Tesora Enterprise 1.5 Expands OpenStack Database as a Service
New features in Tesora Enterprise 1.5 include several from the upcoming OpenStack Liberty release, providing improved MongoDB and Reddis database support.OpenStack database-as-a-service (DBaaS) vendor Tesora released version 1.5 of Tesora Enterprise 1.5 today, providing users with new features including several that are part of the upcoming OpenStack Liberty release. Tesora is a venture-backed vendor that has raised $14.5 million in funding to date, including a $5.8 million round announced on Aug. 13. The company is one of the leading contributors to the OpenStack Trove DBaaS project, which is part of the OpenStack Liberty milestone that is set to officially debut on Oct. 15. Among the new updates in Tesora DBaaS Platform Enterprise Edition 1.5 that come from OpenStack Liberty are improved MongoDB and Reddis database support. The updates include not only features that are set to debut in OpenStack Liberty, but also improved hardened capabilities from the OpenStack Kilo release of Trove that first became generally available in the open-source project in April, according to Ken Rugg, founder and CEO of Tesora. In the OpenStack Kilo release, IBM contributed DB2 and CouchDB database support, which Tesora has since brought into its own testing regimen to integrate the capabilities into its Tesora DBaaS Platform Enterprise Edition, he said. "We're also bringing in some capabilities that we have been working on internally that are already part of our testing that will show up in the OpenStack Liberty release," Rugg told eWEEK.
The new items from the OpenStack Liberty code that Tesora is bringing to market include improved backup, clustering and user management capabilities for the MongoDB database. Tesora also worked on improving Reddis database support with an improved user interface.
