Product innovation and strategic partnerships drive unprecedented user growth
Delivering the future of open source database clusters, Codership announced that 2013 was a record year with over 100,000 downloads of its open source database clustering technology, Galera Cluster.
This achievement is a result of growing adoption within the MySQL user community, boosted by two partner distributions of Galera Cluster: Percona XtraDB and MariaDB Galera Cluster.
The introduction of Galera Cluster 3.0, a milestone which included support for the MySQL database v5.6 as well as for Global Transaction ID (GTID) and WAN, saw Codership take its open source database clustering technology to a new level. Further releases in 2013 strengthened the product and the direction its taking.
This success was recognized earlier this year by two awards:
- Winner of a RedHerring Top 100 Europe Award
- Winner of a MySQL Community Award for Best Application of the Year
