Imagine you show up at your favorite cafe and its credit card terminal is down. What happens? Most likely, you don’t have any cash on you. Instead, you go to the next cafe and order from them instead. We never want this to happen to one of our customers, so that’s why we chose to build our infrastructure on CockroachDB. At Aurora Payments, we make sure that small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) get paid quickly and with low fees.
