Cockroach Labs, the company behind CockroachDB, is partnering with AWS, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud, Rackspace, Oracle Cloud, Digital Ocean, and Openshift to enable customers to deploy hybrid/multi-cloud databases that take advantage of the industry-leading advances in consistency, scalability, resilience and data locality delivered by CockroachDB.
The partner program highlights Cockroach Labs' ability to maximize IT flexibility for businesses by allowing companies to deploy CockroachDB on-premise, in the cloud, or even across clouds.
This enables enterprises to replicate or partition data across cloud vendors, or specifically target the most appropriate vendor for the job at hand – leading to the mitigation of risks associated with a single cloud vendor.
"For growth-stage companies built around cloud offerings over the past decade, multi-cloud capabilities have been viewed as impractical and unnecessary,” said Spencer Kimball, CEO and co-founder of Cockroach Labs. “However, the demand for multi and hybrid cloud is now skyrocketing because established enterprises are beginning to move to the cloud in earnest .Larger companies are less comfortable with the concentration risk inherent in a single cloud vendor, and are especially wary of consuming proprietary services offered by one vendor. Even assuming that risk, the complexity of existing legacy deployments mandates hybrid solutions which consolidate technologies across private and public clouds."
