Managed Database Service, Logicworks
NWC readers rank reliability and availability just behind security as the most important features in a hosted service offering. Logicworks feeds the need for reliability with a "No Transaction Lost" guarantee for its managed database service. Customers who host Microsoft, Oracle and MySQL applications with Logicworks take advantage of clustering, mirroring, replication, or dynamic failover configurations to ensure 100 percent database availability and five-nines network uptime. Although customers manage their own applications using a variety of access mechanisms into Logicworks' facilities, the provider maintains a fully redundant environment, including servers, load balancers, firewalls and switches. A mirrored storage system ensures a full, live copy of data is always available. Pricing is customized based on hardware and storage needs.
