Xkoto Launches GridScale

WALTHAM, Mass. -- xkoto, the database virtualization company, today announced GRIDSCALE for Microsoft SQL Server, a product that improves application performance, scalability and reliability in SQL Server environments.

GRIDSCALE for Microsoft SQL Server is an active-active solution that virtualizes the database infrastructure. It enables businesses to distribute application loads horizontally across multiple instances of SQL Server, resulting in better reliability and performance than that of more costly and complex legacy clustering solutions. With GRIDSCALE for SQL Server, businesses can eliminate planned and unplanned outages, rapidly scale application load across SQL Servers, and implement cost-effective disaster recovery solutions.

With GRIDSCALE, database administrators can perform hardware upgrades and software updates without having an impact on system performance or uptime. Plus, GRIDSCALE eliminates the limitations of clustering configurations, such as shared storage, partitioning and mirroring.

We are confident that GRIDSCALE for SQL Server will deliver the reliability and performance we require to meet the needs of our new Home Security customers,” said Drew DeNardo, Director of IT, InGrid, Inc. “We're using an ASP-based Web store, and if our database is down, that means lost sales. GRIDSCALE for SQL Server is a cost-effective way to give InGrid's e-commerce engine the same sort of reliability that GRIDSCALE for DB2 has provided for our core Home Security services.”
