It's raining databases.
“Talented people are always in short supply. We are forced to create our work with insufficient resources, and that weakness becomes our very strength”
— Hayao Miyazaki
It’s raining databases!
Recently there have been many new database announcements, from both open source as well as private companies. Be it columnar, relational, in-memory or file-based.
I am privileged to work with few of tech startups and enterprise companies for building their tech teams and finding them talent. My work gives me insights about what companies are hiring for. I can tell you for sure every medium size tech company is building one or the other type of in-house databases.
To give you an idea here are few announcements of data companies about product, funding, launches about their database offerings -
Announcing D1: our first SQL database - Cloudflare
Database Optimization on Autopilot: Our Investment in OtterTune - IntelCapital on OtterTune
This blog discusses Manarch Paper - Google’s Planet-Scale In-Memory Time Series Database - Monarch
I found this interesting discussion on AmorphousDB on Linkedin but I could not locate their website or more details - AmorphousDB: Rethinking the Relational Database
These are few references to recent db discussions and this is not exhaustive list, I must have missed many other db services or new databases. It’s raining databases!
