monitoring and management appliances that can provide disaster recovery to any online application simply by adding them to your application using the AppLogic visual editor. MySQL-R is available immediately and additional appliances will be released over the next three quarters. For more information visit: http://doc.3tera.com/AppLogic23/CatDatabaseAppliancesMySQLR.html.
Achieving an effective disaster recovery solution has always been difficult and expensive. Adding MySQL replication as a standard solution in AppLogic, 3Tera once again delivers world-class IT available to businesses of all sizes.
James Puddicombe, CEO, Voodoo Ltd, a premium e-business consultancy in the United Kingdom with over 100 clients remarked, ”We are stunned by the immense power and flexibility of the 3Tera Grid. Because we help our clients make the best use of leading technologies, the speed with which we were able to create a multi-replicated MySQL database system using the freely-provided drag-and-drop components in AppLogic shows why we are committing all our customers to the platform. In less than a day we were able to create a three-database circular replication process, with a fourth database providing real-time reporting facilities. In the past such a configuration has taken us weeks to get up to a state of production readiness.”
Albert Wu, CTO, Silkfair, an e-commerce startup and AppLogic user for over a year commented, ”AppLogic has already proven invaluable to our business. It’s given us confidence in being able to control and expand our infrastructure as we grow and even enabled us to migrate to a new datacenter with a single command. Having MySQL replication as a standard feature in AppLogic is very exciting for enhancing performance, reducing complexity and giving us additional path for online backup capabilities, which is an important part of a full disaster recovery solution.”
MySQL-R is available to existing AppLogic users at no additional cost as a standard catalog component in the AppLogic 2.3 Beta release. Users of the previous version of AppLogic can request access by contacting their provider.

Additional components of the Disaster Recovery Suite will be delivered over the next three quarters.
