Onomi secure significant funding to build a next generation Database as a Service.
Nottingham, 5th November 2015 – Onomi, a leading independent database services specialist, has announced that it’s been awarded significant funding through the Invest To Grow Programme, as managed by the University of Derby.
The services provided by Onomi help companies manage their database technologies more effectively by reducing costs and the maintenance overhead. To provide even greater efficiencies and to further enhance service levels, Onomi have recently been awarded significant investment via the Invest To Grow Programme to help develop a next generation Database as a Service (DBaaS). The new platform will provide customers with a choice of database technologies and will operate on both public and private environments.
Julian Boneham, Onomi Director, said “We’re supporting critical databases for customers across Europe and they all have an ever increasing need for more hassle free and streamlined services. The “AutOnomi” project will allow our customers to utilise complex database technologies on their own infrastructure or the cloud through a simple “Amazon style” experience. The customer can “consume” a range of database technologies as a service without the need to employ internal Database Administrators.
The Invest To Grow Programme is designed to support businesses and to help them innovate. David Harper, Head of Strategic Programmes for the University of Derby, commented “The Invest To Grow funding has been awarded to Onomi in recognition of their ability create a market leading support service in this growth sector of Database Managed Services. The funding will stimulate further job creation within Nottingham and help to develop a leading edge technology solution”.
With many organisations now having to manage complex database environments, the cost of maintaining these systems coupled with difficulty in finding the right level of technical expertise is ever increasing.
Andrew Slater, Onomi Director, said “We are seeing customers having to juggle the management of multiple databases technologies, across different infrastructure platforms. Our aim is to remove the technical complexity from the customer and allow them to use the right tools for the job without having to worry about the day to day management overhead. The Invest To Grow funding is helping us achieve a truly market leading solution whilst accelerating our business growth.”
