Thursday April 24, 2014 0 commentsBOULDER -CodeFutures, a provider of agile Big Data technologies, announced the U.S. Patent Office has granted it a patent for its Continuous Replication technology that helps database administrators perform maintenance and other processing functions without downtime.
CodeFutures said U.S. Patent 8,626,709, titled "Scalable Relational Database Replication," adds to the company's growing portfolio of database innovations. CodeFutures said its database performance tools, including dbShards for scaling large, high-transaction volume databases, dramatically increases deployed database scalability, performance and reliability.
"Our mission is to help database administrators and the organizations they work for gain the utmost value from the massive volume of data that flows into - yet is hard to extract from - today's database platforms," said Cory Isaacson, CodeFutures CEO.
"This patent helps reduce data availability downtime, a problem that can be very problematic for many different types of organizations."
CodeFutures said its patent provides the technology backbone for dbShards/Replicate, an innovative database replication technique called Continuous Replication. Continuous Replication offers reliability between DBMS instances, even if one of the DBMS instances is offline, allowing database administrators the freedom to perform maintenance, restores and other vital tasks without downtime.
The company said Continuous Replication can be used within a single cloud or data center or can span multiple data centers or cloud environments for Disaster Recovery support. The technology supports a highly efficient replication mechanism for high-reliability characteristics, ensuring that transactions are safe, even if one of the participating database instances is down or offline.
CodeFutures said its database products are used by leading enterprises, including FedEx, HSBC, T-Mobile, Lehman Brothers, General Electric, JP Morgan Chase, Walt Disney, Wells Fargo Bank, Kraft Foods, Bank of America, Lockheed Martin, ABN AMRO Bank, Verizon, Compass Bank, Siemens and United Airlines.
