Evaluating PostgreSQL Compatibility in Distributed SQL Databases
Compatibility with a widely-adopted SQL API is no longer an option for distributed SQL databases. Just recently, Google Spanner announced support for PostgreSQL, validating the importance of such compatibility. However, leading distributed SQL databases have taken radically different approaches to the topic. This has major implications for developers and the modern applications they are building.
Join Yugabyte Co-Founder and CTO Karthik Ranganathan for an in-depth discussion of key criteria every developer can use to evaluate PostgreSQL compatibility in distributed SQL databases. We’ll examine the degree of compatibility across four databases: Google Spanner, Amazon Aurora, CockroachDB, and YugabyteDB.
You’ll also explore:
- Practical tips for selecting the best database for your application
- The different approaches to PostgreSQL compatibility
- How each approach impacts the degree of compatibility
- Why these differences matter when building real-world, modern applications
