Membrain is flash-optimized software cache and persistent NoSQL data store, 100% compatible with the widely-used memcached API.
A software cache is often used, standalone or in front of a database, to increase application performance. Memcached is the most widely-used software cache, powering many high-volume web sites. But traditional memcached has a dark side. The need to keep your data in DRAM to get great performance can lead to excessive sharding, across many servers that are inefficiently utilized.
Membrain is Schooner’s massively multi-threaded implementation of memcached, optimized to exploit flash memory. Membrain delivers 10x server consolidation, greatly simplifying your datacenter scaleout for capacity and performance. Membrain also delivers persistence, for use as a highly-efficient NoSQL data store, and enterprise-grade synchronous replication and immediate failover.

SchoonerSQL is a SQL database delivering 99.999% availability, great performance, and the lowest total cost of ownership of any SQL solution. It’s 100% compatible with the widely-used MySQL and its standard InnoDB storage engine.
SchoonerSQL goes far beyond traditional MySQL to include multi-threaded synchronous and asynchronous replication deeply integrated into InnoDB. SchoonerSQL can guarantee no lost or stale data, and provides immediate automated failover and recovery across LAN or WAN. SchoonerSQL offers better performance with replication than any other MySQL distribution whether the database is stored on hard drives, SAN, or flash memory (SSDs).
Schooner MySQL fully exploits flash memory to provide an easy growth path to larger masters and/or top performance with minimum datacenter power consumption. SchonerSQL radically simplifies cluster administration, making day-to-day work much easier for DBAs and datacenter managers.
