Cloud Native Apps

Maximize the benefits of microservices and modern apps with a cloud native, distributed database. The way we build and deploy apps has changed. Traditional monolithic RDBMSs and NoSQL databases were not built to meet the needs of cloud native transactional applications. Accelerating app development and creating meaningful value for your customers depends on having a flexible, modern stack—from the infrastructure to the data layer to the application. A modern database is essential to fully realize cloud native benefits like productivity, agility, performance and simplicity. As a developer, you want to deliver meaningful solutions and maximize the time spent on adding value through code, not dealing with technical debt or temporary fixes. Customer expectations are at an all-time high, but with the right application experiences, like snappy performance and flexibility to meet them wherever they are, then your application can have a huge impact on customer loyalty and revenue growth. Increase satisfaction with high performance and always-on availability, reliability, low-latency. Streamlined, simple code means less issues and faster resolution of issues. Native availability increases trust with an always-on application. Developers can focus on building apps and learning useful skills, not finding ways to work around the challenges of legacy systems. Embrace automation and built-in intelligence to simplify operations around provisioning, scaling and maintaining.
