Tech Mahindra and Robin Systems Join Forces to Introduce DBMaaS for Cost Effective, End-to-End, Data Infrastructure Management

DBMaaS Speeds Delivery of a Wide-Range of Applications and Services in Today’s Highly Dynamic Enterprise Data Center

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Oct, 04 2017 — Robin Systems, a company that is transforming the enterprise with its innovative Robin Platform, and Tech Mahindra today announced a new joint solution, DBMaaS (Database Management as-a-Service), for end-to-end, data infrastructure management.

Using DBMaaS allows IT operations and Dev/Ops teams to ensure consistency and predictable performance and, at the same time, gain the flexibility to quickly adapt to the on-demand realities of today’s modern Database as a Service (DBaaS) infrastructures.

DBMaaS, a unique joint offering from Robin Systems and Tech Mahindra, enables Dev/Ops and IT operations to take advantage of an enterprise data center that can run better, change more rapidly, and scale in a much more cost-effective and efficient way. This new data infrastructure management solution brings to enterprises and service providers the benefits of container-based application virtualization along with a managed service wrap.

“DBMaaS drives IT efficiency, simplifying database lifecycle management and making infrastructure management, as a whole, completely invisible to IT Ops,” said Premal Buch, CEO of Robin Systems. “Working with Tech Mahindra enables us to bring even greater productivity to today’s large enterprises. We are very excited to enter into this relationship with Tech Mahindra to serve our joint customers.”

Said Raman Abrol, Strategic Business Head Americas CME , “DBMaaS brings an innovative, POC-driven and phased approach to data infrastructure management. This offering aligns with our Run- better, Change- faster & Grow- greater strategy to bring continued value to our customers. We are delighted to join Robin Systems in helping production environments and enterprise data centers increase productivity, performance and scalability via DBMaaS. Using Robin’s container-based virtualization technology to deliver this solution via a Database as a Service model, DBMaaS will allow operators to quickly create and deliver a wide-range of services to the enterprise.”

More About Tech Mahindra

Databases in production environments tend to be performance sensitive and rely on consistent and predictable performance from their underlying infrastructure. Virtualization, despite its wide adoption and various benefits, has limited penetration in production environment due to the hypervisor overhead and its inability to guarantee SLAs. Consequently, these databases are deployed on bare metal servers in production – leading to sprawl, low hardware utilizations, over-provisioning for peak demand, and poor isolation.

Though some development environments leverage the benefits of virtualization, IT managers would like to consolidate and achieve bare-metal-like performance, while retaining benefits of virtualization, all from the same management layer and at a significant cost saving for their entire database estate.

Tech Mahindra with two decades of expertise in B2B domain is aptly geared to utilize Robin’s technology and create a platform that will enable their customers to build a private cloud service that not only provides the benefits of virtualization but also helps them to consolidate their environments.  Some of the benefits that DBMaaS provides are

  • Ready to deploy out-of-the-box solution
  • Inbuilt managed service wrap with subscription-based or pay-as-you-go pricing model
  • POC driven phased model for adoption
  • Database-as-a-service platform, Managed Migration and Rollout Platform
  • Strong ecosystem, service management, and support
  • Guaranteed YoY savings through transformational service delivery approach including asset monetization
