Future-proof your database strategy with YugabyteDB – Manila Newsletter
At the heart of the software is a database, and the database game has changed: it is no longer the big that beats the small, but rather the fast that beats the slow. Sustainability of your database strategy is now the name of the game according to Dennis Sze, South Asia Director for Yugabyte at the recent CXO Innovation Summit hosted by VST ECS Phils. Inc.
The ongoing pandemic is pushing companies to adopt applicable technology trends in their respective fields, which includes the use of cloud native applications, the move to the cloud, and the modernization of their existing database systems.
YugabyteDB is a high-performance, PostgreSQL-compatible distributed SQL database built using a unique combination of a document store, shared distributed consensus replication, and ACID (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, and Durability) transactions. ) Multi-shared serving both scale over RDBMS and Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) workloads across the Internet. As a cloud-native database, YugabyteDB can be deployed easily in public and private clouds, as well as in Kubernetes environments.
On the other hand, acting as a transactional database, the system brings together four (04) essential needs of native cloud applications: SQL (a flexible query language), low latency performance, continuous availability and distributed scalability in the whole world – something that most database systems do not all serve simultaneously.
With virtually all businesses going digital in the next three (03) to five (05) years, it is only a matter of time for them to realize that their database systems and approaches legacy are no longer good enough to remain competitive.
âThe time to modernize is now. The future is already here; it’s just not evenly distributed. In the software world, the playing field is level: the little ones can beat the big ones, and it all depends on how you cope. Software is the key to the digital future, âsaid Sze.
In addition to all the features of YugabyteDB, it is 100% open source (based on the Apache 2.0 license) – something the company sees as an advantage in capturing a larger market in the Philippines. With the public cloud now the gold standard for online services, the maturity of database services over time has become a more important factor for companies to migrate as early as possible rather than considering the implications in terms of costs as a barrier from the customer’s point of view. .
With businesses wanting the maximum flexibility and portability to run on any infrastructure without being stuck, database developers are simply embracing open source technologies.
âOver the past ten years people have learned a lot and realized that by using closed source software they find themselves in a situation where it is very expensive to move. Open source paved the way – almost everything is now based on open source for resilience. The open source momentum has determined how people will build the future of software, how the cloud will work, and how ecosystems will change, âSze added.
As part of their commitment to the open source community, the Philippines user group YugabyteDB [https://www.meetup.com/philippines-yugabytedb-user-group/] has hosted online events for developers who want to learn more about the database system and the benefits it can bring to their respective organizations.
