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.

Recapping My Internship at Yugabyte – Jayden Navarro

It was a warm day in early October, and two large white tents occupied the lawn that sits between the Gates, Hewlett, and Packard buildings. Companies pasted the word “AI” in big bold letters across their banners, and students formed long lines, resumes in-hand, eager to learn about the Next Big Thing and how often the company cafeteria serves Poké.

Six months prior I had made the decision to leave my comfortable job as a Software Engineer in the networking industry and pursue a Masters degree in Computer Science at Stanford,
