The more important cause of environmental change is that the All in Cloud trend. IDC predicts that the volume of data on the cloud will exceed that of traditional data centers by 2021.

In this new era, commercial databases are challenged due to their high costs, high O & M difficulties, and low scalability and availability. The cloud-native database is customized for the cloud and has the elasticity of cloud computing. It features the ease of use and openness of open-source databases and the management and processing performance of traditional databases, become the best choice for enterprises.

In the 2018 database Magic Quadrant released by Gartner, Alibaba Cloud and AWS were both selected and became the two dark horses in the database market.

In addition, Li Feifei also shared Alibaba Cloud's innovative research on databases, such as extreme horizontal expansion and extreme analysis of massive data.
