The 10 Coolest Big Data Platforms And Tools Of 2020 (So Far)

Rick Whiting

As big data volumes explode, demand grows for database, data management and business analytics technologies for deriving value from that data. Here are 10 cool big data platforms and tools that have debuted so far this year.

PlanetScaleDB

In March, startup PlanetScale launched a multi-cloud version of its PlanetScaleDB, a cloud-native Database-as-a-Service. PlanetScaleDB is built on MySQL, the Kubernetes container platform and Vitess, an open-source database clustering system for deploying and managing large clusters of SQL database instances.

The multi-cloud PlanetScaleDB is designed to help businesses and organizations deploy, run and manage databases that span multiple cloud platforms simultaneously. That allows businesses to continue to serve data through a secondary cloud service provider should the primary cloud provider system fail.

The company also announced in March that PlanetScaleDB supports Microsoft Azure, in addition to its earlier support for Amazon Web Services and the Google Cloud Platform.
