(The Hosting News) – ScaleArc today announced the launch of ScaleArc iDB v2.5 for SQL Server at PASS Summit 2013. ScaleArc iDB is the first database traffic management software built that increases the performance and availability of mission-critical applications and websites by optimizing and scaling the database tier. PASS Summit 2013 attendees will be the first to witness how the new release of ScaleArc iDB can be transparently inserted into a SQL Server 2012 environment to immediately boost performance, scalability and availability of AlwaysOn clusters, while also delivering a new set of real-time analytics that can reduce troubleshooting times from days/hours to minutes.
“ScaleArc iDB has already boosted our revenue by optimizing our SQL Server environment, both in our own datacenter as well as the cloud,” said Dr. Aleksandr Yampolskiy, CTO of BlogTalkRadio. “Now with the latest release, ScaleArc gives us even more flexibility within our SQL Server environment to boost availability and performance without requiring valuable engineering resources, which also saves us money.”
ScaleArc’s commitment to providing high quality and unique software to the SQL Server community has been extended through today’s launch of ScaleArc iDB version 2.5, and provides the following new benefits to the community:
- Advanced connection multiplexing for .NET applications
- Native AlwaysOn support for read-intent connection routing, combined with replication lag monitoring of Secondary replica servers in AlwaysOn availability groups to ensure data integrity
- Integrated AlwaysOn automatic failover and server role change in iDB to boost overall availability
- Increased compatibility with Windows Server Hyper-V and the Windows Azure public cloud
“With this latest release, customers can now migrate to and take advantage of the benefits of SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn clusters faster and at less cost while improving scalability and availability, by leveraging ScaleArc iDB,” said Justin Barney, CEO of ScaleArc. “In addition, we enable the use of SQL Server in a cloud environment, including Microsoft’s Windows Azure cloud. Customers can migrate to the cloud from their own datacenters with absolutely zero compromise to performance.”
