Globally Distributed Applications

YugaByte DB is the open source, transactional, high-performance database for building internet-scale, globally-distributed apps.
Examples of Globally Distributed Applications
Software-as-a-Service

Run SaaS applications in any cloud across multiple geographic regions with extreme ease. Go global when you want, not when your data infrastructure is ready.

Identity Management

Build reliable identity services at global scale without manually integrating multiple databases. Power critical APIs such as login and update password without any complex app logic.

Retail & E-Commerce

Delight customers with consistent product catalogs. Increase sales with real-time user personalization. Keep infrastructure costs low through dynamic scaling.
