Driven By Customer Growth And Innovative New Products, Continuent Remains Well Positioned For Continued Expansion In Database High Availability Segment
San Jose, Calif. – February 14, 2008 – Continuent, Inc.,the leading provider of commercial open source middleware solutions for database high-availability and scalability, today announced new customer adoptions in North America and Europe in 2007. Continuent’s momentum was fueled by the increasing demand from enterprise customers requiring highly reliable and scalable solutions that ensure continuous access to enterprise data.
Continuent’s key partners, MySQL®, PostgreSQL and EnterpriseDB™, increasingly gained more significant foothold in enterprise environment in 2007, subsequently increasing the need by these customers to deploy business-critical solutions such as Continuent uni/cluster.
Continuent has remained as the leading open source-based solution for companies seeking high availability and scalability for their open source based applications. During 2007, almost 100 companies such as Capgemini (France), CNET Networks, La-Z-Boy, The National Weather Service (NOOA), OptionMONSTER, PrimeNewswire (a NASDAQ company), Thales Group (UK, Spain) and Thomson Scientific chose Continuent uni/cluster for their database high availability needs. Additionally, over 30,000 companies downloaded Continuent's open source solution, Sequoia (http://sequoia.continuent.org).
In 2007, Continuent enhanced its flagship products, Continuent uni/cluster for MySQL, Continuent uni/cluster for PostgreSQL and Continuent uni/cluster for EnterpriseDB, releasing two major upgrades during the year. These solutions allow Continuent uni/cluster to reach the next level of availability and scalability in demanding production environments. Continuent also started development of its next generation "Tungsten" solution, due out during 2008.
"As data availability increasingly becomes the lifeblood of success for enterprises, the need for solutions that provide business continuity and scalability has become essential," said Eero Teerikorpi, CEO of Continuent. "Continuent uni/cluster solutions allow our customers to use MySQL and PostgreSQL with their enterprise-caliber applications, which earlier would have required more expensive commercial database solutions. We are well-positioned to continue our success in 2008 and beyond."
