The Rackspace Cloud, Rackspace Hosting’s cloud computing unit, has added FathomDB, a MySQL-based Database-as-a-Service (DaaS) start-up, to its ecosystem.
FathomDB is now built on Rackspace Cloud’s standards-based API.
FathomDB claims to have helped start the DaaS industry by offering an interactive user interface and analytics engine to support relational databases in the cloud initially on EC2 and S3.
The service is supposed to be a time-saver by providing automated backups, routine maintenance, analytic tools, real-time monitoring and performance graphs for optimizing code and easy point-and-click configuration.
Developers can run databases on FathomDB and the Rackspace Cloud starting at two cents an hour. Pricing varies by server size and disk space. It can run to $1.20 for a 16GB server with 640GB of disk.
FathomDB was seeded by Y! Combinator.
