Our database proxy improves SQL scale and reduce costs up to 50%
Deployment requires no code changes; support for any SQL database
Read/Write Split with Strong Consistency
The Heimdall proxy intelligently routes queries to the appropriate database instances without code changes. We load balance across replicas for better utilization. Users receive the most up-to-date data with our replication lag detection.
- Connection Pooling: Multiple client connections are associated to a database connection. Users can limit connections to the backend in 2-tiers: per user and per database.
- Connection Multiplexing: An extension of pooling, multiplexing creates a backend connection for active queries. The net result is lower total memory, and reduced database costs.

Automated Persistent Connection Failover
Our proxy detects database health and performs a failover to the standby from an application approach. Upon a failure, we queue up the connection and transparently creates a new connection at the backend to the standby instance. This greatly reduces and/or eliminates application errors and exceptions. Hence, failover is transparent to the application and user; not so, with a DNS or IP based failover solution.
