Distributed SQL, also called distributed database or scale-out database, is a new category of databases that address extreme scalability. For years, digital businesses have faced unprecedented scalability challenges and traditional relational databases have historically struggled to keep up. In the past, scalability with relational databases was only achieved with complex, expensive and incomplete workarounds, such as sharding or expensive hardware. Non-relational approaches traded scalability for strong data consistency. Distributed SQL databases bring all the characteristics businesses expect from a relational database, such as data integrity and high availability, while also enabling massive scalability.
