As the saying goes, we at Severalnines have been walking on several clouds this year, 9 to be precise!

And in the spirit of celebration, we would like to announce our:

Cloud 4 – reaching over 7,000 installations via the Severalnines Configurator

The Severalnines Configurator allows you to generate a production class configuration for a clustered MySQL configuration. It also generates a deployment package that automates the deployment of the complete database setup. Topologies can be based on MySQL Replication, MySQL Cluster or MySQL Galera.

We have a great user base and in order to facilitate communication within our user community, we set up our Severalnines Customer Services platform with forums, online support, etc. both for paying customers as well as users. Check it out and join the conversation!

Cloud 5 – our Customers

At Severalnines, our goal is to reduce database costs, ease deployment, simplify management and increase DBA and developer productivity.

But rather than us telling you why we think we are great, we wanted to provide documented case studies on how our innovative products are helping customers meet and exceed business goals for their database operations. See what our customers have to say about us.

Cloud 6 – introducing Severalnines DataCloud™

Severalnines DataCloud™ enables DBaaS for public, private and hybrid clouds.

Cloud 8 – being talked about at the European Commission – Severalnines in the News

Following our announcement of the City Cloud Database Service, the press took over and 20+ original articles later, we discovered that we were even being talked about at European Commission conferences.

Cloud 9 – winning the EuroCloud Sweden & Europe Awards 2011 for Best Startup!!!

We did it! After winning the EuroCloud Award for Sweden, we won the EuroCloud Europe Award for Best Startup last week in Paris at a prestigious ceremony on the Seine.
