This is a great advantage for companies that need to optimize for performance (minimize overhead and latency) and create new services for both the cloud and behind the firewall.

Companies that must follow strict data governance regulations will be able to enjoy the same benefits as you have for cloud databases, but with full control, complete data privacy, and locality.

ClusterControl supports several different open source database technologies with the same benefits of scalability, reduced administration overhead, improved security, and

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Kimmel would be at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Most nominees would be home or wherever they chose to be, and would be connecting remotely. The possibility of technological foul-ups and other potential disasters loomed large.
