Continuous Availability Demand Drives xKoto's Growth

WALTHAM, Mass. -- xkoto, the database virtualization company, today reported continued growth in the first half of 2008, as more businesses requiring continuous availability and scalability for business-critical applications chose GRIDSCALE over costly traditional database clustering technologies.

In the second quarter alone, company revenues grew more than 400 percent over the same quarter last year. xkoto continued to increase its customer base with a number of new customers including: Comdata Corporation, HSBC, Independence Blue Cross, Norfolk Southern Corporation, and PUMA AG International. These organizations chose GRIDSCALE database virtualization software to eliminate downtime, improve scalability and dramatically lower costs for business-critical databases.

On the partner front, xkoto strengthened and expanded its relationship with IBM by selecting IBM to deliver Level 1 & 2 technical support worldwide for businesses running GRIDSCALE with DB2. xkoto also joined forces with several companies that will resell and provide implementation services for GRIDSCALE in both the United States and in Europe. xkotos newest partners include: Fourth Millennium Technologies, a Houston-based company with expertise in database design and implementation; Germany-based DB2 resellers IT Gain and LIS.TEC; and Novalia Consulting, a reseller located in Spain. The company also extended its alliance agreement with existing partner, The Fillmore Group. For more information about xkoto partners or to become an xkoto partner, visit
