Open Source Geo-Distributed Relational Database on Multi-Cluster Kubernetes

Google Spanner, conceived in 2007 for internal use in Google AdWords, has been rightly considered a marvel of modern software engineering. This is because it is the world’s first horizontally-scalable relational database that can be stretched not only across multiple nodes in a single data center but also across multiple geo-distributed data centers, without compromising ACID transactional guarantees.

Basic CRUD Operations Using Hasura GraphQL with Distributed SQL on GKE

Basic CRUD Operations Using Hasura GraphQL with Distributed SQL on GKE

Editor’s note: This post was updated July 20, 2020 with new Helm and YugabyteDB versions

GraphQL is an MIT-licensed project originally developed at Facebook in 2012 and open-sourced a few years later. Two popular GraphQL projects, Hasura and Apollo, have reported download numbers of 29 and 33 million, respectively. Why? Think of GraphQL as a query language for APIs and a runtime for fulfilling those queries with your existing data. GraphQL provides a complete and understandable description of the data in your API,

Getting Started with pgbench and Distributed SQL on GKE

Getting Started with pgbench and Distributed SQL on GKE

pgbench is a simple program for running benchmark tests on PostgreSQL. It runs the same sequence of SQL commands over and over, possibly in multiple concurrent database sessions, and then calculates the average transaction rate (transactions per second). By default, pgbench tests a scenario that is loosely based on TPC-B, involving five SELECT, UPDATE, and INSERT commands per transaction. However, it is easy to test other cases by writing your own transaction script files.

Monitoring YugabyteDB with Prometheus and Grafana in Kubernetes

Monitoring YugabyteDB with Prometheus and Grafana in Kubernetes

Prometheus has matured into a robust time-series metrics monitoring solution since it was first open-sourced in 2012. CNCF incubated it as its second project after Kubernetes in 2016 followed by graduation in 2018. Today it is arguably the most popular option for monitoring Kubernetes cluster metrics as well as container-based applications. Combined with Grafana for visualization, it becomes a potent combination for dashboarding performance of applications. Nodes in a YugabyteDB cluster have exposed a Prometheus endpoint for easy metrics collection right from the inception of the open source project.

Getting Started with Falco Runtime Security and Cloud Native Distributed SQL on Google Kubernetes Engine

Getting Started with Falco Runtime Security and Cloud Native Distributed SQL on Google Kubernetes Engine

Falco is an incubating CNCF project that provides cloud native, open source runtime security for applications running in Kubernetes environments. Falco monitors process behaviors to detect anomalous activity and help administrators gain deeper insights into process execution.  Behind the scenes, Falco leverages the Linux-native extended Berkeley Packet Filter (eBPF) technology to analyze network traffic and audits a system at the most fundamental level, the Linux kernel. Falco then enriches this data with other input streams,

Cloud Native Meets Distributed SQL: Bringing Microservices, Kubernetes, Istio & YugabyteDB Together with Hipster Shop Demo

Cloud Native Meets Distributed SQL: Bringing Microservices, Kubernetes, Istio & YugabyteDB Together with Hipster Shop Demo

Polyglot persistence is the widely accepted database implementation strategy when it comes to decomposing monoliths into microservices. In practice, this requires every microservice to model its data needs independently using a database that is purpose-built for that particular model, and thereafter store the data in an independent database instance. While independent database instances as a deployment paradigm makes sense from an decoupled microservices architecture standpoint, choosing multiple different databases each with a specialized data model is usually justified in the context of performance,
