How a Fortune 500 Retailer Weathered a Regional Cloud Outage with YugabyteDB

On the heels of an incredibly difficult 2020, my fellow Texans and I had the misfortune of experiencing a once-in-a-lifetime snowstorm. To be true, at the time, it felt like much more than a snowstorm. It wasn’t just snowfall in Texas. It was a snow-pocalypse.

However, once the storm settled, I explored how the rest of Texas had fared. I discovered some of the companies who run applications in production on YugabyteDB were also affected.

Multi-Cloud Distributed SQL: Avoiding Region Failure with YugabyteDB

As Amazon CTO Werner Vogels often reminds us: ”Everything fails, all the time”. This means any component of the infrastructure will fail at some point. However, with more and more software being deployed in the cloud, today’s infrastructure must provide redundancy. In addition, the applications that sit on top of it must provide continuity over failures.

This involves database replication when the failure concerns data in motion. But there are different levels of failures and different protection technologies.

Using GIN Indexes in YugabyteDB

At Yugabyte, we are committed to complete PostgreSQL compatibility. Similar to PostgreSQL, YugabyteDB supports the following three container column types. These three data types are extremely useful in various cases:

  • jsonb – Makes it useful for schema-less data use cases
  • tsvector – Supports full text search through a sorted list of distinct lexemes
  • array – Gives the flexibility to store a large composite variable-length value in a single field

Each data type’s utility is severely limited without an efficient way to index them.
