    14. 14. Stratus – Our pre-configured OLTP database appliance saves you money and time for any new deployment Stratus is a series of highly customizable, plug-n-play transactional database server products for specific database operations with a ground-breaking performance. They will be available in a choice of SUN/HP/DELL blade servers and will host MySQL or PostgreSQL DB on Unix/Linux/Windows platform. Typically a stratus can be plugged into your network and thats about it. Your database is ready for use. Stratus comprises of a hardware configuration highly optimized for a specific need, a very minimal operating system wherein features and configuration of the operating system are dictated by the special purpose database server and supporting components, a preconfigured database server, preloaded with configuration data to serve a specific enterprise application.
    15. 15. Cumulus – Our OLAP data warehouse system is pre-configured for superior performance Cumulus is an efficient BI solution built on Column-oriented database architecture, aggressive use of data compression and high concurrency models that delivers packaged BI solutions with a ground breaking performance and real-time access to data. Cumullus uses massively parallel processing (MPP) architectures to provide high query performance and platform scalability. MPP architectures consist of independent processors or servers executing in parallel. Most MPP architectures implement a “shared nothing architecture” where each server is self-sufficient and controls its own memory and disk. Shared nothing architectures have a proven record for high scalability and little contention. Cumullus appliances distribute data onto dedicated disk storage units connected to each server in the appliance. This distribution allows DW appliances to resolve a relational query by scanning data on each server in parallel. The divide-and-conquer approach delivers high performance and scales linearly as new servers are added into the architecture.
    16. 16. Professional Services To help companies leverage a cloud computing model to enable their business and IT strategies, Cirrus DB is committed to assisting these customers to quickly design, deploy and manage cloud computing solutions to meet their needs.

    17. 17. Competitive Advantage <ul><li>Integration of Cloud Services </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Our Cirrus Enterprise Manager (CEM) product truly integrates most of the leading cloud service providers in the market so that our customers can choose all the required service from one dashboard. We clearly have an edge here as nobody else in the cloud space is doing this right now. . </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Scale-out technology </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Scale-Out is a modern computing architecture that enables organizations to improve application performance and scalability on an incremental, as-needed basis by adding multiple replicated database servers on low-cost commodity hardware. This is in contrast to a Scale-Up approach, which requires organizations to make a large up-front investment in more expensive and complex server hardware and database licenses in order to add capacity. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In the online world, many of the largest and fastest-growing companies use MySQL to cost-effectively Scale-Out their successful businesses, saving millions of dollars over high-cost proprietary technology — including Google, Yahoo, craigslist, Ticketmaster, Wikipedia, YouTube, and Evite/Citysearch. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Virtualization </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Our Data virtualization allows users to access various sources of disparately located data without knowing or caring where the data actually resides. Database virtualization allows the use of multiple instances of a DBMS, or different DBMS platforms, simultaneously and in a transparent fashion regardless of their physical location. These practices are often employed in data mining and data warehousing systems. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Clustering </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Clustering is a technology that enables clustering of in-memory databases in a shared-nothing system. The shared-nothing architecture allows the system to work with very inexpensive hardware, and without any specific requirements on hardware or software. It also does not have any single point of failure because each component has its own memory and disk. </li></ul></ul>
