For users of OpenStack, data storage is a critical need. Trove is quickly evolving to meet these needs. OpenStack has a coordinated six month release schedule, and Trove has followed the typical path of starting in incubation in April of 2013 and will become an integrated project as part of the OpenStack Icehouse release in April of 2014. What started with the initial ability to provision MySQL instances is expanding into a true multi-tenant, polyglot persistent database as a service platform.

Trove is so much more than just MySQL as a service. Users of OpenStack often find that they need the ability to provision and manage multiple DBMS, and in the near future, we plan to provide clustering support for MySQL, MongoDB and Cassandra, in addition to many other features.

For those who are interested in learning more about Trove, how people are using Trove today, and the Trove roadmap, please join Michael Basnight, the technical lead (PTL) of Trove on a webinar on March 27th. Register now
