To augment its product and service offerings both within and outside of the cloud, TransLattice, a provider of a geographically distributed database management system for enterprise, cloud and hybrid environments, has acquired Red Bank, NJ-based StormDB, Inc.
The StormDB database is based on PostgreSQL, and can be deployed in-house in a data center, in the cloud, or through the company’s hosted database-as-a-service.
TransLattice expects to incorporate proprietary StormDB capabilities and elements of the open source Postgres-XC into the TransLattice Elastic Database (TED) to enhance the system’s effectiveness and scope, and also plans to integrate StormDB features to extend TED's big data capabilities.
According to TransLattice, enterprises are moving towards PostgreSQL solutions as they aim to reduce their total cost of ownership with a feature-rich SQL database.
"We're very excited that through this acquisition TransLattice will be able to deliver additional advanced database capabilities provided by StormDB's technology. By joining forces, we'll be able to take distributed relational database technology to the next level,” said Frank Huerta, CEO and co-founder, TransLattice, in a statement released by the company.
