Cockroach Labs Creates Cloud SQL Database Solution

Cockroach Labs, the company behind CockroachDB, is launching CockroachCloud, a self-service distributed SQL database.

By using CockroachCloud, organizations can provision, scale, and manage a highly available distributed SQL database.

Cockroach Labs features benefits such as:

  • Support for geo-location of data: Provides easy access to a highly available and scalable distributed SQL cluster that reduces latencies and complies with national and global privacy laws by specifying locations for data.
  • Scalability & Performance: Lets organizations deploy a single database across a distributed geography and delivers low latencies to end users.
  • Resilience: Ensures an organizations’ application data is always on and available, so they never have to worry about downtime.

“We designed CockroachCloud for organizations that want to get their applications to market faster. We take care of the daily maintenance, security, and operations of their databases so they can spend more time building apps and running your business,” said Spencer Kimball, Cockroach Labs’ CEO and co-founder.
