According to a 2020 analysis by Gartner, 75 % of all databases will be deployed or migrated to a cloud platform by 2022.

DBTA recently held a webinar with Peter Elliman, director, product marketing, Druva and Jesse Kachapis director, solution architecture, Druva, who discussed how Druva offers direct-to-cloud data protection for databases running on-premises and in the cloud.

Hasura, the data access infrastructure company, is adding cross database joins to the Hasura GraphQL Engine, allowing the ability to access data across databases at the API layer. The company also added schema sharing capabilities and git-based CI/CD workflows. These features are available in preview and will be generally available later this year.
