Aerospike, a provider of next-generation, real-time NoSQL data solutions, has announced the debut of Aerospike Cloud to enable customers to build, manage and automate their own Aerospike database-as-a-service (DBaaS). Aerospike says that its cloud strategy is aimed at helping customers avoid public cloud vendor lock-in and minimize the complexity and cost of migrating workloads in hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments.
Aerospike Cloud is based on Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) standards which enterprises are adopting to simplify the deployment, orchestration, management, alerting, and monitoring of cloud applications across any public or private cloud environment. Aerospike Cloud will be available in the calendar-year second quarter of 2020.
According to research by Gartner, by 2022 75% of all databases will be deployed or migrated to a cloud platform.
“Aerospike Cloud provides our customers with the building blocks to deploy and manage Aerospike as a DBaaS solution,” said Srini Srinivasan, chief product officer and founder, Aerospike. “Built upon CNCF foundations that are being used by many of our customers today across their infrastructure and applications, Aerospike Cloud employs a standards-based approach that makes it easy to integrate Aerospike into any company’s overall cloud environment.”
The first release of Aerospike Cloud is optimized for workloads running in Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and includes the following features:
- Kubernetes Operator: Custom extensions to the Kubernetes API that encapsulate operations domain knowledge, such as scale-up, scale-down, cluster configuration management and upgrades.
- Helm Charts: For deployment of Aerospike clusters in a Kubernetes environment using the Helm package manager, a CNCF incubating project.
- Prometheus: Integration with the CNCF-graduated monitoring and alerting solution by way of a custom exporter for Aerospike Enterprise Edition and Alertmanager configs.
- Grafana: Integration with CNCF member Grafana Labs’ open source visualization platform through custom dashboards for the Aerospike EE Prometheus exporter.
