A Close Look at FathomDB, Database as a Service for Cloud Computing

beta_logoFathomDB unveiled on Friday private beta version of its relational database as a service platform for the cloud computing. The service is currently available for mySQL database hosted on Amazon’s EC2 Web Service. But, it has a plan to expand for small cloud based web service in future. The beauty of the service is that it is a managed service that provides backups, monitoring, replication of databases.

FathomDB looks like normal mySQL database. User doesn’t have to worry to figure out the data model into a denormalised form, and existing databases can be easily converted to run FathomDB. It also provides different analytic tool  to know the status of  servers and identify the area where the performance issue exists.
