We've talked a lot about the role of data and databases in cloud-native architectures here on Pivotal Insights. Unfortunately, how and where developers manage their application data, as important as it is, hasn't always been at the top of the priority list. That's in part because most databases aren't particularly well-suited for cloud-native environments. But that is changing.
In this week's episode of Pivotal Insights, Crunchy Data's Paul Laurence joins Jeff and Dormain to chat about the ways in which databases are evolving to better fit into modern cloud-native environments. Crunchy Data's own offering, an enterprise-grade distribution of PostgreSQL with an emphasis on security, is one great example.
