Using Envoy Proxy’s PostgreSQL & TCP Filters to Collect Yugabyte SQL Statistics

Layer 7 proxies like NGINX and HAProxy have been popular since the mid-2000s.

Getting Started with Hasura GraphQL Remote JOINs on Multi-Cloud Distributed SQL

Remote Joins in Hasura GraphQL extend the concept of joining data across tables, to being able to join data across tables and remote data sources. In this blog post we are going to demonstrate this capability by configuring the following set up.

  • A 3 node YugabyteDB cluster running on GKE with a Hasura GraphQL Engine attached
  • A 3 node YugabyteDB cluster running on AKS with a Hasura GraphQL Engine attached
  • A Remote Schema and Remote Relationship configured
  • The ability to issue GraphQL queries that join data from two different databases,

Run the REST Version of Spring PetClinic with Angular and Distributed SQL on GKE

Java developers know that Spring Data makes it easy to use data access technologies, relational and non-relational databases, map-reduce frameworks, and cloud-based data services. When YugabyteDB is combined with Spring, Java developers are able to leverage their familiarity with PostgreSQL while gaining the added benefits of Distributed SQL. These “out-of-the-box” benefits include geo-data distribution, high performance, and horizontal scalability,
