In this post, we shine a spotlight on Admiral’s Co-Founder, James Hartig. Read on to learn more about James’ passion for databases and the first time he heard about YugabyteDB. He also discusses his experience using YugabyteDB Managed (formerly Yugabyte Cloud) to serve 10,000 queries per second across three continents.
Manetu uses YugabyteDB to support its Consumer Privacy Management (CPM®) platform, a microservices application that needed fine-grained transaction support, secondary indexes, and triplestore capabilities, all while being able to scale to billions of encrypted identities.
Twitter is one of the world’s favorite places for people and brands to connect online. Powering a global service that helps people share everything from breaking news and entertainment to sports, politics, and everyday interests takes infrastructure that can adapt and evolve over time.
Justuno provides a Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) Platform that enables e-commerce sites to turn visitors into customers through personalized onsite messaging, intelligent cross-selling, and upselling. More than 188,000 (and counting) industry leading brands improve sales and the customer experience at the same time.
At the heart of the Justuno platform is visitor intelligence data, and there’s a lot of it. Justuno tracks between 30 and 50 data points per visitor–such as time on site,
If you work with databases, at some point you are going to need to get data in and out them using a format that can be consumed by a completely different system. YugabyteDB makes use of CSV files to make this as easy as possible. The CSV format is arguably the most universally portable way to get data migrations accomplished.
TL;DR – YugabyteDB makes use of Cassandra’s COPY FROM command and a forked version of Cassandra’s Bulk Loader to get data into the system.
Lots has happened since our last engineering update about 3 months ago. Below are some of the highlights.
PostgreSQL API Updates & PostgresConf Silicon Valley Wrap-Up
We have made a lot of progress on YSQL, the PostgreSQL compatible distributed SQL API for YugabyteDB! You can also read about YSQL architecture which covers how distributed SQL is implemented in YugabyteDB.
We were at the first ever PostgresConf Silicon Valley in October 2018.
Apache Cassandra: The Truth Behind Tunable Consistency, Lightweight Transactions & Secondary Indexes
ACID transactions were a big deal when first introduced formally in the 1980s in monolithic SQL databases such as Oracle and IBM DB2. Popular distributed NoSQL databases of the past decade including Apache Cassandra initially focused on “big data” use cases that did not require such guarantees and hence avoided implementing them altogether. Our post, “A Primer on ACID Transactions: The Basics Every Cloud App Developer Must Know” details the various types of ACID transactions (single key,
Welcome to another post in our ongoing series that highlights new features from the latest 1.1 release announced last week. Today we are going to look at document data modeling using the native JSON data type available in YugabyteDB’s Cassandra compatible YCQL API. Note that this data type is specific to YugabyteDB and is not part of the standard Cassandra Query Language (CQL).
With YugabyteDB’s native JSON support,
