Bluewolf Launches MySQL Database Implementation Service
-- Expands Bluewolf Direct MySQL Monitoring Service --
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bluewolf (www.bluewolf.com), a leading on-demand resourcing and IT consulting firm, today launched a new MySQL database implementation service for businesses of all sizes. The service offering is an extension of Bluewolf Direct™, the company's Remote Database Administration (DBA) service. Bluewolf’s service provides businesses with access to its team of U.S.-based MySQL experts to ensure the successful implementation of MySQL -- the world's most popular open source database.
“When we had a problem with our database upgrade, our Bluewolf primary DBA handled it in no time, possibly because he was able to refer to an entire team for guidance.”
“Our new service enables businesses to ensure that the technology, innovation and process are best optimized by your MySQL database -- allowing business professionals to focus on their core business,” said Michael Kirven, cofounder and principal of Bluewolf. “With its superior speed, reliability, and ease of use, MySQL has become the preferred choice for Web, Web 2.0, SaaS, ISV, telecom companies and forward-thinking corporate IT managers because it eliminates the major problems associated with downtime, maintenance and administration for modern, online applications.
Bluewolf’s MySQL experts are certified and highly-trained, with hundreds of hours of hands-on experience with MySQL. They are based in Bluewolf’s offices in New York and San Francisco. In addition to implementation, the Bluewolf Direct Remote DBA program provides MySQL remote monitoring, including 24x7 proactive and reactive support. The Bluewolf Remote DBA infrastructure supports thousands of databases nationwide.
"I love Bluewolf's Remote DBA service because it's like having ten brains working for us instead of just one," said Ken Mills, senior vice president, American Institute for Charter Property Casualty Underwriters (AICPCU/IIA). "When we had a problem with our database upgrade, our Bluewolf primary DBA handled it in no time, possibly because he was able to refer to an entire team for guidance."
Kirven added, “MySQL has many benefits for the enterprise, including its lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to proprietary database systems such as Oracle, and zero licensing fees. In addition, organizations can choose the specific configuration of MySQL that they need, and implement a database system that has ultimate flexibility. Open source developers care primarily about quality and flexibility, making MySQL a very attractive product. All types of companies are using it, from Facebook to NASA."
MySQL is the world's most popular open source database software, with over 100 million copies of its software downloaded or distributed throughout its history. Currently, the most popular MySQL offering is MySQL Enterprise, a comprehensive set of production-tested software, proactive monitoring tools, and premium support services available in an affordable annual subscription.
The MySQL database is owned, developed and supported by Sun Microsystems, one of the world's largest contributors to open source software. MySQL was originally founded and developed in Sweden by two Swedes and a Finn: David Axmark, Allan Larsson and Michael "Monty" Widenius, who had worked together since the 1980's.
