Database product companies typically have a few phases. First, the company will develop a technology with some kind of innovation such as speed, scalability, or durability. The company will offer support contracts around that technology for a period of time, before eventually building a managed, hosted offering.

Sugu Sougoumarane is the CTO of PlanetScale, and formerly worked at YouTube, where he built large-scale SQL databases.
