From the Cooperation of these two companies arises the biggest independent service provider for MySQL and MariaDB in Europe.

Hamburg, Uster -- February 28, 2011 - The Hamburg based PrimeBase Technologies and the near Zürich located FromDual are forming a Cooperation for MySQL products and services, starting March 1st, 2011.

This Cooperation enables both companies to offer a complete set of services for all MySQL and MariaDB customers.

The customers of both parties now have he possibility to demand a 24x7 support service from their provider.

Companies, which use MySQL, often do not have the capability to operate the product themselves, because they do not have sufficiently trained MySQL staff.

The Remote-DBA offer meets exactly this need: Customers then have the possibility to let their databases be operated by a MySQL specialist.

In addition, the set of services offers MySQL Health Checks on a regular basis or an Emergency intervention in case of an incident.

The whole package is built modularly and there is no obligation to pay license fees or to purchase service that one does not need.

FromDual releases its new version v0.5 of its MySQL Performance Monitor working with Zabbix.

What has changed so far in this release:

  • Recommended Location has changed to /usr/local
  • FromDual agent log files are rotated now.
  • There are now 2 different packages: One for the Agent and one for the Templates.
  • Some of the graphs were improved.
  • Missing status and system variable information were added and some were fixed.
  • Verbosity of logging information was adjusted.
  • A module for monitoring additional informations for Linux servers was added.
  • Agent caches now the data if it has no access to server. This gives the possibility to run the agent without an installed Zabbix Server and load the data later on off-site.
  • Start/stop scripts for running Zabbix agent and server under the mysql user were added.
  • Status information for the Aria Storage Engine were added.

The MySQL Performance Monitor is free of costs and the modules are offered under GPL.

You can get it from our download page.
