Yugabyte Enhances Cluster Replication

Yugabyte has released a new version of its cloud-native distributed SQL database, along with improvements to Yugabyte Managed.

YugabyteDB supports all PostgreSQL features., and is designed for cloud-native OLTP applications that need scalability, high tolerance to failures, or globally-distributed deployments.


The company was founded in 2016 by former Facebook software engineers who developed YugabyteDB as a cloud-native database that can serve both scale-out and internet-scale OLTP workloads with low query latency, extreme resilience against failures, and global data distribution.

The developers say YugabyteDB 2.17 has enhanced xCluster replication. YugabyteDB xCluster provides asynchronous replication, and ensures data consistency on each cluster and the order in which data changes are applied to the standby cluster.

YugabyteDB 2.17 also introduces a new backup architecture where each node sends its data directly to the backup target in parallel to eliminate bottlenecks and ensuring backup scales with deployment size. Restore is handled similarly. The team says this new scalable architecture allows each node to deliver up to a five times improvement in backup and restore times compared to previous versions. Support has also been added for incremental backups, and for point in time restoration.

Improvements for developers include expanded KMS choices that include Google and Azure in addition to HashiCorp Vault and AWS KMS.

YugabyteDB Managed has also been updated. It was first released last year, and the updated release adds self-service geo-partitioning to let companies comply with regulations such as GDPR. Support has also been added for the creation of read replicas in YugabyteDB Managed, and there's a better Terraform provider that automates deployment of YugabyteDB Managed clusters.

YugabyteDB 2.17 is available now.
