Working with PostgreSQL Data Types in YugabyteDB

Working with PostgreSQL Data Types in YugabyteDB

In the world of databases, data types restrict what can be considered as valid values in a table’s column. For example, if we want a column to store only integer values, we can specify that the column be an int column. Enforcing what type of data can go into a column has the added benefit of helping with storage and in some cases, query performance.

Generically, SQL data types can be broadly divided into following categories.

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.

How to: PostgreSQL Fuzzy String Matching In YugabyteDB

How to: PostgreSQL Fuzzy String Matching In YugabyteDB

Before analyzing a large dataset that contains textual information, it’s important to scrub it and eliminate duplicates when necessary. To remove duplicates, you may need to compare strings referring to the same thing, but that may be written slightly different, have typos or were misspelled. Alternatively, you might need to join two tables on a column (let’s say on company name), and these can appear slightly different in both tables.

Fuzzy String Matching (or Approximate String Matching) is the process of finding strings that approximately match a pattern.

Getting Started with PostgreSQL Triggers in a Distributed SQL Database

Getting Started with PostgreSQL Triggers in a Distributed SQL Database

Triggers are a basic feature that all monolithic SQL systems like Oracle, SQL Server and PostgreSQL have supported for many years. They are very useful in a variety of scenarios ranging from simple audit logging, to advanced tasks like updating remote databases in a federated cluster. In this blog, we’ll look at examples of INSERT, UPDATE and INSTEAD OF triggers in Yugabyte DB.

What’s Yugabyte DB? It is an open source, high-performance distributed SQL database built on a scalable and fault-tolerant design inspired by Google Spanner.

The Effect of Isolation Levels on Distributed SQL Performance Benchmarking

The Effect of Isolation Levels on Distributed SQL Performance Benchmarking

This post addresses a concern raised about a benchmarking result we recently published comparing the performance of YugabyteDB, Amazon Aurora and CockroachDB. It was pointed out that we unfairly used the default isolation level for each database rather than use serializable isolation level in all databases (even though serializable level was not required for these workloads). In addition, we are also happy to share additional results with the workloads run at YugabyteDB’s serializable isolation level.

PostgreSQL Compatibility in YugabyteDB 2.0

PostgreSQL Compatibility in YugabyteDB 2.0

The team at Yugabyte and members of the community were excited to announce the general availability of YugabyteDB 2.0 this week. One of the flagship features of the release was the production readiness of the PostgreSQL compatible, Yugabyte SQL API (YSQL). In other blogs we covered Jepsen testing results, new performance benchmarks and ecosystem integrations including the GraphQL projects Hasura and Prisma. In this post we’d like to take the opportunity to dive a little deeper into the PostgreSQL compatibility features to demonstrate what’s supported and what’s around the corner.

Getting Started with TablePlus on a Distributed SQL Database

Getting Started with TablePlus on a Distributed SQL Database

If you’re a database developer, you already understand the importance of a tool to manage your databases. Whether it is for creating schemas, ad-hoc querying, backups, or diving deeper to troubleshoot a database issue, a database tool can make your life much easier and increase your productivity. In a previous posts we covered how to get started with DBeaver, PGAdmin, and SQL Workbench/J. in this post we’ll show you how to get up and running with YugabyteDB and TablePlus.
