Deep Closes 2015 with Strong Customer Traction, Top Awards for deepSQL

Industry need for ultra-fast, massively scalable, auto-tuning database drives demand for Deep’s disruptive solution

Boston, MA – January 19, 2016Deep Information Sciences, the company that reimagined MySQL for the on-demand economy, today reported an impressive end to 2015, with strong customer traction, a doubling of staff and multiple industry awards, just eight months after launching deepSQL, the world’s only adaptive database engine. Deep attributes these gains to rapidly increasing demand for feature-rich databases that are massively scalable, high-performant and ultra-flexible – and the inability of any other MySQL-compliant or NoSQL database to meet these needs.

“In a world that’s constantly moving and changing, data-driven insights and cloud-speed operations aren’t just ‘nice-to-haves,’ they’re essential for success. But for most organizations, they’re completely out of reach. Databases are holding businesses back—they’re much too rigid, require a lot of manual tinkering and can’t keep up with today’s incredible and ever-increasing data volume and velocity,” said Les Yetton, CEO of Deep Information Sciences. “That’s why we invented the adaptive database engine and why deepSQL is gaining so much traction. It’s the only database solution that enables businesses to automatically react to changing conditions, easily handle the data tsunami, fully leverage the cloud, and operate at speeds that are orders of magnitude faster than anything previously possible.”

Deep 2015 Highlights

Industry Adoption

Hosting providers, ecommerce companies, research institutions and more, are using deepSQL to accelerate business. For instance, Ruder Boskovic Institute speeds genomic research processes by 400% while slashing the time required to ingest genomes from several days to just four hours. WordPress managed hosting provider, GEMServers, delivers 200% faster page loads and 39 times faster transactions on Google Compute Engine while saving customers up to 20% on hosting package costs. Other companies turbocharging their websites with deepSQL include Aetna, Berghoff, Baycat, Coldwell Banker, GoldMine, LaunchKey, Macjays, and more.

Product Innovations

Deep’s flagship solution, deepSQL, brought to market in April 2015, is the only adaptive, self-tuning database engine. Leveraging Deep’s proprietary computer science and machine learning, and using the MySQL interface businesses know, deepSQL delivers unprecedented speed and flexibility and scales to hundreds of billions of rows in cloud, virtual and physical environments, without requiring application changes or manual DBA intervention.

Deep delivered Docker support for deepSQL, with containerized DeepSQL instances deployable in less than nine seconds.

Deep extended deepSQL to Amazon Web Services, delivering 17x Amazon MySQL RDS performance and 5x Amazon Aurora performance at half the machine cost.

The Community Edition of deepSQL made the solution available at no cost to organizations with less than $1 million in annual revenue.
