PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ClearDB, an innovative database-as-a-service (DBaaS) for MySQL-powered applications, today announced that the company’s founder and CEO, Cashton Coleman, will speak at the first SNIA Data Storage Innovation (DSI) conference, in Santa Clara, California, April 22-24, 2014. Coleman’s session titled “Database-as-a-Service vs. Do-It-Yourself MySQL in the Cloud” will take place on Tuesday, April 22, 2014 at 4:50 p.m. local time.
When companies are looking to move a website, app, or their whole business from a traditional hosting provider, one of the first challenges is whether or not to run their own MySQL database and MySQL-powered infrastructure (the DYI approach) versus a cloud database service to run it for them. The ability to run 80-100 percent of an app using readily available services to reduce time, resources and cost versus rolling their own components, including their database, is certainly very appealing. This session will look at the pros and cons of working with a cloud database-as-a-service.
Cashton Coleman is the founder and CEO of ClearDB. He has been building highly available systems and services for more than 15 years, and designed and implemented the core technology behind ClearDB. Before ClearDB, he was the chief architect for Salon.com.
The Data Storage Innovation Conference (DSI) is owned and produced by the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA). DSI is targeted at IT decision-makers, technology implementers, and those expected to influence, implement and support data storage in production environments. DSI identifies the latest IT and storage technology innovations, examines the challenges and opportunities IT organizations most frequently face, and offers practical solutions from leading vendors, consultants and innovative IT end-users. DSI’s agenda offers vendor-neutral SNIA Tutorials, end-user case studies, presentations from Storage-focused analysts and technologists, technical updates and roadmaps from industry associations, and product talks from vendors (both well-known and startups).

It keeps its customers connected to their databases even during region-wide cloud service outages. The ClearDB platform is built on top of native, unaltered MySQL in order to work with existing code.
