DBVu is a service that monitors MySQL databases and provides easy to understand analytics which can be understood by technical users and management. If issue are found, DBVu provides helpful advice on how to fix them before they become problems.
The customer installs a thin client (open source) that DBVu provides and installs on a public facing web server, DBVu then poll the client, which establishes an SSL connection back to DBVu. All configuration data is held centrally by DBVu (ensuring security on the client). Also as new features are added no client changes are necessary.
Based on a freemium model, anyone can sign-up and get 30 days of full service, but if they don’t pay within the free period, then the polling will be reduced and they’ll lose access to drill-down info (and help).
DBVu is also in discussion with consultancies so that if customers have problems which they cant fix, then they can request help through the site. As DBVu allows a customer to grant (read) access to their data to a 3rd party, the consultancy can be made aware of the issues without having to go on-site and having to work out what’s wrong.
