Distributed SQL Summit Recap: 5G and Data Challenges

Distributed SQL Summit Recap: 5G and Data Challenges

At the Distributed SQL Summit 2020, Hale Donertasli, Cloud Architect at Rakuten Mobile, presented the talk “5G and Data Challenges”. In the talk, Hale describes the new innovations that will become possible because of 5G and its impressive data rate that will eventually achieve 20Gbps. Underpinning this achievement in speed is a cloud native, service-based architecture. But enhancing data and network speed and reliability while adopting microservices in the cloud doesn’t come without some challenges to address and overcome.

Service Mesh Era: Building Modern Apps with YugabyteDB and Istio

Service Mesh Era: Building Modern Apps with YugabyteDB and Istio

Microservices architectures are becoming the de facto way developers are thinking about how their applications are constructed. But security remains a top concern for many organizations. Given the general trends of the proliferation of threats within the production network and the increased points of privileged access, it is increasingly necessary to adopt a zero-trust network security approach for microservices architectures.

One of the most common security approaches is to set up mTLS.

Distributed SQL Summit Recap: Mainframe Modernization

Distributed SQL Summit Recap: Mainframe Modernization

At the Distributed SQL Summit 2020, Brenesh Stanslas Flower Mary – Senior Architect, Wipro Digital, presented the talk “Monolith to Microservices.” In the talk he demonstrated how it is possible to take a large, intertwined mainframe monolith and break it down into microservices using a practical approach. The end-to-end approach he demonstrated made use of Wipro’s “moderniZ” platform which addresses the modernization (or transformation) of UIs, data, and services.

Challenges with Mainframes Today

Brenesh pointed out that although many organizations are well down the path of moving new (and some legacy applications) to the cloud or cloud-native technologies so they can take advantage of the cost savings,

A PostgreSQL-Compatible, Distributed SQL Cheat Sheet: The Basics

A PostgreSQL-Compatible, Distributed SQL Cheat Sheet: The Basics

In this blog post, we’ll highlight how all the basic commands you end up using in the first few minutes after installing PostgreSQL are identical in YugabyteDB. We’ll cover connecting to the database, creating users, databases, schemas, and calling external files from the SQL shell. In the next blog post in this series we’ll tackle querying data to demonstrate that if you know how to query data in PostgreSQL, you already know how to do it in YugabyteDB.
