Heimdall for Cloud

 

With the current trend of migrating applications and databases into the cloud, there will be a growing concern of reliability and performance bottlenecks. This is primarily caused by application-to-database latency from being geographically dispersed.

Heimdall Data is a must for cloud application deployments. Heimdall is installed as software on the application instances, offloading the database; and providing failover, increased performance, and performance visibility to insure application resiliency. Unlike competitive solutions, Heimdall Data optimizes SQL from at application tier eliminating latency.

Heimdall Data’s deployment architecture provides several benefits:

• Improved application-database response times
• Reduced management complexity: Failures are easily diagnosed and resolved without any availability inconsistency.
• Improved visibility: Heimdall Data provides an application-centric view of the responsiveness of the databases, allowing for SLA tracking and performance alerts to be generated.

Cloud infrastructures enhance companies to scale their applications, but only if the proper strategy is put in place. Heimdall Data was architected to address the needs of the cloud.
