The wave of companies developing next-generation database software has continued to grow in recent years. More established developers such as Couchbase, MariaDB, MongoDB and SingleStore, along with a growing number of young startups like Yugabyte, are competing to break from the pack and position themselves as the alternative to deeply entrenched database products from Oracle and Microsoft.
Cockroach Labs has attracted a lot of attention—and a lot of funding—with its CockroachDB distributed SQL database that’s designed to handle workloads with huge volumes of transactional data. The database is also the foundation for Cockroach Cloud, the company’s popular Database as a Service that launched in 2019.
Having raised a total of $633 million since its 2015 founding, the startup’s market valuation now stands at $5 billion.
