Bringing Agility To The Global Enterprise

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 learnt first-hand that developing and operating revenue-generating global applications at scale is an increasingly hard problem.

We founded YugaByte to simplify the stateful data layer of geo-distributed, mission-critical applications. While containers and the associated orchestration tools present a potential solution to the stateless layer of such applications, several issues remain when it comes to the stateful layer. On one hand, sharded SQL solutions are unfit to operate on elastic cloud infrastructure that depends on an inherently unreliable public Internet. On the other hand, NewSQL databases perform poorly under write-heavy workloads. And finally, NoSQL databases can easily lose data.

That’s why we built YugaByte DB, an open source, cloud-native database that powers enterprise applications with transactional consistency, high performance and multi-region scalability, all at the same time. Enterprises should be able to focus on growing their business across the globe rather than spend precious resources managing complex data infrastructure.
