Manual Sharding Sucks

Distributed SQL databases are shaking up the decades-old regime of traditional RDBMS. Why? Because it is time to modernize your database to meet the demands of cloud native applications!

Because you shouldn’t have to manually shard your database to scale or suffer downtime when infrastructure fails.

Database Downtime is Passé Join us at Distributed SQL Summit (DSS) – an open destination for you to discuss, collaborate, share ideas, and learn with your fellow app developers and database practitioners.

Whether you are a developer, database admin, architect, or tech leader, you will have the opportunity to meet peers, expand your knowledge of new technologies, enjoy free hands-on experience with distributed SQL, get certified to boost your career, and more.


DSS Day Amsterdam

Join us at DSS Day Amsterdam on 18 April for an interactive half day session! Focused on distributed SQL, this event is co-located with KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe.* We are excited to bring together the Kubernetes community for live distributed SQL discussions and technical workshops with app developers and database practitioners.

What is Distributed SQL?

Distributed SQL is a revolutionary category of databases for building mission-critical, cloud native applications.

A distributed SQL database is a single logical relational database deployed on a cluster of servers. A distributed SQL database automatically replicates and distributes data across multiple servers. These databases are strongly consistent and support consistency across availability and geographic zones in the cloud.

At a minimum, a distributed SQL database has the following characteristics:

  • A SQL API for accessing and manipulating data and objects
  • Automatic distribution of data across nodes in a cluster
  • Automatic replication of data in a strongly consistent manner
  • Distributed query execution
  • Distributed ACID transactions
