                              Analysis of Elastra, a vendor of cloud computing software and services initially focused on the database market. Related subjects include:

                              Elastra sinks into the dead pool

                              Elastra is an ex-company. I’m not surprised, except by the fact that it took so long.

                              Some Elastra numbers

                              GigaOm reports that Elastra just raised $12 million, and that it has 40 paying customers, up from 13 around the time of Elastra’s March launch.

                              Elastra launched today

                              At Elastra’s request, I didn’t write further about them back when I was interested in doing so. But you can go find out about them yourself. Basically, their secret sauce is that they write deployment instructions in a few hundred lines of two proprietary markup languages. They have ambitions beyond DBMS, and beyond the Amazon cloud.

                              According to their slides, they have 13 paying customers.

                              EnterpriseDB on Elastra, early stages

                              I finally caught up with Bob Zurek about EnterpriseDB’s foray into the Elastra cloud. Here are some highlights:

                              EnterpriseDB joins Elastra in the Amazon cloud

                              When Elastra announced their service to host MySQL and PostgreSQL in the Amazon S3/EC2 cloud, I immediately told my dear darling clients at EnterpriseDB they should do the same. Whereupon they told me it would happen soon. However, they neglected to tell me when it was actually announced. So I know no more than can be found in this Computerworld article.

                              But I’ll say this — it’s a very tempting option, both for new web-based applications or businesses, or simply as a development platform pending later redeployment.

                              Elastra – somewhat more sensible Amazon-based DBMS option

                              Elastra is a startup offering MySQL and PostgreSQL SaaS instances in the Amazon S3/EC2 cloud. On their board is John Hummer, which I generally regard as a good thing, although it’s hardly a guarantee of success.* High Scalability raises some doubts about Elastra’s pricing, but I think that may be missing the point.
