Salesforce Cloud Database Expert Sameer Tiwari Joins MariaDB to Perfect the Ultimate MariaDB Cloud
MariaDB Corporation announced that Sameer Tiwari has joined the company’s growing cloud team as CTO of Cloud Infrastructure. Previously at Salesforce where he architected storage and cloud migration strategies, Tiwari is now responsible for driving the architecture and differentiation of MariaDB’s cloud solutions.
#MariaDB is making big moves in the cloud with the addition of #cloud #database expert Sameer Tiwari as @MariaDB CTO of Cloud Infrastructure.
“The choice of top talent such as Sameer mirrors our aspirations for our cloud database to challenge the status quo,” said Michael Howard, CEO, MariaDB Corporation. “Public cloud providers, particularly Amazon, have pursued stripped-down products that meet the least common denominator and follow a herd mentality. Our MariaDB cloud takes a different path that is not constrained by anemic database templates or fragmented based on use cases.”
While at Salesforce, Tiwari architected a distributed, scale-out platform for high-speed transactional workloads to move away from a proprietary database. He most recently worked to modernize the Salesforce cloud architecture to move thousands of machines to the cloud. Prior to Salesforce, Tiwari served as a senior architect at Greenplum (now Pivotal) where he focused on storage technologies for analytical workloads.
“First-generation cloud database technology is now nearly a decade old and based on legacy architectural decisions,” said Tiwari. “A lot has changed over the years, including access to the latest cloud-native services such as Kubernetes, advanced storage capabilities and more. I’m excited to join MariaDB to help guide how the MariaDB cloud can take advantage of these modern technologies to give customers the best MariaDB experience in the cloud.”
MariaDB’s evolution to the cloud is a process that builds on earlier advances, such as MariaDB Platform Managed Service. Since its introduction, MariaDB has continuously provided proactive monitoring, migration, schema changes, query optimization, performance tuning and security updates to customers in public and hybrid cloud environments.
