Introducing the New Continuent Tungsten Startup Pricing for MySQL HA / DR / Geo-Scale

$3 trillion! That is the value created by the global startup economy according to the Global Startup Ecosystem Report 2020 published by the Startup Genome: “a figure on par with the GDP of a G7 economy”.

That same report discusses the post-COVID-19 crisis and the impact on global ecosystems with a crunch for capital across the world as well as about 72% of startups that saw their revenue drop since the beginning of the crisis.

For technology startups in particular that can see fast spikes of user growth, it is important to have a database infrastructure that can easily scale and support that kind of acceleration … and last. MySQL being an obvious choice as the open source database that is still the most popular and most widely used for online business worldwide. In a global economy, it is important to be available 24/7 regardless of where the users are, which means a database infrastructure that is not just highly available, but also designed to hold when disaster strikes … geographic distribution playing a key role.

There are only so many geo-scale MySQL HA / DR solutions out there, and of course, they tend to come with quite the price tag, which makes investment decisions difficult for startups, especially in these difficult times.
