Better Developer Experience: Getting Started with YugabyteDB on Gitpod

Better Developer Experience: Getting Started with YugabyteDB on Gitpod

Developer onboarding and experience gets simplified every day. But while developers use many modern software development techniques—including 12-factor, cloud native, and continuous integration—developer onboarding remains a challenge. Therefore, what developers need is an integrated, self-contained platform that helps them get started with ease. 

Gitpod is one such way we can steer into that problem space to create a better developer experience. More specifically, Gitpod provides git-based, fully automated, integrated cloud-native development workflows with the prerequisites configured.

Database Connection Management: Exploring Pools and Performance

Database Connection Management: Exploring Pools and Performance

There are many secrets to creating a high-performing database application. One such secret is proper database connection management. However, this secret is not specific to YugabyteDB or PostgreSQL, but applies to any database.

In this post, we examine database connection management through the lens of YugabyteDB. We explore pools and performance, and run tests to measure the results. By the end of this post, you’ll have a clear sense of how to make efficient use of database connection management.

TPC-C Benchmark: Scaling YugabyteDB to 100,000 Warehouses

We’re excited to announce a new milestone in our TPC-C benchmark journey! YugabyteDB can now scale up to 100,000 warehouses with an efficiency of 99.78%. More specifically, this results in 630,000 operations per second on the database cluster, observed over a two-hour period.

For those new to TPC-C, it’s an OLTP system benchmarking tool used to measure performance when handling transactions generated by a real-world OLTP application. It models a business that has a warehouse,

Securing YugabyteDB: Part 1 – Server-to-Server Encryption in Transit

Securing YugabyteDB: Part 1 – Server-to-Server Encryption in Transit

Encryption in transit is a common requirement for client-to-server communication. It is particularly important for YugabyteDB, a 100% open source, distributed SQL database built to accelerate cloud native agility. YugabyteDB typically stores important user and customer data at an organization.

In this ongoing blog series, we take a look at the different aspects of encryption in transit for YugabyteDB. This first post will focus on encryption in transit for the database’s internal RPC communication protocol,

A Matter of Time: Evolving Clock Sync for Distributed Databases

A Matter of Time: Evolving Clock Sync for Distributed Databases

Distributed clock synchronization is critical for many applications, including distributed SQL databases. Clock synchronization needs to keep up with the other demands in our modern infrastructure, such as:

  • Applications that have increasing performance requirements while distributing data across different geographic regions
  • Network infrastructure and computing power that is improving constantly

A distributed SQL database is highly available and resilient to failures when deployed across a cluster of nodes.

YugabyteDB Savepoints: Checkpointing Work in Distributed Transactions

YugabyteDB Savepoints: Checkpointing Work in Distributed Transactions

Yugabyte brings best-in-class performance, scalability, and availability to YugabyteDB, a fully PostgreSQL-compatible SQL database. Because YugabyteDB’s architecture uses PostgreSQL at the SQL layer, we get a long-tail of PostgreSQL compatibility for free. But implementing savepoints requires deeper integration into YugabyteDB’s distributed persistence and transaction layers. 

In this blog post, we’ll discuss why you should care about savepoints. We’ll also examine how we built savepoints into YugabyteDB’s distributed transaction layer,
