Reimagine the Relational Database

YugabyteDB combines enterprise-grade relational database capabilities with built-in resilience and on-demand scaling, resulting in a modern database delivered as a flexible service. In other words, YugabyteDB retains the power and familiarity of PostgreSQL while evolving its capabilities to a distributed, cloud native architecture.

Accelerate Productivity
Reduce Cost
Low Risk

Why Another Database?

You build apps differently today. You deploy apps differently. But if you are still using the same old monolithic databases, then you probably struggle with lower developer productivity, higher operational costs and elevated organization risk. It’s time you fully embrace the cloud native world with a modern, distributed database.

Legacy Relational DB
Strong consistency
ACID transactions
Relational data model
Manual sharding
Bolt-on replication
No geo-distribution
Non-relational DB
Horizontal scalability
Native replication
No ACID consistency
No indexes
No relational model
Cloud DB
Ease of use
Cloud lock-in
Not open source
Limited geo-distribution

Top Use Cases for YugabyteDB

Database Modernization
Legacy databases were not designed for modern, cloud native apps. It's time to boost your productivity with a modern, distributed data layer, which combines relational data modeling and powerful RDBMS capabilities with the resilience, scale, and geo-distribution of cloud native databases.
Database Modernization
Cloud Native Applications
Cloud native apps demand a highly scalable and resilient architecture. YugabyteDB is designed to run anywhere, scale rapidly across distributed clusters, and withstand hardware and cloud failures—exactly what you want when developing Kubernetes and microservice-based applications.
Cloud Native Applications
Edge and Streaming
Streaming apps collect data from the edge and aggregate them in the cloud, but that doesn’t mean we need to return to a world of IT silos. YugabyteDB is a versatile cloud native database built for the heterogenous, hybrid environments powering your edge and streaming applications around the world.
