SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–June 28, 2022–

yugabytethe leading open source distributed SQL database company, today announced the general availability of YugabyteDB 2.15 and introduced a new service, YugabyteDB Voyager.

YugabyteDB 2.15 gives engineering and operations teams a unified platform to run all of their business-critical transactional applications effortlessly. YugabyteDB Voyager, the new cloud database migration service, accelerates cloud-native adoption by making the move to a distributed database simple and efficient. YugabyteDB 2.15 and Voyager represent the most extensive updates to the database since their initial release.

Application modernization and the move to cloud-native architectures are putting pressure on traditional systems of record built with legacy database solutions. While database technologies have evolved to optimize particular workloads and access patterns, the needs of modern applications do not fit into these silos. Business applications typically mix SQL and NoSQL access, small and large table database structures, private and public cloud deployments, and single and multi-tenant requirements.

YugabyteDB 2.15 offers dynamic workload optimization that enables organizations to effortlessly deploy and run the widest range of cloud-native transactional applications in a single consolidated database, with predictable performance.

“Yugabyte brings exceptional technology performance, scale and resiliency to our partnership,” said Tony Coleman, CTO of Temenos. “Coupled with its unmatched global database expertise and service capabilities, YugabyteDB was a perfect fit for our vision of the future of our cloud-based technology proposition.”

As organizations continue to embrace the public cloud for their applications, migrating business-critical data to cloud-native databases remains one of the biggest barriers to accelerating cloud adoption. YugabyteDB Voyager offers a powerful migration engine that helps effortlessly migrate critical data from legacy on-premises or cloud databases to a multi-cloud distributed data structure powered by YugabyteDB. The engine helps organizations streamline the move to a distributed cloud-native environment by managing the entire database migration lifecycle, from cluster preparation to schema and data migration.

In addition to introducing YugabyteDB Voyager, YugabyteDB 2.15 offers new innovations in three key areas:

  • Dynamic workload optimization enables organizations to cover the widest range of existing and new transactional workloads with a single, unified database. New features in this category include application-aware dynamic sharding, improved quality of service (QoS), and multi-tenant support.
  • Improved developer productivity streamlines the way developers build applications or port existing applications to a distributed SQL database with capabilities like READ_COMMITTED isolation with pessimistic locking, enhanced Change Data Capture (CDC), support for PostgreSQL language extensions, and an expanded ecosystem that includes Prism, GORM and Django. Yugabyte is the first and only distributed SQL vendor to offer all three PostgreSQL isolation levels, making it much easier to move existing applications to a distributed database and leverage what developers already know given the ubiquity of PostgreSQL.
  • Performance at any scale it can be achieved with features like Yugabyte’s new built-in performance advisor that offers performance analysis and personalized recommendations and up to 20x faster data loading performance with packed columns and an optimized COPY command.

“We created YugabyteDB with the goal of simplifying the data tier for cloud-native applications,” said Karthik Ranganathan, Co-Founder and CTO of Yugabyte. “Simplicity in today’s demanding business environments is being able to run an ever-increasing variety of diverse workloads on any cloud in the world with enterprise-class scale, performance, and availability. YugabyteDB 2.15 is our most feature-rich version since its release, reinforcing YugabyteDB as a best-in-class database for both enterprise and cloud-born startups. YugabyteDB Voyager further breaks down barriers in the data layer that often make the journey to the cloud difficult or complicated.”
