Auto-Balancing Data in YugabyteDB, a Distributed SQL Database

Auto-Balancing Data in YugabyteDB, a Distributed SQL Database

YugabyteDB is a distributed, fault tolerant and highly available database with extremely low latencies for reads and writes. Data in YugabyteDB is sharded, replicated and balanced across multiple nodes that can potentially be in different availability zones, regions or even clouds for that matter. In this blog post, we look at how data balancing happens in YugabyteDB and some of the key features of YugabyteDB’s “Cluster Balancer.”

The cluster balancer runs once every second.

Yugabyte + Hasura Make it Easier to Build Complex, Global Applications

Building innovative applications that improve user experience and exceed expectations is hard. As users, we demand a lot. We demand that your applications always be available – who knows, we may want to order a new set of tires at 3:30 am on a Wednesday. We demand that your applications be fast wherever we are – doesn’t matter if it’s Phnom Penh or Philadelphia. And we definitely expect you to give us a good experience – your application should know what we want to do next and help us get there.

Reads in YugabyteDB – Tuning Consistency, Latency and Fault Tolerance

Reads in YugabyteDB – Tuning Consistency, Latency and Fault Tolerance

Introduction

YugabyteDB is built primarily to be a CP database per the CAP theorem. It supports two interfaces – YSQL for SQL workloads and YCQL for Cassandra-like workloads. In this blog, we will primarily talk about the YCQL interface. When an application interacts with the database using the YCQL interface, the writes are always consistent and reads are consistent by default. When this level of consistency is not required, YugabyteDB supports two other types of reads:

Migrating MySQL to YugabyteDB Using pgloader

Migrating MySQL to YugabyteDB Using pgloader

We understand that database migrations can be painful. We have helped users successfully migrate from MySQL to YugabyteDB, a PostgreSQL-compatible distributed SQL database. A very popular tool to accomplish this task is pgloader. In this post, we will cover how to migrate both your MySQL schema as well as data to YugabyteDB.

Prerequisites

Before starting the migration there are a few prerequisites you’ll need to address.

The YugabyteDB Vagrant Box

The YugabyteDB Vagrant Box

Using Vagrant, anyone running Windows, Linux or Mac OS X can run and test drive a YugabyteDB cluster without the need to install and configure YugabyteDB. Plus, you can start over if you want to test something different in a matter of minutes, or scale up the cluster, etc.

Please mind that the Vagrant images are non-official images for demo and test purposes, and not configured nor representative for performance.

This is how it works (Mac OS X):

People and Potential: Why I Joined Yugabyte

People and Potential: Why I Joined Yugabyte

When I first started my graduate studies in databases in 2012, I remember reading a freshly-minted paper that was making big waves in the DB community: Spanner: Google’s Globally-Distributed Database. I remember being blown away by the scale of the problems being tackled. Synchronizing a globally-distributed database while maintaining a usable transaction latency seemed an impossible task, one that comes with challenges that only exist on the global scale. As a naive grad student,
