Why can’t cloud native apps use traditional databases?
Traditional databases fall short of the challenges of today’s cloud-native applications in terms of structure, storage and scalability. When cloud native applications rely on such traditional monolithic databases, it results in expensive trade-offs, slow innovation, complex operations and poor customer experience as they don’t have the requirements needed by the advanced apps.
DB Requirements for Modern Application
How does YugabyteDB match these requirements?
YugabyteDB is an open source software that offers distributed Database as a Service (DBaaS). Being open source, it gives a standard interface and leaves out the hassle of working with proprietary software. Other said DB requirements are met by YugabyteDB as it is ‘distributed’ offering fault tolerance with data replication.
As a cloud native database, it can be deployed across public, private and hybrid clouds.
Security and compliance with YugabyteDB.
YugabyteDB follows ‘sharding’ technology when it comes to data distribution and performance. It means that instead of the costlier vertical scaling in traditional databases, it follows horizontal scaling, where tables of data are split and spread across multiple nodes that are hosted on different servers (Inspired by Google Spanner). The shard of data on each node is called a tablet. High availability is achieved by replicating each tablet across multiple nodes, consistency is achieved through a process called RAFT Consensus. Thus even if a node crashes, data is not lost as it is available in the next shard.
