YugaByte Database Engineering Update – Nov 27, 2018

Lots has happened since our last engineering update about 3 months ago. Below are some of the highlights.

PostgreSQL API Updates & PostgresConf Silicon Valley Wrap-Up

We have made a lot of progress on YSQL, the PostgreSQL compatible distributed SQL API for YugabyteDB! You can also read about YSQL architecture which covers how distributed SQL is implemented in YugabyteDB.

We were at the first ever PostgresConf Silicon Valley in October 2018.

Benchmarking an 18 Terabyte YugabyteDB Cluster with High Density Data Nodes

Benchmarking an 18 Terabyte YugabyteDB Cluster with High Density Data Nodes

For ever-growing data workloads such as time series metrics and IoT sensor events, running a highly dense database cluster where each node stores terabytes of data makes perfect sense from a cost efficiency standpoint. If we are spinning up new data nodes only to get more storage-per-node, then there is a significant wastage of expensive compute resources. However, running multi-terabyte data nodes with Apache Cassandra as well as other Cassandra-compatible databases (such as DataStax Enterprise) is not an option.

What is the Apache Cassandra Database?

Apache Cassandra is a distributed open source database that can be referred to as a “NoSQL database” or a “wide column store.” Cassandra was originally developed at Facebook to power its “Inbox” feature and was released as an open source project in 2008. Cassandra is designed to handle “big data” workloads by distributing data, reads and writes (eventually) across multiple nodes with no single point of failure.
