e-Commerce and Cloud Migration: Responding to Data Growth

Presented by

Sean Clark, CTO, Whitebox & Manjot Singh, Head of SkyServices, MariaDB

About this talk

The pandemic forced everyone to shop almost exclusively online. For Whitebox, an e-commerce technology company, they saw more and more people turn to their customers and their platform to deliver essential goods. Due to the company's rapid growth and growing data needs, Whitebox needed a new cloud database to help them reach new heights. After considering several cloud database options, Whitebox chose to migrate to MariaDB SkySQL on Google Cloud Platform for its scalability and access to the most knowledgeable DBAs and database engineers in the industry. With SkySQL and SkyDBAs, Whitebox saw its brands achieve record sales over the holidays, ending the year with a 700% increase in orders processed year over year. Join this webinar to hear from Sean Clark, Whitebox CTO, who drove the evaluation and migration personally, and Manjot Singh, Head of SkyServices at MariaDB, where they will cover: • Technical improvements needed for Whitebox to scale as fast as possible to meet a fast-growing customer base with increasing data needs • How Whitebox migrated to SkySQL, why they decided to take a crazy jump right before Black Friday, and how the MariaDB SkyDBA team helped • What’s next for Whitebox as they move forward with MariaDB
