Picolo is an ex-Wisc, ex-Googler startup building a new database and compute platform. Picolo's mission is 'one data, one compute close to the source'. We aim to offer a firebase like service whose backend runs on multiple public clouds and on the edge at mini datacenters across the world. We also aim to host Picolo's database and compute at 5G access points in the future for maximum performance and resiliency. Some problems we are thinking about are: How should a decentralized database running over a 1000 nodes work? How should these nodes talk to each other? What if some of these nodes are malicious? Our founding team consists of two ex-Google engineers who have solid backgrounds in building scalable systems that serve billions of users every single day. We closed our first round of funding from top Silicon Valley VCs and are hiring for full time, part time and internship positions.
Fun fact about the logo:
We chose the number PI (first two letters of Picolo) as it is irrational and thus infinite in representation. That is, there is no way to represent PI in a finite manner in the language of math we have today, much like most of the data in the world. The logo is constructed of 1s and 0s taken from the first 128 bits of the binary representation of PI.
