Walk you through how to download and install the PostgreSQL-compatible version of Northwind on the YugabyteDB distributed SQL database.
We are excited to announce that YugabyteDB is now 100% open source under the Apache 2.0 license. This means previously closed-source, commercial, enterprise features such as Distributed Backups, Data Encryption, and Read Replicas are now available in the open source project and are completely free to use. 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.
We are very excited to announce the arrival of YugabyteDB 1.3. This post will outline some of the major milestones in this release.
Enterprise Features Move To Open Source
In this release, all the enterprise features in the core DB are now available in open source under the Apache 2.0 license! Effective v1.3, there is no more EE vs CE distinction, there is just one database with all the features you want.
New in 1.2: YugaByte SQL Beta 3
YugaByte SQL (YSQL) is our PostgreSQL v11 compatible, distributed SQL API. It is ideal for powering microservices that require low latency, internet scale, geographic data distribution and extreme resilience to failures but want the data modeling flexibility of SQL (joins,
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.
Team YugaByte is delighted to announce the general availability of YugabyteDB 1.0!
It has been an incredibly satisfying experience to, in just two years, build and launch a cloud-scale, transactional and high-performance database that’s already powering real-world production workloads. I wanted to take a moment to share our journey to 1.0 and the road ahead.
Modern user-facing applications are increasingly moving to a multi-region,
YugabyteDB is a transactional, high performance, geo-distributed operational database that converges multiple NoSQL and SQL interfaces into an unified solution. The v0.9 public beta of YugabyteDB includes the YCQL and YEDIS APIs that are compatible with Cassandra Query Language (CQL) and Redis APIs respectively. PostgreSQL-compatible YSQL API is under development. A fundamental design goal for YugabyteDB has been to provide the same transactional, performance and operational simplicity guarantees irrespective of the API used.
