Thoughts on distributed databases, open source, and cloud native

Tutorial: Getting Started with YugabyteDB and Docker

When developing modern applications, it is important to maintain dev/prod parity (that is, keep development, staging, and production as similar as possible). This should also extend to the local development environment.  However, containerization makes it easy to achieve consistency across all environments, even with more complicated components such as databases.

YugabyteDB is a cloud-native, distributed SQL database that is also PostgreSQL compatible.

Getting Started with YugabyteDB, Temporal, and the Temporal-Maru Benchmarking Tool

“Does YugabyteDB integrate with temporal.io?” is a common question from developers. Temporal enables technologists to build highly reliable applications without having to worry about all the edge cases. Developers use Temporal not just because it is an open-source solution. They also use it to build workflows in code and operate resilient applications using developer-friendly primitives.

Temporal supports independent horizontal scaling of each of the Temporal Server services: Frontend,

Connecting a Spring Boot Application to Yugabyte Cloud and Deploying It to Kubernetes on minikube

Spring Boot is one of the most popular frameworks for building cloud native applications. It makes configuring an application easy and offers tons of starters to get you off the ground quickly. Each Spring Boot application is stand-alone and self-contained, which makes them easy to deploy in a distributed fashion – to containers or, even better, on Kubernetes.

Migrating MySQL to YugabyteDB Using pgloader

We understand that database migrations can be painful. We have helped users successfully migrate from MySQL to YugabyteDB, a PostgreSQL-compatible distributed SQL database. A very popular tool to accomplish this task is pgloader. In this post, we will cover how to migrate both your MySQL schema as well as data to YugabyteDB.

Prerequisites

Before starting the migration there are a few prerequisites you’ll need to address.
