What YugabyteDB Users Have to Say

Guy Chiarello, COO
We are expected to perfect—no false positives, all good transactions. Getting to 100 percent accuracy is very important. How am I going to do that without you? I could build my own database, but that’s not the answer. I’d rather have really smart people—like the team at Yugabyte—do that instead of me.
Tony Coleman, CTO
Yugabyte brings exceptional technology performance, scale, and resilience to our partnership. Along with its unrivaled global database expertise and its service capabilities, YugabyteDB was a natural fit with our vision for the future of our technology cloud based proposition.
Ram Ravichandran, CTO
YugabyteDB helped Narvar avoid cloud lock-in, stay GDPR compliant and save money in the process. Partnering with Yugabyte helps us focus on our customers instead of worrying if our systems can keep pace with our rapidly growing business.
James Hartig, Co-Founder
We evaluated CockroachDB, but decided to go with YugabyteDB because we got 3x better performance with fewer resources, while avoiding the significant hiccups in latency we saw with CockroachDB.
Vijay Patil, VP of Engineering
With YugabyteDB, we can now do on-demand seamless cluster expansion during business hours, execute online schema changes without business disruptions, and use real-time-monitoring-enabled SREs to make proactive, metrics-driven business decisions.
Nikhil Mahawar, Head of Product Engineering and Innovation
We have moved our payments system to YugabyteDB’s distributed SQL database to deliver the scale and enable the active-active setups required for critical applications like UPI. —Nikhil Mahawar, Head of Product Engineering and Innovation, Mindgate
Jay Duraisamy, SVP of Technology for Data and Analytics
YugabyteDB presents a solution with both PostgreSQL grammar and Cassandra grammar as well as being fully ACID compliant. It seems to be the next evolution of NoSQL architecture.
Leading eCommerce Retailer
Director of Digital Engineering and Architecture
We are in the process of modernizing our core e-commerce platform, including workloads such as promotions engine, catalog, customer accounts, registries, and card and checkout to a cloud-based microservices architecture. We chose YugabyteDB as the database for all these workloads.
