Stratoscale Acquires DBaaS Company Tesora
Cloud infrastructure company Stratoscale has acquired Tesora, a database-as-a-service provider based in Cambridge, Mass. The terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
Based in Israel, software-defined data center solution provider Stratoscale delivers what it calls an on-premise AWS region – essentially enabling companies to build an AWS compatible cloud infrastructure in their own data center. The acquisition of Tesora will help it deliver database services for an on-prem AWS region.
The Tesora DBaaS platform offers secure cloud access to 17 popular databases through a single interface. Stratoscale says Tesora will address market demand for managed noSQL, RDS, and adding DynamoDB, ElasticCache and Redshift compatible services.
The cloud database and database as a service (DBaaS) market is expected to be worth $14.05 billion by 2019, according to recent research by MarketsandMarkets.
“This acquisition is an important milestone in Stratoscale’s ability to help customers on their journey to the cloud,” Ariel Maislos, CEO and founder of Stratoscale said in a statement. “Organizations want to consume database as a service in a click-of-a-button. Stratoscale is happy to bring Tesora onboard to make this a reality.”
Also on Monday, Stratoscale has announced the availability of a fully-managed and AWS-compatible relational database service (RDS).
The acquisition of Tesora comes weeks after Stratoscale launched the latest version of its software-defined data center solution, Stratoscale Symphony 3.2 which offers 87 new features and bug fixes. Stratoscale Symphony gives clients the ability to create an on-prem private or public cloud within their own data center and using standard hardware.
Stratoscale has a channel partner program, called PartnerFirst, where it works with resellers, integrators and distributors to deliver its software across North America and Europe. The acquisition of Tesora will likely bring more DBaaS opportunities to its partner network.
Stratoscale closed $27 million in Series C funding last year, led by Qualcomm, bringing its total funding to over $70 million.
