PORTLAND, OR, March 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Orchestrate (Orchestrate.io), the only data API to offer the best of NoSQL in a developer-friendly service,  has been enlisted by Rovio Entertainment Ltd, the maker of Angry Birds, to rapidly add new features to its mobile games platform. In its first integration, Orchestrate allowed Rovio to easily prototype a critical new search feature within hours without having to provision a new database.

According to 451 Research, database-as-a-service (DBaaS) adoption in enterprise IT will grow significantly over the next two years, at a CAGR of 86%, to $1.8B by 2016, and will further drive the growth of NoSQL database revenue. Finland-based Rovio has been an early champion for NoSQL and cloud computing. In order to support rapid prototyping and development, Rovio chose Orchestrate' DBaaS for its flexible, easy-to-use data model and simple integration into its existing cloud stack.

"Orchestrate's solution made it possible to prototype new ideas and features in record time, for example allowing for quick searches over Rovio Accounts user names for blacklisted terms such as obscenities and trademarks," said Juhani Honkala, SVP, Head of Skynest at Rovio. "New services like Orchestrate can drastically change enterprise infrastructure by removing unnecessary barriers to product development, and opening new possibilities in app functionality by freeing data from their respective silos."

"Rovio has been a pioneer in enterprise cloud adoption since day one, and has a long track record of embracing cutting edge technologies," said Antony Falco, CEO and Co-Founder of Orchestrate. "Rovio is a great example of how enterprise IT can benefit from Orchestrate's service and easily integrate our API with the rest of their stack."

Orchestrate empowers developers to store and query full-text search, graph, event and key/value application data without the cost and complexity of running NoSQL databases themselves, so they can focus on features and usability instead. It's free to use for up to one million operations per month (MOps). To learn more, or to start building an application today, visit the Orchestrate website and sign up.
