dbWARE™ Database

MaxxCAT dbWARE is an enterprise grade database, rack mountable appliance running over our own innovative WARE (Write Anywhere, Read Everywhere) technology.

If new content is added to any node, it appears instantly on the other nodes. If a database is updated, the update is reliably propagated to all other dbWARE nodes, even if the nodes are connected by different speed WANS or LANS. The dbWARE appliances can be located in the same rack, or in different areas of the world. The connections between WARE nodes are WAN optimized, encrypted, and fault tolerant.

Easily scale out information systems without the traditional complexities of multi-homing servers, disaster recovery, failover/failback, WAN latency or ensuring data consistency across multiple nodes.

Multi-node scalable redundancy over LANS or WANS. With MaxxCAT dbWARE appliances, achieving high availability, disaster recovery, and increased throughput is as easy as racking a new node, anywhere in the world.

Write Anywhere

Write Anywhere

Writing to any dbWARE node self replicates the write to all other nodes. This means that you can have your website served by servers in multiple geographic locations or cloud points with no more complexity than managing a single web server. Replicating a database at multiple locations is as simple as installing a dbWARE node -- all writes to all nodes are replicated at all other nodes. Client applications are aware of only one database and all of the write synchronization happens under the hood, without needing specialized programming or modifications.

Read Everywhere

Applications, websites and databases with heavy read loads can have instant performance increases by distributing load across multiple WARE nodes. Read performance is enhanced by parallelism even across WAN connected WARE nodes. Client reads, whether they are file reads, database reads, or web services occur at the closest, fastest available WARE node to the client.

Database Search Connector

dbWARE for Executives

dbWARE is a database technology that allows you to have multiple copies of your important data and data driven applications spread across many geographical regions for the maximum in uptime, reliability and data safety. Because it can have many identical nodes, dbWARE can survive power loss, network failure or catastrophic events and keep your data save and your business running. It is truly a 21st century technology

In addition to the peace of mind that having your databases secure in multiple locations gives, dbWARE boosts the overall performance of your database and users. More nodes mean more processing and the processing can be located close to users, or 1,000s of miles away, with no noticeable loss of performance for end users

dbWARE for IT Managers

If you are on tight budgets and tighter schedules, but need to build resilient, high availability applications that deliver performance, you will be glad to know that implementing and managing dbWARE is simple. Each node is a 2U rack mountable appliance that can be installed in 5 minutes, anywhere in the world. It looks to all applications and programs like a stand alone database, and the sophisticated real time synchronization mechanisms work behind the scenes to keep your databases current, in synch and viable even across minor or catastrophic system failures.

New Development. Your development staff can focus on your business and use the traditional tools and methods they are familiar with as all programming tools will work with dbWAREin the same way they work with your existing stand-alone database, and without modification

Legacy Apps. Converting legacy applications into state of the art, geographically distributed high performing applications is extremely simple. You do nothing other than install dbWARE appliances where you need them. No coding changes, no complex system administration or tuning.

dbWARE for Developers

dbWARE is a transparent drop in database solution that works with existing code bases, applications and protocols. Whether you develop in C, perl, JDBC or manage 3rd party applications built on top of databases, your applications and programs are aware of no difference between dbWARE and the legacy stand-alone database for which they were developed. The important thing for developers to know is that all of the complex algorithms and communication protocols required to keep multiple databases synchronized have been handled “under the hood”, and no special programming techniques or configurations are required. Your applications and your code interact with dbWARE in the same way as they always have in the past.

But you as a programmer, are aware that every write you send to the database will be replicated to all nodes, whether the nodes are up or down at the time of the write. This greatly simplifies application coding, retry logic, multiple phase commit logic and exception handling. Even though your application is living on a geographicaly replicated multi-homed database, dbWARE takes care of the synchoronization, replication and failover while you focus on developing your custom solution.
