Getting Started with DbSchema on a Distributed SQL Database

Getting Started with DbSchema on a Distributed SQL Database

If you’re a database developer, you know the time saving value of being able to visually design, document and query SQL and NoSQL databases from a single UI. DbSchema is a well-rounded, visual database tool that supports over 40 databases from a single interface. Because YugabyteDB is PostgreSQL compatible, getting DBSchema to work with a distributed SQL database is relatively simple.

What’s YugabyteDB? It is an open source, high-performance distributed SQL database built on a scalable and fault-tolerant design inspired by Google Spanner.

Welcome to part two of a three-part series of posts on PostgreSQL’s table functions. These functions can be easily leveraged in a distributed SQL database like YugabyteDB, which is PostgreSQL compatible.

In part one I gave a brief introduction to PostgreSQL’s table functions. Part three will cover some realistic use cases. I’ll introduce this second post by quoting that paragraph:

Working with PostgreSQL Data Types in YugabyteDB

Working with PostgreSQL Data Types in YugabyteDB

In the world of databases, data types restrict what can be considered as valid values in a table’s column. For example, if we want a column to store only integer values, we can specify that the column be an int column. Enforcing what type of data can go into a column has the added benefit of helping with storage and in some cases, query performance.

Generically, SQL data types can be broadly divided into following categories.

Best Practices and Recommendations for Distributed SQL on Kubernetes

Best Practices and Recommendations for Distributed SQL on Kubernetes

YugabyteDB and Kubernetes have very complementary design principles because they both rely on an extensible and flexible API layer, as well as a scale-out architecture for performance and availability. In this blog post we’ll look at best practices and recommendations when choosing Kubernetes as the cluster foundation for a distributed SQL system. This will begin with a review of relevant architectural decisions of the YugabyteDB. Then we’ll walk you through how to handle the provisioning,

Why We Changed YugabyteDB Licensing to 100% Open Source

Why We Changed YugabyteDB Licensing to 100% Open Source

We are excited to announce that YugabyteDB is now 100% open source under the Apache 2.0 license.

The same applies to upcoming new features like Change Data Capture and 2 Data Center Deployments. The result of this change is that we no longer have a Community Edition and an Enterprise Edition of YugabyteDB.
