Our History

PingCAP started in 2015 when three seasoned infrastructure engineers were sick and tired of the way databases were managed, scaled, and maintained while working at leading Internet companies.

Seeing no good solution on the market, they decided to build one themselves — the open-source way.

With the help of hundreds of global contributors, PingCAP is building TiDB, an advanced, open source, distributed SQL database with MySQL compatibility. TiDB is one of the most popular open-source database projects in the world. Additionally, TiKV, TiDB’s unique Key-Value storage layer, is a CNCF Graduated project.
