Our Story

We founded Yugabyte after developing business-critical databases at Facebook & Oracle.

Experts from Google, Microsoft & Nutanix have since joined to help us realize our vision for YugabyteDB, an open source, cloud native, distributed SQL database. Powered by a high-performance, globally-distributed document store that is built ground-up with inspiration from Google Spanner, YugabyteDB aims to make applications agile like never before.

Yugabyte is headquartered in Sunnyvale, CA, and backed by Lightspeed Venture Partners, Dell Technologies Capital, 8VC, and Wipro Ventures.
