Savvis, a provider of cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions for enterprises, announced the availability of Savvis Symphony Database, a cloud-based database platform, in Europe.
According to a release, Symphony Database, which Savvis unveiled in October 2011 in North America, brings the advantages of cloud computing to Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server environments without long-term licensing or server provisioning.
"Savvis clients choose Symphony Database because of its quick availability, pay-as-you-go model and instant scalability translates into reduced database expenses and complexity," said Neil Cresswell, EMEA managing director at Savvis. "We bring Savvis' mission-critical expertise to the Symphony Database, providing performance levels and availability on par with your traditional data center."
The company said users can select from Oracle Enterprise 11G RAC or Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 for the underlying technology. The service is available to European clients through Savvis' U.K. data centre in Slough.
