What is YugabyteDB?

YugabyteDB is a high-performance, cloud-native distributed SQL database. Here are its salient points:

  • Has a pluggable query layer, and supports two distributed SQL APIs:
  • Automated sharding, Raft consensus replication and distributed transactions, based on the Google Spanner architecture
  • Offers horizontal write scalability, strong write consistency and tunable read consistency (strong reads by default with follower & observer reads as options)
  • Extremely resilient with native failover and repair - can tolerate disk, node, zone and region failures automatically
  • Supports geo-distributed deployments (multi-zone, multi-region, multi-cloud)
  • Built-in enterprise features such as distributed backups, in-flight/at-rest encryption and read replicas (for observer reads)
  • Can be deployed in public clouds and natively inside Kubernetes
  • Best fit for powering massively-scalable, globally-distributed, cloud-native applications that require absolute data correctness and high tolerance to failures
  • 100% open source under the Apache 2.0 license
