Hystax and FlashGrid partner to help enterprises move mission-critical workloads to the cloud
Hystax expands its solutions portfolio with SkyCluster, enabling Oracle RAC mobility between datacenters and AWS, Azure, and GCP clouds.
Hystax and FlashGrid announce a partnership to facilitate enterprise cloud migration of mission-critical workloads in the process of digital transformation. Hystax provides companies with a smart, cost-effective live cloud migration and Disaster Recovery software, enabling data mobility with full automation and predictability for a wide range of enterprise workloads.
A key component of enterprise IT infrastructures is a highly available clustered database, with Oracle Real Application Cluster (RAC) being the preferred DBMS in many implementations. To address the need for migrating Oracle RAC from datacenters to public clouds, and between clouds for customers adopting the multi-cloud strategy, Hystax has partnered with FlashGrid.
FlashGrid SkyCluster enables customers to deploy scalable Oracle RAC clusters on public clouds in a simple and straightforward way. SkyCluster is an engineered cloud system designed for database high availability, built automatically with an Infrastructure-as-Code script in customer’s cloud account. SkyCluster runs proven Oracle RAC database engine to deliver best-in-class active-active high availability in the cloud for the large ecosystem of enterprise applications using Oracle Database.
The solution is important for enterprises aiming to move to a public cloud in a digital transformation phase but facing the limitation of Oracle clusters not natively supported by public clouds. Hystax and FlashGrid provide companies with smart and fully automated solution to move 100% of their workloads, including Oracle RAC, to AWS, Azure, and GCP.
“Together with FlashGrid, Hystax now can offer customers an end-to-end array of cloud migration and management solutions that include Oracle RAC but also go far beyond that, encompassing domain controllers, other databases and application servers. The combined solution delivers a unique value as it meets all the critical requirements of enterprise customers that have Oracle RAC databases and want to move them to the cloud, between clouds, or do new mission-critical database implementations,” said Nick Smirnov, CEO and Co-Founder at Hystax.
“FlashGrid SkyCluster provides the database high availability component for the cloud, and Hystax Acura take care of orchestrating the migration and inter-cloud mobility of entire IT infrastructures, now including mission-critical RAC databases – a perfect combination for the enterprise customer,” said Emil Sildos, Vice President Business Development and Sales at FlashGrid.
Hystax delivers hybrid cloud management platform with a focus on the IT budget control, smart cloud migration and IT Resilience. The company has a strong presence on the cloud migration and DR market with Telecoms, Cloud Service Providers and MSPs as target customers and partners.
FlashGrid makes database high availability simple, robust, and infrastructure agnostic. FlashGrid software allows large and small enterprises to run mission-critical databases on a commodity compute, storage and network infrastructure of their choice – in the data center or in the public cloud.
