ScaleArc is the pioneer in a new category of database infrastructure software that simplifies the way database environments are deployed and managed, and lowers costs without any changes to applications or databases.

The ScaleArc iDB software abstracts database servers from application servers to provide instant horizontal scaling and connection management, and enables real-time visibility into every query to provide real-time analytics and instant troubleshooting, one-click query caching, wire-speed security enforcement, and much more.

Until now, achieving such capabilities required significant investment in engineering resources and ongoing maintenance with too many single-purpose solutions from multiple sources that require constant changes to applications, as well as individual management and upkeep.

iDB is the only solution that reduces overall CAPEX and OPEX costs by up to 50% and delivers instant performance improvements of up to 24x with no disruptions to existing environments.
