Stratoscale Buys Tesora, Accelerating Database Shift to Cloud 

The merger of database services with cloud and other datacenter infrastructure continues to accelerate with the latest acquisition of a database-as-a-service vendor by the Israeli cloud infrastructure provider Stratoscale.

Stratoscale, Herzliya, Israel, specializes in delivering Amazon Web Services (NASDAQ: AMZN) regional connections to datacenters. The company said Monday (Feb. 6) its acquisition of Tesora Inc., a privately held database service vendor based in Cambridge, Mass., would boost its efforts to deliver public cloud connections on-premise while addressing growing demand for managed noSQL and Amazon relational database services.

Stratoscale also plans to add compatible services including DynamoDB, ElasticCache and Amazon Redshift hosted data warehouse services. The Tesora database platform is designed to provision and manage databases ranging from MySQL and MongoDB to MariaDB and PostgresSQL.

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
