Best Distributed SQL Books for a Cloud Native World

Monolithic SQL databases have limitations that pose a major risk for cloud-native applications that require continuous availability and scalability. Distributed SQL databases exist on multiple servers, allowing them to scale horizontally for increased workloads and transfer workloads in the case of outages.

To the cloud applications and to the developers creating those applications there is no difference between SQL and distributed SQL. There is simply the language of SQL.  Check out our library of distributed SQL and SQL books to learn more.
