Constant Contact Chooses SkySQL for MySQL Support
Constant Contact, a provider of marketing services to over 450,000 businesses worldwide, recently announced the selection of SkySQL as its go-to choice for MySQL-related support, software, and other services.
Specializing in online marketing through email, surveys, social media, and more, Constant Contact’s customer base extends all over the globe. With so many customers depending on the company for their online marketing needs, Constant Contact was in need of the proper support to accompany its move towards open source with MySQL. SkySQL was eventually selected for a variety of reasons, and has helped Constant Contact with building and deploying a sturdy MySQL database architecture. In addition, SkySQL has aided Constant Contact with training 10 database administrators over the course of several months to facilitate MySQL adoption.
Dan Berry, Constant Contact’s director of database services, explained the reasoning behind the company’s selection of SkySQL in the official press release: “Embracing open source has been an important move for our company. This company directive means not only finding the right database architecture, but also making sure we have the right support for what we are implementing. Our biggest concern was finding a knowledgeable team that could provide great service at an affordable price. We found SkySQL to be the perfect combination of those qualities.” He added: “We've been very pleased with the customer service and overall responsiveness of SkySQL. Whether it was questions about how to replicate across data centers or suggestions on which other third-party tools might be available to help us, SkySQL made themselves completely available to us.”
SkySQL is an open source company that specializes in MySQL database solutions for both enterprise and cloud environments that stress cost-effectiveness and reliable customer service. Much of the company’s expertise comes from its founders comprised of former MySQL AB executives, personnel, and investors, which has earned SkySQL a trusted reputation amongst its customers worldwide. Headquartered in Helsinki, Finland, SkySQL also operates in North America, Europe, and Asia. By choosing SkySQL for its MySQL support, Constant Contact joins an impressive client list that includes Canal+, ATOS Worldline, and Virgin Mobile, just to name a few.
SkySQL’s director for North America Matt Fredrickson commented on SkySQL’s appeal: “Customers continue to see the value of SkySQL's unique expertise in the MySQL industry. Combining that expertise with an affordable price point has helped our company solidify its position in the MySQL market. We look forward to working with Constant Contact to help them embrace all that open source has to offer.”
