Yugabyte, the provider of open source distributed SQL databases, has signed a strategic partnership agreement with full lifecycle data services provider Intuita.
The partnership aims to support transactional database cloud initiatives across EMEA. Intuita brings experience in cloud migration, transaction database implementation and digital transformation.
“With Intuita, UK and European organisations will be more successful, more quickly,” said Martin Gaffney (pictured), vice president of Yugabyte EMEA. “Our focus is on delivering the best cloud-native database technology on the market. Combining this with deep domain knowledge and the best practice implementation approach from Intuita, will help CIOs to achieve rapid and effective enterprise-wide adoption.”
Darren Timmins, CTO of Intuita, adds: “This strategic partnership enables us to establish a new operational database centre of excellence at our firm focused around Yugabyte’s industry-leading technology. It will help us to further enhance our enterprise data management services, allowing our consultants to deliver an even stronger technology proposition and service to organisations looking to embrace the booming cloud-native transactional database market.”
US-headquartered Yugabyte completed a Series C funding round for $188m in October 2021, which valued the business at more than $1.3 billion. This was followed by the announcement of Yugabyte 2.11, a major release extending PostgreSQL compatibility of the open source distributed SQL database.
Yugabyte established its European business in May 2021. Founded in 2016 by former Facebook and Oracle engineers, Yugabyte is backed by Lightspeed Venture Partners, Dell Technologies Capital, 8VC and Wipro Ventures.
Intuita is headquartered in the UK and is a specialist in delivering data solutions in the telco, retail, gaming, media and finance segments.
