We are Fifth Sigma

Distributed database professionals integral to the creation of the NoSQL movement, we shaped the roles of distributed databases at the biggest organisations on the internet for years. Google. Amazon. Mozilla. Obama for America. Whatever your needs, we can help.

Engineering Expertise

We have written the internals of some of the most popular NoSQL software, including HBase.

Operational Expertise

We were the first to operate and build runbooks for NoSQL databases in live-critical production environments, including HBase and Cassandra. We were key players of these distributed database systems in their first major critical production rollouts.

Monitoring Expertise

We have always been responsible for producing human-interpretable statistics from the trending and alerting packages that watch the databases. Our job is to present the status of the cluster in a way that the management can understand.
