Three Career-Defining Takeaways From My Time as a Yugabyte APJ Intern

Hello everyone! It’s Lakshmi, from the sunny (and rainy!) shores of Singapore. I am now wrapping up my internship, and it feels bittersweet to be penning down my thoughts on this document prior to posting it. These four months have been eventful—from the sleepless countdown to DSS Asia 2022 to interacting with a warm team that pools their strengths together.

In this post— the final installment of the series—I want to outline three lessons I have learned from my time as a Yugabyte APJ intern.

Securing YugabyteDB: Part 3 – CQL Client-to-Server Encryption in Transit

In Part 1 and Part 2 of this blog series, we covered securing YugabyteDB through the database’s internal RPC and SQL protocols using the TLS encryption protocol. In this post, we explore how to secure communication between CQL clients and the CQL-compatible YCQL query interface of YugabyteDB, as part of the client-to-server encryption in transit setup.

Encryption in transit is a common requirement for client-to-server communication.

Building a Simple Application with YugabyteDB and Prisma

When building modern web applications, developers often find data modeling and data access to be productivity bottlenecks. Rather than moving towards a schema-less database solution, many find using an ORM (object-relational mapping) tool with SQL to be their preferred option. The Node.js community has long been supportive of the Sequelize ORM, with Prisma being a newer option for those looking to model, migrate, and query their data.

In this blog, we’ll get acquainted with Prisma and how it interfaces with Node.js and YugabyteDB.

Change Data Capture (CDC) Using a Spring Data Processing Pipeline

Change Data Capture (CDC) is a technique to capture changes in a source database system in real-time. The goal is to stream those changes as events through a data processing pipeline for further processing.

CDC enables many use cases, especially in modern microservices-based architecture that involves a lot of bounded services. It is the de-facto choice for use cases such as search indexes, in-memory data cache, real-time notifications, data sync between sources,

How YugabyteDB Scales Temenos’ Cloud Platform to 100K Business Transactions Per Second

Last week, Temenos made a major announcement – the Temenos Banking Cloud is achieving 100,000 transactions per second and running on a greener and more scalable platform.

Specifically, this has been a three-month project with multiple vendors, and YugabyteDB has had a significant role in the project’s success.

So, what does their benchmark of 100 million customers and 200 million deposit accounts with 100,000 transactions per second and 61 transactions per second per core mean for the database and business users?

Streaming Changes From YugabyteDB to Downstream Databases

In this blog post, we will stream data to downstream databases leveraging YugabyteDB’s Change Data Capture (CDC) feature introduced in YugabyteDB 2.13. This will publish the changes to Kafka and then stream those changes to databases like MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Elasticsearch.

YugabyteDB CDC Downstream Databases Topology

The diagram below represents how data will flow from YugabyteDB to Kafka and then further to the sink databases. 

Specifically,

Change Data Capture (CDC) From YugabyteDB to Elasticsearch

This post walks through how to send data from YugabyteDB to Elasticsearch using YugabyteDB’s Change Data Capture (CDC) feature.

Background

YugabyteDB CDC is a pull-based approach to CDC introduced in YugabyteDB 2.13 that reports changes from the database’s write-ahead-log (WAL). More specifically, the detailed CDC architecture is mentioned in YugabyteDB’s documentation.

Elasticsearch is a search engine based on the Lucene library. It also provides a distributed,

The Power of a Modern Database: YugabyteDB and VMware Tanzu

As global companies engage in app modernization initiatives, their developers find it increasingly difficult to match those efforts with a strong data layer. These developers continue to work with costly monolithic databases like Oracle or DB2 and NoSQL databases that forgo strong data consistency and important relational features. But it’s clear a modern database is required to match the ambition of app modernization.

That’s where the YugabyteDB and VMware Tanzu story comes in.
