Clustrix is the leading scale-out SQL database engineered for the cloud.

The combination of big data and cloud computing has broken the legacy database, creating an industry transition to new scale-out database platforms. Clustrix has delivered on a complete reinvention of the relational database, and the result is a highly differentiated platform that is ideal for the industry transition to cloud computing.

Clustrix is the first and only row-based SQL database to bring massively parallel processing (MPP) to both transactions and real-time analytics.  With the release of Clustrix 5.0, customers can easily scale-out a database that can support massive transaction volumes and use true, real-time analytics for unmatched operational intelligence to drive real-time business decisions.

For high-scale transactions, Clustrix delivers near linear scale at virtually any dataset size and concurrency.  Real-time analytic queries are split into query fragments, which are processed in parallel by multiple cores across multiple nodes in a cluster.  Best of all, a single Clustrix database can process massive transaction volumes and complex analytic queries at the same time on the same operational data set.  And Clustrix simplifies operations with built in fault tolerance for high availability and self-managing operations. 

The Clustrix scale-out SQL database is battle-tested in mission-critical customer applications all over the world, providing unprecedented levels of performance, scalability, and real-time analytics.

Clustrix is available today on AWS Marketplace, on-demand at Rackspace, GoGrid, Equinix, and BlueBoxGroup, and through our popular appliance.  Companies can start with Clustrix for less operating cost than a single DBA, scale at 1/3 the cost of a custom sharding implementation, and operate at 1/10 the cost of an equivalent Oracle Exadata configuration.
