Developers and DBAs widely use SQL editors to design database schemas, write ad hoc queries, troubleshoot, and manage the security policies and database users. For these reasons, it is essential for us as builders of YugabyteDB to bring native integration with popular database tools like DBeaver.

If you are following the YugabyteDB project and our blog posts, you’ll know YugabyteDB currently supports two APIs — YSQL and YCQL (NoSQL) — for querying the database. The DBeaver Community and Enterprise editions already have support for YSQL, which you can learn about in this blog post. …

GraphQL provides a query language for APIs, giving UX developers autonomy over querying APIs and the database.

The advantages of using GraphQL for UX applications are well understood. GraphQL clients can retrieve only the data needed in the UI application. GraphQL provides a strong type system that avoids manual code parsing and data filtering that takes up precious processing cycles when rendering the UI to users. Additionally, GraphQL increases UX development’s velocity, and the feedback cycles needed for designing API responses are minimized.

For cloud native API developers, factors like GraphQL query performance, handling infrastructure outages, and scalability of GraphQL…


Introduction to Serverless Applications

Serverless applications allow developers to run code without having to provision or manage any servers; developers can just concentrate on implementing the business logic of their applications.

As workloads move to the cloud, serverless applications are gaining tremendous popularity with developers. Serverless frameworks allow developers to program for the cloud to take advantage of elastic scaling for workloads and provide cost benefits of using pay-for-use features, only getting billed for compute time they consume. Google search trends have shown that searches for the word “Serverless” have outgrown the historic peak reached by the searches for the word “Map Reduce” […


We are happy to announce that the YugabyteDB Operator is now certified and available as a Beta release on Red Hat OpenShift, a leading enterprise Kubernetes platform for deploying and managing cloud native applications. Achieving certification means that customers can deploy YugabyteDB on OpenShift with confidence because the YugabyteDB container image has been secured, validated, and is well-integrated to run on OpenShift. And the solution is backed by collaborative support between Red Hat and Yugabyte, so enterprises can easily reach out for help and guidance along the way.

YugabyteDB brings support for both scale-out RDBMS and internet-scale OLTP workloads onto…

VMware Tanzu, the newest offering from VMware’s stable of proven enterprise products, brings together a portfolio of open source projects for modernizing applications and automating infrastructure management. VMware Tanzu provides a managed Kubernetes environment on VMware vSphere or any public cloud of choice that allows a consistent way to provision and deploy the code for application developers.

The Yugabyte team collaborated with VMware to certify YugabyteDB for Tanzu Kubernetes environments, and we are happy to announce the availability of YugabyteDB in the Tanzu Marketplace. As the first distributed SQL database on Tanzu Marketplace, YugabyteDB provides application developers an easy and…


In 2016 in the keynote presentation of Spring One Platform, Juergen Hoeller announced Spring WebFlux, one of the most highly anticipated projects being worked on by the Spring Team due to the performance gains that reactive streams promised for web controllers. Subsequently, with Spring Framework 5.0, Spring Reactive MVC went GA along with the release of WebFlux API, making the reactive stream based web controller mainstream.

Fast-forward to 2020, Spring WebFlux MVC has gained wide adoption in cloud native applications, where developers strive for high throughput and low latency microservices. Clearly there has been a shift towards the reactive programming…
