MySQL Gets Telecom-Specific
Due to demand, MySQL AB announced the expansion of its telecom-specific services and consulting for MySQL software. Specifically, the company is promoting its MySQL Cluster, a high-end version of the standard database designed for fault-tolerant, mission-critical network and telecommunications applications at carrier-grade.
The MySQL Server and MySQL Cluster are used for a range of networking and telecommunications applications, including those for enterprise network management, Home Location Registry (HLR), and Voice over IP (VoIP).
“As the telecom and networking markets are converging, companies are being forced to operate more efficiently and increase customer satisfaction,” said Ulf Sandberg, MySQL AB’s vice-president of worldwide services.
The company has added MySQL Cluster Jumpstart Packaged Consulting for advice in methodologies and expertise in database clustering, replication, fail-over, fault-tolerance and other high availability techniques to “jumpstart” telecommunications database projects.
There is also Custom Telecom Consulting for large telecommunications projects or those with company-specific requirements to successfully implement MySQL and MySQL Cluster-based projects, including on-site projects. Also offered is MySQL Certified Support, a 24-hour customer service contact.
The company is rounding out the last month of its Call for Participants for the 2007 MySQL Conference & Expo, slated for April 2007. The call ends November 7.
