PingCAP announced the official commercial use of TiDB Cloud, helping global enterprises build a new generation of cloud-native applications on the cloud.
Enterprise users can easily support various innovative business scenarios with the help of the fully managed database service of TiDB Cloud, freeing enterprises from complex tasks such as back-end infrastructure operation and maintenance and data backup.
On May 11, 2022, PingCAP, an enterprise-level open source distributed database manufacturer, announced the official commercial use of TiDB Cloud worldwide.
After more than a year of extensive testing by global users and partners, TiDB Cloud today officially provides fully managed DBaaS (Database-as-a-Service) services to global users, allowing users to run key business transactions and services on fully managed databases. Analyze tasks in real-time and enjoy the performance benefits and business continuity guarantees on the cloud.
As the data-driven digital transformation process continues to accelerate, the business growth of enterprises is faced with the challenges of large-scale data access and data silos. TiDB Cloud provides next-generation cloud-native database solutions to help users quickly build cloud-native key applications in a multi-cloud environment, whether these applications run on Amazon Web Services or Google Cloud.
Traditional databases have been unable to support today's millions of transactions per second. PingCAP has been committed to solving massive, real-time, online data processing and analysis problems, providing global enterprises with a new generation of databases, allowing enterprise users to manage massive data processing at the same time. Activating real-time data analysis capabilities, TiDB Cloud further lowers the threshold for enterprise users to use HTAP real-time analysis capabilities.

Through TiDB Cloud, PingCAP is helping users consolidate and simplify the technology stack, freeing enterprise users from maintaining expensive and independent database instances. TiDB Cloud shields the complexity of TiDB database deployment, operation and maintenance, and performance tuning. It only takes a few minutes to set up, which greatly simplifies the work tasks of developers and DBAs, and reduces the overall cost of enterprises.
In addition to standard services, TiDB Cloud has added two new service supports--Enterprise and Premium. These two advanced service supports provide faster response and problem resolution, allowing users to obtain more emergency rescue services.
