Hypertable, Inc. is Closing its Doors
03.14.2016 | Goodbye Hypertable, Inc.
After nearly six and a half years of operation, we've decided to shut down Hypertable, Inc., the commercial support company for Hypertable. Early on, we made the decision to forgo external funding and bootstrap the company on customer revenue. This decision afforded us the ability to make the best technology decisions and build an exceptional product. Unfortunately, given the sheer number of competing technologies and the massive amount of aggregate investment that has been made in the space, it's become very difficult for the company to compete for mind share. Given the current environment, Hypertable Inc. is no longer financially viable.
The Hypertable project will continue to exist, but it won’t be actively developed. I will continue to monitor the mailing lists and respond to questions. To help those of you who are currently using Hypertable, we’ve released (with version 0.9.8.11) our diagnostic and recovery tools (see Administrator Guide -> Diagnostic and Recovery).
I would like to thank all of the customers of Hypertable, Inc. and all of the individual members of the Hypertable community. Your contributions have made Hypertable the stable, high performance, and highly useful scalable database it is today.
