Yugabyte, has announced Yugabyte Startups, a new program for startups to optimize their database infrastructure and take advantage of Yugabyte Platform, the software and support required to run YugabyteDB in production across clouds. Eligibility is based on funding stage and annual recurring revenue. The startup program requires a one-year commitment to Yugabyte.
Karthik Ranganathan, CTO, Yugabyte said, “Startups need to rapidly build and deliver new features, which becomes difficult with legacy databases and often results in engineering teams spending precious time just trying to optimize and manage the data tier. For a fast moving startup, it becomes essential to ensure high availability of the database, and the ability to scale on demand to accommodate rapid growth and new use cases, without requiring significant engineering time. We are here to help the startup community build and grow their businesses, and are happy to simplify their database operations through the Yugabyte Startups program.”
Yugabyte Startups package provides access to the Yugabyte Platform
As organisations deploy applications in and across clouds, their business initiatives are often hindered by the inability of traditional transactional databases to handle day-two operations without the implementation of cumbersome custom workarounds. Deploying applications across multiple clouds and regions to meet user demand creates a need to distribute data across geographies. Working around these issues with anything other than a distributed SQL database can lead to performance degradations and downtime, and force developers to spend extensive time on fire-fighting rather than innovating. To maintain a lean, high-growth startup, organizations need database solutions that can move as fast as their business.
The Yugabyte Startups package provides access to the Yugabyte Platform. The Yugabyte Platform subscription also includes 24×7 enterprise support and free access to Dev, Test, and QA environments.
