We will look at how YugabyteDB plus Tencent Cloud helps these games tackle future gaming trends such as metaverse and cloud gaming, as well as meeting globalization requirements.
As a distributed PostgreSQL-compatible database, YugabyteDB has a ton of similarities and a few differences when compared to open-source Postgres. YugabyteDB does behave and look like Postgres in runtime which allows you to reuse most optimization techniques you’ve already mastered with Postgres. At the same time, YugabyteDB is a distributed database that can store your data across multiple geographies and use thousands of CPUs distributed across hundreds of nodes which requires you to consider query tuning patterns specific to distributed systems.
The tuning of a SQL database for your workloads is an art on its own. First and foremost, you need to design your data model and overall application logic to ensure the database objects are stored and accessed efficiently. Inefficient data access, such as sequential scans of a growing table, can lead to hardware and other resource requirements that can grow astronomically in order to maintain adequate performance.
The infrastructure of major cloud providers and private data centers can span dozens of geographical regions. With this infrastructure, you can quickly design and build solutions that run across regions, countries, and continents for reliability, compliance, and performance.
Learn the language features of YCQL and discover the benefits of semi-relational data types, user-defined data types, built-in functions, secondary indexes, and query-driven data model design.
In this virtual training, you’ll first learn that Yugabyte Cloud Query Language (YCQL) is a Cassandra compatible API, using both Data Definition Language (DDL) and Data Manipulation Language (DML) to create tables and queries. Next, you’ll explore the benefits of query-driven data model design for YugabyteDB and YCQL. You’ll also learn how to test and tune a denormalized data model in order to perform at global scale. Students that successfully complete this training will be automatically enrolled in the related exam courses.
From PostgreSQL compatibility to row-level geo-partitioning, dive into the robust features of YSQL in this virtual training.
In this virtual training, you begin by learning that Yugabyte Structured Query Language (YSQL) is a fully-relational API with the highest degree of PostgreSQL compatibility. You’ll discover how YSQL supports both Data Definition Language (DDL) and Data Manipulation Language (DML) for PostgreSQL. Next, you’ll dive deeper into more advanced compatibility features including column constraints, indexes, views, expressions, operators, built-in functions, user-defined functions, and triggers. Finally, we’ll cover the more advanced features of YSQL, including table partitioning, tablespaces, and row-level geo-partitioning. Upon completion, students will be automatically enrolled in the related exam courses.
Learn how to install and administer a YugabyteDB cluster for on-premises, cloud, and Kubernetes deployments.
Bring your curiosity and join us as we dig into the fundamentals of YugabyteDB for database administrators. In this training, you will learn about how to install, create, and manage a YugabyteDB cluster for a variety of deployments: on-premises, cloud provider, and Kubernetes. Ideal for both database and systems administrators, this course covers security and database operations. Experience with structured data, relational database systems, SQL, and Bash shell scripting is helpful, but not required. Additional knowledge of various cloud providers and Kubernetes is beneficial. When you complete this training, you will be automatically enrolled in the course exam.
