Simple and powerful: A Cloud Data Platform gives you unprecedented control of your data-layer and makes the orchestration of mission-critical application feasible with Kubernetes. A Cloud Data Platform sits between your full application stack and your data infrastructure. It decouples your application data from your on-prem hardware and hybrid, public cloud infrastructure. This approach eliminates the risk of creating silos of data between multiple private and public clouds while providing a single access point for provisioning data across all stages of the software development lifecycle. The combination of these technologies increases DevOps throughput while lowering your overall costs to develop, maintain and manage applications in a multi-cloud environment.
