Tesora organizing first conference of the Trove community to expand knowledge and promote usage of open source database as a service platform.

CAMBRIDGE, MASS., August 7, 2014 -- IT and business line managers, developers and anyone interested in learning more about how to contribute to, build and deploy the OpenStack Trove database as a service project can participate in OpenStack Trove Day, August 19, 2014 in Cambridge, Mass.

The day will feature an overview of the Trove project, practical advice on managing both relational and NoSQL databases on Trove platform and real-world discussions of Trove in use at companies including eBay and HP. The day will also touch on other data related topics in OpenStack including the use of Hadoop on OpenStack and a panel discussion of data management in Amazon, OpenStack and traditional IT environments. There will also be a talk on OpenStack from an investor’s perspective.

Trove is the open source, community-developed database as a service (DBaaS) component of the OpenStack cloud platform. DBaaS is a way for IT managers within large enterprises and cloud service providers to offer on-demand, self-service database capabilities to people within their organization. This enables IT workers and business managers to create databases on an OpenStack cloud instance without database management experience.

“After four years, OpenStack is firmly established as the leading enterprise-ready cloud platform and there is now a clear need and desire in the market for offering database as a service on private clouds,” said Ken Rugg, CEO and founder of Tesora. “We’re thrilled to be hosting the very first OpenStack Trove Day as a forum for the community to come together to learn and discuss what is real now and what is possible for DBaaS on OpenStack.”
