On today's edition of Tech Talks Daily Podcast, I'm joined by Vinay Joosery, CEO of Severalnines. The database industry veteran shares with me how Severalnines has built its reputation around open-source database operations, driven by a values-driven approach to building products that deliver "Wow!" moments to customers.

Vinay also delves into data sovereignty and how organizations often center their discussions around data residency for compliance purposes. He explains that true data sovereignty is an extension of sovereignty over an organization's stack and that heavy users of public clouds and their services, such as DBaaS, are not truly sovereign. However, it's not a binary proposition, and there are varying degrees of sovereignty.

Vinay also touches on the importance of stack decisions being made based on balancing capabilities and risk tolerance, not convenience. He also points out the risks of cloud deployment models, including vendor, environment, ecosystem lock-in, database license type and stability, key-man risk, cost predictability, etc.

Vinay shares that the landscape has evolved to enable organizations to get the convenience of cloud deployment models and the reliability and scalability of DBaaS without sacrificing their sovereignty wholesale. Please tune in to learn more about data sovereignty and how organizations can make informed decisions about their data stack.
