Distributed PostgreSQL on a Google Spanner Architecture – Query Layer

Our previous post dived into the details of the storage layer of YugabyteDB called DocDB, a distributed document store inspired by Google Spanner. This post focuses on Yugabyte SQL (YSQL), a distributed, highly resilient, PostgreSQL-compatible SQL API layer powered by DocDB. A follow-up post will highlight the challenges faced and lessons learned when engineering such a database.

Distributed PostgreSQL on a Google Spanner Architecture – Storage Layer

In this post, we’ll dive into the architecture of the distributed storage layer of YugabyteDB, which is inspired by Google Spanner’s design. Our subsequent post covers the Query Layer, where the storage layer meets PostgreSQL as the SQL API. Finally, here is a follow-up post that highlights the key technical challenges we faced while engineering a distributed SQL database like YugabyteDB.

Logical Architecture

YugabyteDB is comprised of two logical layers,
