Rick Whiting

Businesses are looking to next-generation databases, data management tools and big data analytics software to help them leverage huge volumes of data to gain a competitive edge. Here’s a look at 10 hot big data technology startups developing leading-edge technologies that help solution providers and customers meet their big data challenges.

Yugabyte

Top Executive: Bill Cook, CEO

Yugabyte develops YugabyteDB, a next-generation, distributed relational database designed to handle huge amounts of data spanning multiple geographic regions and availability zones. The database supports global, business-critical applications—such as in cybersecurity and financial services—that require low query latency and extreme resilience against failures.

In September the startup launched Yugabyte Cloud, a fully managed Database as a Service for building cloud-based applications and moving legacy applications to cloud platforms.

Yugabyte’s founders, including President Kannan Muthukkaruppan, CTO Karthik Ranganathan and Software Architect Mikhail Bautin, founded Yugabyte in 2016 after developing business-critical database technology at Oracle and Facebook.

In October Yugabyte raised $188 million in a Series C round of funding that put the Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company’s valuation at more than $1.3 billion.
