I fully agree ...
By Atraveo GmbH
... with the reviews already made.

Atraveo is one of the largest holiday home market in europe and caching is for us a very important, but also difficult point in the business.
We have tested Scalearc's IDB caching now since last year and using it for month in production. The product is more then only caching. The possibillity to do analytics of every single query, gives us a great insight view of what is going on in our database and the traffic to it.
With it we were able to improve not only the performance, but also the design of our database.

But every good product is nothing without the people behind it. The support is great, no ... the way the guys of Scalearc live their support is fantastic. Normally this would be worth more then 5 stars!

Scalearc is providing solutions for your business needs, even beyond their product.

Come for the product, stay for the support.
By Aaron Lee
iDB provides routing and load balancing, caching, and analytics for all your SQL traffic.
These architectural aspects have traditionally been solved with stack-specific technologies. That made apps complex and required their operators to analyze, optimize, and deploy using a variety of disparate tools and error-prone manual labor.

I drove a large iDB deployment at scale in production through most of 2012 (and have continued into '13). We had a tremendously successful outcome, due in no small part to the commitment that Scalearc has to supporting its customers in the field.

The benefits were clear in testing and proven in production:
- Scalability is improved via optimal load balancing and connection pooling.
- Latency/liveness is improved by selective caching.
- Overall performance is improved by analytics-driven app optimization.
- Reliability is improved by runtime health checks and dynamic query routing.

On top of that, Scalearc is one of the most responsive and supportive vendors that I have ever interacted with. I recommend them.

If you are using AWS, you have to have this.
By Kamalika Guha Roy
I'm using AWS for my company (Indiagames Ltd., now a Disney owned company) products since early 2010 and life has been really tough managing AWS, also we could never really leverage the fullest benefits of hosting in cloud until we met ScaleArc guys and have them revamp our hosting architecture in AWS and implement iDB for our Database Servers. Since I have started using ScaleArc iDB, my life has become a lot easier, my applications / products are more stable, I have also learned a lot about AWS technicalities from ScaleArc team. Also ScaleArc iDB support team is really professional, always on-time, responsive, and accurate on analyzing.

A DBA's best friend
By Laine Campbell
We have been using Scalearc in proof of concepts for the last six months, and are wrapping up an implementation in production against RDS now. Scalearc's caching and connection pool are impressive performance improvers, particularly in environments where engineering resources are better utilized for new features. Instrumentation and SQL analytics are invaluable and the failover capabilities are quite significant. We recommend the product quite frequently for rapidly growing clients and those with constrained resources.
