MyDoc migrates from MySQL to CockroachDB for ease of scale, regulation compliance, and kubernetes compatibility.

MyDoc is a fast-growing digital healthcare company that was looking to migrate from MySQL to a database that would scale easily as the company expands its operations from Singapore and India into Vietnam, Hong Kong, the Philippines, and Indonesia. Initially, MyDoc was interested in CockroachDB for the ability to partition data by region in order to optimize performance. As MyDoc got closer to expanding into neighboring countries they realized that compliance with local data storage regulations was another reason to use CockroachDB. Additionally, MyDoc chose Kubernetes to run all of their backend services, which are hosted in the cloud, and they needed a cloud-native database that would work natively with Kubernetes. 

“Seeing how easy it is to fire up a Cockroach cluster and then looking back at what I had to do with MySQL - the difference is quite amazing.” 

- Mark Ridley, CTO, MyDoc
