Distributed SQL Summit Recap: A Migration Journey from Amazon DynamoDB to YugabyteDB and Hasura

Distributed SQL Summit Recap: A Migration Journey from Amazon DynamoDB to YugabyteDB and Hasura

At the Distributed SQL Summit 2020, Tobias Meixner – CTO & Co-Founder at BRIKL, presented the talk, “A Migration Journey from Amazon DynamoDB to YugabyteDB and Hasura.”

Switching databases is painful, even more so when going from NoSQL to SQL. In this talk Tobias gave us insights into BRIKL’s two key elements of their migration path. First, migrating from Apollo Server and Amazon DynamoDB over to Hasura and YugabyteDB.

9 Techniques to Build Cloud-Native, Geo-Distributed SQL Apps with Low Latency

9 Techniques to Build Cloud-Native, Geo-Distributed SQL Apps with Low Latency

This post is an in-depth look at the various techniques that applications needing low latency and high availability can leverage while using a geo-distributed SQL database like YugabyteDB so that the negative impacts of a high-latency, unreliable Wide Area Network (WAN) are minimized.

Geo-Distributed SQL is the Future of RDBMS

Enterprises are increasingly moving to cloud native applications powered by microservices architecture. These applications run on elastic cloud infrastructure such as serverless frameworks and containers.

Why are NoSQL Databases Becoming Transactional?

Why are NoSQL Databases Becoming Transactional?

The SQL vs. NoSQL database split started with the publication of the Google BigTable and Amazon Dynamo papers in 2006 and 2007 respectively. These original designs focused on horizontal write scalability without compromising the performance observed in the single node databases dominant at that time. The compromises instead came either in the form of eventual consistency (i.e. inability to read the last update) or loss of multi-key access patterns (such as SQL integrity/foreign key constraints,

AWS re:Invent 2018 Recap – The Freedom to Build

AWS re:Invent 2018 Recap – The Freedom to Build

Team YugaByte was at AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas last week. While AWS was announcing a flurry of new product releases and existing product updates, we had some excellent deep dive conversations at our booth on the future of transactional databases and how YugabyteDB is playing its part in shaping that future. This post summarizes our key learnings from the conference, which continues to set the record every year as world’s largest gathering of cloud platform engineers and executives.

How DynamoDB’s Pricing Works, Gets Expensive Quickly and the Best Alternatives

How DynamoDB’s Pricing Works, Gets Expensive Quickly and the Best Alternatives

DynamoDB is AWS’s NoSQL alternative to Cassandra, primarily marketed to mid-sized and large enterprises. It works best for those who require a flexible data model, reliable performance, and the automatic scaling of throughput capacity. In a nutshell, DynamoDB’s monthly cost is dictated by data storage, writes and reads. Let’s walk through a synopsis.

DynamoDB vs MongoDB vs Cassandra for Fast Growing Geo-Distributed Apps

DynamoDB vs MongoDB vs Cassandra for Fast Growing Geo-Distributed Apps

Amazon DynamoDB is a popular NoSQL database choice for mid-to-large enterprises. In this post, we look beyond Amazon’s marketing claims to explore how well DynamoDB satisfies the core technical requirements of fast growing geo-distributed apps with low latency reads, a common use case found in today’s enterprises. We examine the development, operational and financial consequences of working around the limitations of DynamoDB when attempting to “force-fit” for this use case. Finally, we compare and contrast alternatives such as MongoDB,
