Initial Diligence

Yugabyte is the company behind YugabyteDB, the high-performance distributed SQL database for building global, internet-scale apps. It is built using a unique combination of the high-performance document store, auto sharding, per-shard distributed consensus replication, and multi-shard ACID transactions (inspired by Google Spanner). YugabyteDB serves both scale-out RDBMS and internet-scale OLTP workloads with low query latency, extreme resilience against failures, and global data distribution. As a cloud-native database, it can be deployed across public and private clouds as well as in Kubernetes environments with ease. YugabyteDB is fully open-source under the Apache 2.0 license. It was founded in 2016 and is headquartered in Sunnyvale, California.
