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 and Dell Technologies Capital.
