Database as a Service and the safety of your data. Introducing Severalnines.

Your data is precious. So precious that in fact  decades of research have gone into making sure your data is not lost.

Now, reality tells us that data can be lost in so many different ways, that having a redundant system is not for the faint of heart, or resources for that matter.

Having said that, we are happy to announce that we have partnered with SeveralNines, who specialize in automation systems and making data replication really simple. Read on to know more about this agreement.

Database as a Service

Yes, a lot of terms have arisen since the dawn of mainstream cloud computing. Infrastructure as a service and Software as a Service are just a few.

One of these terms is less known but just as important. Database as a Service (DBaaS). As the name suggests, Databases can now be provisioned on demand and scale accordingly.

So what happens when you couple DBaaS and almost instant provisioning of virtual servers? Well, thanks to SeveralNines you also have an easy to use and deploy database replication solution. What a mouthful! I would say, but don’t let that long definition scare you. What it basically means is that you have your database replicated on several machines, thus ensuring the safeguard of your data.

Safe not only technically

Thanks to the location of City Network’s datacenter and in compliance with European data protection Laws, we are able to safeguard your data not only technically but legally.

This means that no matter where in the world you reside, you are out of reach from initiatives such as the US Patriot Act which, in a nutshell, may allow Law agencies to get a hold of your data without your consent.

Now on City Cloud

We are really excited to have SeveralNines as our new partner and their platform, a database automation and management platform that helps companies run flexible databases anywhere, whether on their premises or in the cloud.

It is based on City Network’s Cloud computing platform, City Cloud, which allows unlimited growth with a focus on stability, security and redundancy.
