The Mission

Simplify Mission-Critical Data

Our Story

YugaByte Team

We are the engineers who developed, scaled and ran operations for the mission-critical Apache HBase platform at Facebook. Previously, we had developed database systems at large enterprise software companies including Oracle and Microsoft. As engineers at both web-scale and enterprise companies, we learned first-hand that developing and operating revenue-generating applications at scale is an increasingly hard problem.

We founded YugaByte in 2016 to simplify the stateful data layer of mission-critical applications. While containers and the associated orchestration tools present an elegant management solution to the stateless layer of such applications, several issues remain when it comes to the stateful layer. Sharded SQL solutions are unfit to operate on elastic cloud infrastructure, NewSQL databases perform poorly under write-heavy workloads, and finally NoSQL databases can easily lose data. To make matters worse, data now needs to live across multiple geographic regions, public cloud platforms as well as on-premises datacenters.

That’s why we built YugaByte DB, a cloud-native database that helps enterprises avoid compromising between strong consistency, multi-datacenter availability and high performance. It converges the operational database needs of mission-critical applications into a cloud-native platform, allowing enterprises to focus on growing their business rather than managing complex data infrastructure.
