Yugabyte has been getting a lot of attention with 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 company launched Yugabyte Cloud, a fully managed Database as a Service for building cloud-based applications and moving legacy applications to cloud platforms.
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.
