This is a guest blog post written by Yuval Lubowich, AVP of Products at Xeround - a Joyent partner that provides a zero-management, highly-available and scalable Cloud Database for MySQL applications.
What is Xeround?
Xeround Cloud Database seamlessly replaces your existing MySQL database and lets you scale automatically and maintain high availability - all in a simple, zero management database-as-a-service.
Rather than having to manually install, configure, monitor and manage your database to ensure it is running smoothly, you can now create a new DB instance instantly and guarantee availability and scalability with just one click.
Xeround’s database service includes:
Xeround’s service comes in 3 editions and includes a free tier and two paid plans. Initially, we’re offering Xeround’s free plan to Joyent cloud users, with additional plans scheduled to launch soon.
Xeround’s free plan is limited up to 10MB and is most suitable for small web applications and for development and testing purposes. It enables developers to experience the least amount of friction when developing for the cloud- freeing them to focus on their code rather than on DB management tasks or on the IT side of things.
No code changes are required for porting your existing MySQL app, and no architectural or coding considerations are required to ensure availability or enable scaling -- we take care of all of that for you.
