“Cloud Spanner presents tremendous value for our customers who are retailers, manufacturers and wholesale distributors around the world.

“Based on our experience and performance testing, Cloud Spanner is the most compelling option we’ve seen to power a high-scale relational query workload. It has the performance and scalability of a NoSQL database, but can execute SQL so it’s a viable alternative to sharded MySQL. It’s an impressive technology and could dramatically simplify how we manage our databases.”- Peter Bakkum Platform Lead, Quizlet
