GigaOM Structure LaunchPad 2012 - Garantia
Data today announced the beta release of the first fully-automated,
in-memory NoSQL cloud service offering reliable Memcached and
infinitely-scalable Redis data store systems. Garantia Data is one of 11
finalists for the GigaOM Structure LaunchPad competition, which
recognizes emerging startups in the cloud computing industry, and will
present its new In-Memory
NoSQL Cloud on stage at the event today in San Francisco, CA.
Web companies, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, rely
on Memcached and Redis to support high-performance and rapid growth.
However, Memcached lacks reliability and Redis is limited in scalability
- a dataset cannot grow beyond a single Master server. In addition, both
require constant operational care. Garantia Data's breakthrough
dynamic-auto-sharding technology virtualizes multiple cloud servers into
an infinite pool of memory, enabling datasets to scale autonomously and
continuously from gigabytes to terabytes and even petabytes based on
their actual size. This zero-management service completely frees
developers from dealing with nodes, clusters, server lists,
configuration, scaling and failure recovery, while guaranteeing
absolutely no dat loss.
"We have leveraged sophisticated technology to solve real industry
pains," said Ofer Bengal, CEO of Garantia Data. "Our new in-memory NoSQL
cloud reinvents the way people use Memcached and Redis. We offer our
customers infinite, continuous and fully automated scalability in a
completely hassle-free cloud service. Memcached users enjoy full
reliability with absolutely no data loss. Redis users enjoy
infinite-scalability without compromising on any of the Redis commands."
"Garantia Data is a true zero-management service," said Adoram Rogel,
CTO of Abe's
Market, an online reseller of all-natural products. "We connected to
the in-memory NoSQL cloud in seconds, and from that moment on we never
had to deal with scaling, configuration or failure recovery again."
"Every web-scale application developer that uses distributed memory
caching should take a close look at this break-through solution from
Garantia Data," said Paul Burns, president of cloud computing industry
analyst firm Neovise.
"It not only delivers Memcached and Redis capabilities as a cloud
service through an API, it makes them reliable and scalable. It also
eliminates the time consuming, error-prone administrative processes
typically involved in establishing and maintaining private caching
Price and Availability
The Garantia Data in-memory NoSQL cloud is currently available free of
charge to early adopters during the beta phase. When it transitions to
general availability later this year, the company will offer a "pay as
you go" model, by which instead of paying for full instances, the
customer will only pay for actual memory consumption, in an analogous
way to metered utilities and at price per-gigabyte similar to those of
plain cloud instances.
The Garantia Data in-memory NoSQL cloud is currently available on Amazon
Web Services. The company intends to expand its offering to other public
clouds later this year.
