Cloudflare takes over AWS, Azure and Google with D1 distributed database

Built on recently released Serverless Application platform Worker And that R2 object storage serviceCloudflare has released a new serverless database called D1 to take over the AWS, Microsoft Azure, GCP, and Oracle databases.

The company claims that D1 distributed databases, located at more than 250 global locations (at the edge of Cloudflare), reduce developer latency and data transfer charges compared to other databases.

According to the company, lower latency can be achieved by storing the data closer to the user in the database or where a particular application is running.

“This approach to building a serverless database is in stark contrast to AWS Lambda’s approach of data returning to functions,” said Holger Mueller, Principal Analyst at Constellation Research.

“Currently, there is no service on the market that can be compared to the D1, and we expect other cloud services to respond to this launch in a unique way,” Mueller said.

Another benefit or possible reason for rapid adoption could be Cloudflare D1 SQLite API integration compatible with Oracle’s MySQL Database Management System (DBMS).
