Kindred Group, Cockroach Labs partner on development effort

20 October 2017

The Kindred Futures arm of Kindred Group has linked up with Cockroach Labs to develop a “next-generation” online gaming platform.

The two companies will work together to create a database solution that Kindred Group said will “greatly improve” the experience for customers across all of its brands.

Cockroach Labs is the company behind CockroachDB, which it said is the first open source distributed database built to replicate itself around the world with the ability to survive data centre outages.

Marcus Smedman, chief technology officer at Kindred Group, said: “CockroachDB is exactly the product and team we’ve been seeking as we look for better ways to serve our growing base of global customers.

“Countries are becoming more protective of their citizens’ data, and we need a partner that can help us to better serve global users while remaining compliant with domestic regulations.”

Spencer Kimball, chief executive and co-founder of Cockroach Labs, added: “The real genius in the partnership is its mutual benefit: Kindred helps us build a product better suited to its needs, and they remain at the forefront of technological innovation.”
