Using Stored Procedures in Distributed SQL Databases

Using Stored Procedures in Distributed SQL Databases

These days, most monolithic SQL databases support stored procedures. This support first emerged in commercially available offerings in the late nineteen eighties. However, stored procedure support is not yet standard in distributed SQL databases. In fact, YugabyteDB is just one of two in this category—supporting stored procedures written in PostgreSQL’s PL/pgSQL. (Aurora also supports stored procedures.) This post recaps the case for stored procedures that motivated their introduction all those years ago. And it describes a performance experiment that measures one of the benefits brought by using stored procedures: the reduction in client-server round trips for multi-statement business transactions.

How Plume Handled Billions of Operations Per Day Despite an AWS Zone Outage

How Plume Handled Billions of Operations Per Day Despite an AWS Zone Outage

Enterprises deploy YugabyteDB clusters across multiple availability zones (AZs) in order to ensure continuous availability of their business-critical services even when faced with cloud infrastructure failures like zone outages. On November 12, 2019, there was one such outage of an entire availability zone in the eu-central-1 region of AWS. This was reported on the AWS status page on that day, along with an official update.

In this post, we are going to look at how a Yugabyte Platform customer,

How YugabyteDB Scales to More than 1 Million Inserts Per Sec

How YugabyteDB Scales to More than 1 Million Inserts Per Sec

There are a number of well-known experiments where eventually-consistent NoSQL databases were scaled out to perform millions of inserts and queries. Here, we do the same using YSQL, YugabyteDB’s PostgreSQL-compatible, strongly-consistent, distributed SQL API. We created a 100-node YugabyteDB cluster, ran single-row INSERT and SELECT workloads with high concurrency – each for an hour and measured the sustained performance (throughput and latency). This post details the results of this experiment as well as highlights the key aspects of the YugabyteDB architecture that makes it fit for such high-volume ingest workloads.
