Database product companies typically have a few phases. First, the company will develop a technology with some kind of innovation such as speed, scalability, or durability. The company will offer support contracts around that technology for a period of time, before eventually building a managed, hosted offering.
PlanetScale is a database company built around the Kubernetes-based Vitess technology. Sugu Sougoumarane is the CTO of PlanetScale, and formerly worked at YouTube, where he built large-scale SQL databases. In today’s show, he talks about building out the core PlanetScale technology, tuning PlanetScale’s consensus model, and the development of the hosted cloud service offering of the company.
