Clustrix founding CEO and Isilon Co-Founder, Paul Mikesell, discusses a new database architecture and solution developed over the past three and a half years.
Clustrix is the technology leader in Clustered Database Systems (CDS) for Internet-scale applications. The Clustrix CLX 4010 is a highly scalable database solution that addresses the infrastructure scalability challenges facing Internet companies, enterprises, and cloud service providers.
This new solution brings to database administrators the best of both worlds: the high-performance, high-scalability of NoSQL key value stores and the relational, ACID-compliant and robust functionality of SQL—while providing drop-in interoperability with the MySQL protocol.
