TPC-C Benchmark: 10,000 Warehouses on YugabyteDB

TPC-C Benchmark: 10,000 Warehouses on YugabyteDB

We are excited to announce that the TPC-C benchmark implementation for YugabyteDB is now open source and ready to use! While this implementation is not officially ratified by the TPC organization, it closely follows the TPC-C v5.11.0 specification.

For those new to TPC-C, the aim of the benchmark is to test how a database performs when handling transactions generated by a real-world OLTP application. This blog post shows the results of running the TPC-C benchmark in addition to outlining our experience of developing and running a TPC-C benchmark against YugabyteDB.

Polymorphism in SQL part one – anyelement and anyarray

Polymorphism in SQL part one – anyelement and anyarray

The term “polymorphism”, and its inflections, has various meanings in the context of programming languages in general. Roughly, it means “chameleon-like”.

PostgreSQL uses it with this meaning: “Parametric polymorphism: when one or more types are not specified by name but by… symbols that can represent any type”.

The term “variadic” has a universal meaning,

Four Data Sharding Strategies We Analyzed in Building a Distributed SQL Database

Four Data Sharding Strategies We Analyzed in Building a Distributed SQL Database

A distributed SQL database needs to automatically partition the data in a table and distribute it across nodes. This is known as data sharding and it can be achieved through different strategies, each with its own tradeoffs. In this post, we will examine various data sharding strategies for a distributed SQL database, analyze the tradeoffs, explain the rationale for which of these strategies YugabyteDB supports and what we picked as the default sharding strategy.
