Software as a Service (SaaS) companies are experiencing rapid growth as buying habits shift from analog, in-person interactions to fully-digital transactions. This increase in demand impacts all facets of a SaaS business, but none more so than its data.
Many SaaS applications need to process mission-critical data, display data on multiple views, support complex ad-hoc queries on arbitrary fields, and make frequent schema changes. As a result, these applications must be highly available, provide sub-second latency, and scale to handle 10K+ tenants.
A distributed SQL database is designed from the ground-up to handle unpredictable transactional workloads that require high data throughput and instant scalability, two common characteristics of SaaS applications.
In this webinar, we’ll explore the challenges of scaling modern SaaS applications and how they can be solved with a distributed SQL database. You’ll discover:
- Why a distributed SQL database is an ideal solution for extreme application scalability, reliability, and versatility
- Distributed SQL architecture and how it works in a typical SaaS use case
- The true facts behind popular distributed SQL myths
By the end of this webinar, you’ll be ready to take your SaaS application to the next level with a future-proof transactional database. You’ll also have all the knowledge you need to find the signal in the noise that is the distributed SQL database landscape.
