The partnership will enable large organisations to simplify migrations, automate manual operations and increase efficiency and developer velocity
London, United Kingdom January 25, 2023– Cockroach Labs, the company behind the leading cloud-native distributed SQL database CockroachDB, today announced its partnership with Computacenter, which helps customers to source, transform and manage technology infrastructure. This partnership will enhance and accelerate the adoption of cloud native technology by providing a cohesive approach that delivers modern cloud platforms, data driven IT and developer velocity.
Adopting a public cloud comes with its challenges and while it may be simple for start-ups and small organisations that are born in the cloud or able to pivot quickly, large enterprises have frequently found this level of adoption more challenging due to the scale and complexity of their IT systems. As a result, Cloud initiatives tend to advance at a slower pace within larger enterprises.
Cockroach Labs is the creator of CockroachDB, the most highly evolved, cloud-native, distributed SQL database on the planet. Helping companies of all sizes — and the apps they develop — to scale fast, survive failures, and thrive everywhere. CockroachDB is in use at some of the world’s largest enterprises across all industries, including some of the most recognised companies in banking, media & entertainment, retail, and technology.
“As we continue to expand in the EMEA region, we have chosen to work with a select few strategic partners with the skills and scalability to both grow our business and provide additional value-add services to the growing customer base in the region. This made Computacenter an easy, natural choice,” said Gareth Whiting, VP EMEA at Cockroach Labs. “By partnering with Computacenter and Cockroach Labs, large organisations are able to ensure applications are ready for production with all of the required tooling any production workload would require – including a distributed cloud native database like CockroachDB.”
Computacenter has built powerful partnerships with the world’s leading technology providers including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft, VMware, Google, HashiCorp, NetApp, Red Hat and many more. The partnership between Cockroach Labs and Computacenter will enable large enterprises to take advantage of the expertise Computacenter has acquired over 40+ years by delivering services in three key areas:
“Computacenter’s Platform & Hybrid IT solutions address the major areas of transformation for our enterprise customers. Adding CockroachDB products to our services portfolio will strengthen our ability to accelerate our customers' transformation initiatives.” said Paul Casey, CTO Platform and Hybrid IT at Computacenter. ”CockroachDB is a necessity for the multi-cloud era – a highly scalable enterprise-grade, run-anywhere database, or as a default database for developers to deliver cloud native workloads with the ability to scale to meet a broad set of demands.”
