We manage several open source (Postgres, MySQL etc) and commercial (Oracle, SQL Server etc) database options, all of which Bloomberg is heavily invested in. Our platform manages 100K+ databases and is growing quickly with no end in sight. To support this scale, we are recreating our industry-leading, robust, resilient and performant database platform. We are heavily investing in automated testing, CI/CD and collaborative design processes. We develop and manage the services and operational toolkits that enable application teams to easily deploy data sets and query across them.
