Xeround, the Cloud Database company, today announced that their cloud database for MySQL applications is now available on Joyent Cloud, the public cloud designed for real-time, high-performance applications. Joyent Cloud provides public and private cloud computing software and services to popular Web applications including LinkedIn, Voxer, Gilt Groupe and TaskRabbit.

When signing up for Xeround, users can now choose to create their cloud database on Joyent Cloud's data center. Initially, Xeround offers its Xeround FREE edition on the Joyent Cloud, with additional plans, which would also include Xeround's industry-first auto-scaling capabilities, scheduled to launch in the coming months.

Xeround Cloud Database is the only free relational database offered to Joyent customers, providing zero-management experience and seamless high-availability for MySQL in the cloud -- all in a simple database-as-a-service.

"We are more than pleased to be joining forces with Joyent," said Razi Sharir, CEO of Xeround. "With the same core focuses on scalability and reliability as Joyent, our integration with them takes us further to bringing a simple and truly elastic cloud database to more and more users worldwide."

"At Joyent, our entire focus is on providing customers the performance, scalability, and reliability that their applications demand," said Joyent Cloud General Manager Steve Tuck. "With the help of Xeround, our customers can spend more time differentiating their applications while enjoying the benefits of Xeround's highly-available and zero-maintenance cloud database."
