About

Picolo is an ex-Googler founded 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 team consists of three engineers who have solid backgrounds in building scalable systems that serve billions of users every single day.
