Java Development: How Applications Litter Beyond the Heap

Java Development: How Applications Litter Beyond the Heap

In Java development, garbage collection is a routine task. Applications generate garbage all the time. And that garbage is meticulously cleaned out by CMS, G1, Azul C4 and other types of collectors. Basically, our applications are born to bring value to this world, but nothing is perfect—including our applications that leave litter in the Java heap.

However, the story doesn’t end with the Java heap. In fact, it only starts there. Let’s take the example of a basic Java application that uses a relational database—such as PostgreSQL—and solid state drives (SSDs) as a storage device.

YugabyteDB and Red Hat OpenShift: Resilient Kubernetes Workloads at Scale

YugabyteDB and Red Hat OpenShift: Resilient Kubernetes Workloads at Scale

Kubernetes has become widely adopted in the Fortune 500. Many companies are now using the platform to run stateless and stateful applications on-premises or as hybrid cloud deployments in production. Of course, with any new technology, there are growing pains when running resilient Kubernetes workloads. But most executives and developers agree that the benefits far outweigh the challenges.

Data on the Kubernetes ecosystem is evolving rapidly with the rise of stateful applications. However,

Using Ebean ORM with YugabyteDB

Using Ebean ORM with YugabyteDB

Ebean is a Java-based Object–Relational Mapping (ORM) application. It is more user-friendly and understandable than traditional ORM tools, such as Hibernate. It achieves this by employing a session-less design that eliminates the concepts of detached/attached beans as well as the difficulties related with flushing/clearing.

Even better, Ebean supports YugabyteDB, a 100% open source, distributed SQL database built to accelerate cloud native agility, lower costs, and reduce risks without vendor lock-in.

Five Benefits to Running a Distributed SQL Database in Kubernetes

Five Benefits to Running a Distributed SQL Database in Kubernetes

A distributed SQL database is a single logical relational database deployed on a cluster of servers. The database automatically replicates and distributes data across multiple servers. These databases are strongly consistent and support consistency across availability and geographic zones in the cloud.

At a minimum, a distributed SQL database has the following characteristics:

  • A SQL API for accessing and manipulating data and objects
  • Automatic distribution of data across nodes in a cluster
  • Automatic replication of data in a strongly consistent manner
  • Support for distributed query execution so clients do not need to know about the underlying distribution of data
  • Support for distributed ACID transactions

But should you run a distributed SQL database in Kubernetes?

Securing YugabyteDB: Part 2 – Client-to-Server Encryption in Transit

Securing YugabyteDB: Part 2 – Client-to-Server Encryption in Transit

In the first post in this series, we covered how to secure YugabyteDB’s internal RPC protocol using the TLS encryption protocol, also referred to as server-to-server encryption in transit. In this post, we secure the communication between SQL clients and the PostgresQL query interface of YugabyteDB, also called client-to-server encryption in transit. 

YugabyteDB—a 100% open source, distributed SQL database built to accelerate cloud native agility—stores important user and customer data at an organization.

Automation Workflows: Using GitOps for YugabyteDB with Argo CD and Helm

Automation Workflows: Using GitOps for YugabyteDB with Argo CD and Helm

GitOps is an operational framework for declarative-driven systems such as Kubernetes. More specifically, it provides a set of best practices that converge the runtime state of the services with the declarative state defined in Git. On the other hand, Argo CD is a declarative, continuous delivery tool for Kubernetes. Argo CD follows the GitOps pattern of using Git repositories as the source of truth for defining the desired application state. Both tools can be used for automation workflows.
