Software Description:

Provides application developers SQL analytics and performance with ZERO application changes. Deployment requires no changes to your existing database infrastructure.
• Do you use a cache today (e.g. Redis, Memcache)? We directly interface into grid-caches for you, and give recommendations on what you SHOULD cache. This saves a lot of development and configuration mistakes. "One-click" the queries you want to cache, and you're done! Pretty cool?
• Automated database failover: It's better than the AWS failover; we are application-aware and will not drop the connection. No more spending development on a failover solution (e.g. MySQL, Postgres PGpool). We also support Read/Write splits.
