Yugabyte taps VSTECS to accelerate distributed SQL adoption in the Philippines
Tech distributor VSTECS Philippines has recently entered a distribution partnership with Yugabyte, the company behind the leading open source distributed SQL database. YugabyteDB is used by customers worldwide to power digital customer engagement applications that demand linear scalability, extreme resilience against failures, and low query latency.
Yugabyte’s mission is to become the default database for cloud-native applications in a multi-cloud world. It recently announced an expansion of its global footprint with the opening of new business operations in the EMEA and APAC region. The international expansion is being fueled by the worldwide demand for YugabyteDB, the open-source distributed SQL database and related products and services. YugabyteDB is increasingly being adopted by enterprises and startups as they look at delivering better customer experiences through cloud-native applications that geographically distribute data for resilience, low latency access, and compliance reasons.
Traditional monolithic databases such as Oracle, Postgres, and MySQL are unable to address the scalability, performance, and resiliency needs of modern OLTP workloads due to architectural limitations. While NoSQL databases such as Cassandra offer scale-out capabilities, they sacrifice data consistency guarantees and relational data models that developers expect from transactional databases. Yugabyte sees a big potential to address this gap by providing a 100% open source distributed SQL database that can be deployed across hybrid or multi-cloud, and addresses scalability, resiliency, and performance gaps. By offering familiar APIs such as Postgres and Cassandra API, YugabyteDB reduces the complexity of adoption while addressing challenges in the current set of solutions.
“In order to simplify and scale the adoption of YugabyteDB for the Philippines market, we are happy to announce our partnership with VST-ECS. With their experience in supporting traditional and emerging technologies, we believe we have found a partner that has the infrastructure and channel ecosystem to support our growth in the Philippines,” says Danny Zaidifard, VP of Alliances and Business Development, Yugabyte.
“VST-ECS has a proven pedigree in bringing emerging technologies successfully to the Philippines market. The VST-Yugabyte partnership will accelerate the adoption of YugabyteDB amongst the Philippines channel community to help support their customers in their digital execution for one of the most crucial pieces of the enterprise technology stack” says Dennis Sze, Director for Asia South, Yugabyte.
“We are happy to partner with Yugabyte to bring the next-generation cloud-native database to the Philippine market. I am confident that this partnership will allow us to unlock the full potential of digital execution of enterprises and startups in the Philippines and drive more business impact for our partners in creating value for their customers.”, says Jimmy Go, President and CEO, VSTECS Philippines.
According to Androit Market Research, the cloud database and the DBaaS business is estimated to be worth 26 Billion USD by 2025 and it is growing at 46.78% CAGR year on year. “We hope to tap this opportunity”, he added.
Yugabyte serves Fortune 100 customers in the field of eCommerce, financial services, and telecommunications where geographic data distribution, transactional capabilities, and horizontal scalabilities are crucial considerations for their digital execution. It has been nominated in “The 10 Hottest Tech Startups of 2021” as well as “The 10 Hottest Cloud Startups of 2020” by CRN, and Gartner Cool Vendor 2020 by Gartner.
