Is Your Distributed Database PostgreSQL Compatible, and Why Does This Matter?

Most companies now realize that compatibility with a widely adopted SQL API is essential to ensure the success of their modern distributed SQL databases.

But, there are many SQL database options available and each one takes a different approach to PostgreSQL compatibility. This can have major implications for the developers and applications leveraging these databases.

In this on-demand webinar, Yugabyte CTO and Co-Founder Karthik Ranganathan discusses the key criteria you can use to evaluate PostgreSQL compatibility.

Karthik applies a comparison framework to analyze four major distributed SQL databases:

  • Google Spanner
  • Amazon Aurora
  • CockroachDB
  • YugabyteDB

He also examines key aspects of PostgreSQL compatibility within each database, including features, code, and interface, as well as the overall architecture.
