Pin data to a location and achieve distributed, horizontal scale

Consolidate workloads within a single solution that allows you to geographically distribute data close to your customers. Deploy in a multi-cloud setting and partition data by location to scale to any region while maintaining data integrity and adhering to data privacy regulations.

Survive spikes in workloads from an influx in concurrent users

Heavy read/write workloads are no match for a consistent, distributed SQL database that can handle millions of concurrent bets in real-time. Plus, a multi-active architecture helps you survive the failure of a node, availability zone, and even an entire cloud region, keeping players in your application.

Guarantee accurate end-user data with ACID transactions

Deliver on your promise to users and provide accurate information in real-time thanks to built-in ACID compliant guarantees and serializable isolation. Even with high concurrency and competing distributed transactions, leaderboards stay up-to-date and payouts process correctly.
