NewSQL Vendor Clustrix is Awarded Patents for its Distributed Database Technology

Clustrix, provider of a scale-out SQL database engineered for the cloud,  has been granted two new patents for systems and methods for redistributing and slicing data in relational databases from the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

According to the company, the core Clustrix patents capture the company's parallel data distribution and slicing to deliver massive volume of transactions in a relational database with full ACID properties and linear horizontal scale. These inventions also enable automated recovery to ensure enterprise grade availability on cloud infrastructure.

“For years, people have been trying to figure out how to take a relational database and make sure that you can use it across multiple distributed servers and get linear, better performance and that is at essence of what these patents do,”  said Robin Purohit, CEO, Clustrix in an interview. “To us, it’s a great acknowledgement of the deep innovation that we have done as a company,” Purohit said.

Within the next few weeks Clustrix will be releasing its software as a downloadable freemium model. This will be a commercial download of the Clustrix software so it can be used on any cloud an organization chooses.
