Dragonbase, a Distributed Database Independently Developed by Kingsoft Cloud Provides Reliable Services

In recent years, with the rapid development of the Internet, especially the mobile Internet, the exponential growth of data and high concurrent access have brought great challenges to the centralized architecture of traditional relational database, so the distributed cloud database has a significant development opportunity. Compared with the centralized architecture of traditional relational database, the distributed database often has more advantages in usability, scalability and cost. In terms of performance, it gradually gets closer to and even exceeds that of the centralized architecture of traditional relational database.

In fact, Kingsoft Cloud has been running database products on the public cloud platform for many years, including relational databases with single and distributed architecture, and served some important top customers. Based on these practices, database products of Kingsoft Cloud are constantly updated and upgraded. DragonBase database products were launched.
