OblakSoft is pleased to announce general availability of the Cloud Storage Engine for MySQL (ClouSE) version 1.0. Whether you want to use ready-to-run WordPress for Amazon Cloud / Google Cloud, configure your own WordPress installation with WP2Cloud plugin, or use ClouSE to deploy your own applications, ClouSE lets you tap the power of cloud storage to store your data extremely durably and make serving the content highly scalable.
We would like to thank more than 2,000 registered Beta users and early adopters who helped us to deliver a compelling feature set with outstanding quality. After months of rigorous Beta testing and live production use (e.g. www.ecoustics.com has been running on ClouSE for more than a year) we believe that the product is ready for commercial use.
To get to generally available version 1.0 from the Beta we’ve implemented a couple of major features: (more…)
OblakSoft is pleased to announce the release of ClouSE Beta version 1.0b.1.8. This is a minor maintenance release that addresses a couple pain points, while we’re working on a release candidate that will bring the built-in point-in-time recovery and other major features.

OblakSoft is pleased to announce the release of ClouSE version 1.0b.1.6. In this release we fixed some of the known ClouSE Beta limitations as well as performance and functional bugs reported by our users.
Here is the summary of changes that are included into 1.0b.1.6:
OblakSoft is pleased to announce that the Cloud Storage Engine for MySQL (ClouSE) now supports Google Cloud Storage. Using MySQL to store data directly in Google Cloud Storage becomes a simple deployment choice: pick your Google Cloud Storage bucket and migrate any or all of your tables to the cloud. We would like to thank Google storage team for their support and contributions.
This functionality opens Google Cloud Storage to millions of MySQL-based applications – cloud storage becomes a better alternative to local storage, no matter where you host the application, on premise or in the cloud. Applications can now store data on Google’s infrastructure, and enjoy high availability, high durability and high scalability of Google Cloud Storage.
OblakSoft is pleased to announce the release of ClouSE version 1.0b.1.4. In this release we fixed some of the known ClouSE Beta limitations that required workarounds in some configurations.
In particular, now the popular BuddyPress WordPress plugin can store its tables in ClouSE without a patch that worked around the missing features. If you’re using the patched version of BuddyPress 1.6.1 provided by us, you can now upgrade ClouSE and use the original BuddyPress sources. Thank you for your patience and commitment!
Here is the summary of changes:
OblakSoft recommends upgrading ClouSE to the latest version 1.0b.1.3 that fixes an issue with some SELECT statements. Previously some SELECT statements (e.g. using index_merge w/intersect query execution plans) may mistakenly miss records.
OblakSoft is also pleased to announce that 64-bit AMI of WordPress on S3 / Yapixx is now available. We’ve got requests from customers who’d like to use the AMI in production, but didn’t want to run a 32-bit AMI, and had to build their own 64-bit AMI using our AMI as a reference. Now they can use our standard fully configured ready-to-run 64-bit AMI directly as a starting platform for their WordPress on S3 production websites.
The software can be downloaded at http://www.oblaksoft.com/downloads/ for FREE.
The release notes are available here.
OblakSoft is pleased to announce the release of ClouSE version 1.0b.1.2 and WordPress on S3 / Yapixx refresh.
This release addresses performances and usability issues reported by our early adopters. Thank you all for your feedback.
Now ClouSE supports MySQL thru 5.5.25. To keep the distribution small, we don’t build binaries for MySQL prior to 5.5.14 anymore. If you need one, please contact us.
Now the content type for Weblobs is set based on their name. Previously, the content type for all Weblobs was set to application/octet-stream, which could lead to undesirable Web Browser behavior when the Weblob was downloaded from Amazon S3 directly. For example, an image file could be downloaded to disk instead of showing in the browser.
While Yapixx stands for Yet Another Picture Sharing Site, it is actually one of a kind. Yapixx is WordPress that was moved to run on top of Amazon S3 storage without changing a line of code in the WordPress core engine.
OblakSoft is pleased to announce the release of ClouSE version 1.0b.1.0. This release addresses reliability and performance issues that were encountered by our early adopters, as well as it provides new functionality to better align with real life usage scenarios.
Thank you all for your feedback! (more…)
