Celebrating Significant Growth Milestones in YugabyteDB’s Community!

The YugabyteDB community is at the heart of everything we do at Yugabyte. The worldwide community of open source enthusiasts, application builders, and database aficionados has been a fountain of inspiration, knowledge, and belonging for us. Here are some community highlights we’d love to call out.

Over 5K Users in YugabyteDB Community Slack

We planned to celebrate when we reached 5,000 YugabyteDB Community Slack members. But then we blinked and realized we were already over 5,500!

Using GORM with YugabyteDB

Using GORM with YugabyteDB

GORM is an Object Relational Mapping (ORM) library for Golang. ORM converts data between incompatible type systems using object-oriented programming languages. An ORM library is a library that implements this technique and provides an object-oriented layer between relational databases and object-oriented programming languages.

In this blog post, we’ll show you how to:

  • Start a YugabyteDB cluster on your local Engine.
  • Download GORM and configure the sample project.
  • Create a simple Go application to run GORM with YugabyteDB.

The Power of a Modern Database: YugabyteDB and VMware Tanzu

The Power of a Modern Database: YugabyteDB and VMware Tanzu

As global companies engage in app modernization initiatives, their developers find it increasingly difficult to match those efforts with a strong data layer. These developers continue to work with costly monolithic databases like Oracle or DB2 and NoSQL databases that forgo strong data consistency and important relational features. But it’s clear a modern database is required to match the ambition of app modernization.

That’s where the YugabyteDB and VMware Tanzu story comes in.

How to Set Up a Scalable and Highly-Available GraphQL API in Minutes

How to Set Up a Scalable and Highly-Available GraphQL API in Minutes

A modern GraphQL API layer for cloud native applications needs to possess two characteristics: horizontal scalability and high availability.

Horizontal scalability adds more machines to your API infrastructure, whereas vertical scalability adds more CPUs, RAM, and other resources to an existing machine that runs the API layer. While vertical scalability works to a certain extent, the horizontally scalable API layer can scale beyond the capacity of a single machine.

When it comes to high availability,

Retail Application Migration: Lessons Learned Moving from On-Prem to Cloud Native

Retail Application Migration: Lessons Learned Moving from On-Prem to Cloud Native

Recently, I came across a sample e-commerce application that demonstrates how to use Next.js, GraphQL engine, PostgreSQL, and a few other frameworks to build a modern web application. The application supports basic e-commerce capabilities such as product inventory and order management, recommendation system, and checkout function. This made me curious as to how much effort it would take to complete a retail application migration from an on-premise to cloud native solution. So I decided to try.

Using Ebean ORM with YugabyteDB

Using Ebean ORM with YugabyteDB

Ebean is a Java-based Object–Relational Mapping (ORM) application. It is more user-friendly and understandable than traditional ORM tools, such as Hibernate. It achieves this by employing a session-less design that eliminates the concepts of detached/attached beans as well as the difficulties related with flushing/clearing.

Even better, Ebean supports YugabyteDB, a 100% open source, distributed SQL database built to accelerate cloud native agility, lower costs, and reduce risks without vendor lock-in.

Five Benefits to Running a Distributed SQL Database in Kubernetes

Five Benefits to Running a Distributed SQL Database in Kubernetes

A distributed SQL database is a single logical relational database deployed on a cluster of servers. The database automatically replicates and distributes data across multiple servers. These databases are strongly consistent and support consistency across availability and geographic zones in the cloud.

At a minimum, a distributed SQL database has the following characteristics:

  • A SQL API for accessing and manipulating data and objects
  • Automatic distribution of data across nodes in a cluster
  • Automatic replication of data in a strongly consistent manner
  • Support for distributed query execution so clients do not need to know about the underlying distribution of data
  • Support for distributed ACID transactions

But should you run a distributed SQL database in Kubernetes?
