Top Executive: CEO Bill Cook
Headquarters: Sunnyvale, Calif.
Yugabyte develops YugabyteDB, a high-performance, distributed relational database designed to power global, internet-scale applications.
Yugabyte’s main commercial product is the Yugabyte Platform, a self-managed, private database-as-a-service available on any public, private, or hybrid cloud or Kubernetes infrastructure. Yugabyte Cloud, a fully managed database-as-a-service, is currently in beta and available on AWS and Google Cloud.
In November the company launched YugabyteDB 2.5 with new multi-region database capabilities and enterprise-grade security.
Former Pivotal Software president Bill Cook joined Yugabyte as CEO in May to lead the startup’s next stage of growth. Founded in 2016, Yugabyte raised $30 million in June of this year in a Series B funding round led by 8VC, with participation from Wipro Ventures, Lightspeed Venture Partners and Dell Technologies Capital.
