Why we wrote the PlanetScale “Future Database” principles

I am happy that, as of today, much of what drives us here at PlanetScale has now been laid out for you all to digest. We have an insatiable appetite to create, not just a database, but a platform that will become a crucial part of the world of software development. One designed to match the speed of your innovation and the scale of your vision.

So far, you have seen just the tip of the iceberg of what we plan to do. Our features are built to put more power in your hands. And our team is dedicated to delivering the future database before anyone else. We are committed to leading the way for all other databases – and we expect you all to hold us to this commitment.

Our largest customers can speak to our unprecedented performance at scale. Our community can speak to our innovation. But there is much more to deliver and this week we are going to continue our work of making the database of the future a reality at an alarming pace.

These principles will give you a glimpse of the future we hope to build alongside you, our community. We believe databases are lagging behind DevOps innovation and we wrote these principles to illustrate the path forward.

Your business deserves a predictable database.

Never worry about another 3am wake-up call saying the site is down. Give your engineers the power they deserve with a PlanetScale database today.
