Why I Joined Yugabyte

Hi. I’m Gavin. I joined Yugabyte on May 24, 2021, as the product marketer for Yugabyte Cloud.

The YugabyteDB Vagrant Box

After reaching this threshold the physical data will begin to move from the dead node to other nodes in the cluster.

When I first started my graduate studies in databases in 2012, I remember reading a freshly-minted paper that was making big waves in the DB community: Spanner: Google’s Globally-Distributed Database. I remember being blown away by the scale of the problems being tackled. Synchronizing a globally-distributed database while maintaining a usable transaction latency seemed an impossible task, one that comes with challenges that only exist on the global scale. As a naive grad student,
