Yugabyte, an open source distributed SQL database company, has released new product features with the availability of YugabyteDB 2.17 and major enhancements to YugabyteDB Managed.

The latest releases address the database needs of mission-critical applications, offering the data protection, global deployment, and streamlined usability enterprises need to accelerate their modernization initiatives.

Enterprises know that reliable and robust data is essential to meet high customer expectations and stay ahead of the competition. On top of that, embracing automation and streamlining usability are required to accelerate developer productivity and decrease time to new offerings and value-added services.

YugabyteDB 2.17 introduces key innovations to help power an enterprise’s business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) strategy. This release introduces new APIs for xCluster to support planned and unplanned failovers. In addition, YugabyteDB Anywhere simplifies the challenges of data protection with built-in support and controls for Yugabyte’s unique xCluster Replication technology. It delivers geo-aware data protection and faster backups than the previous release.

To accelerate developer productivity, enterprises can now embrace YugabyteDB Managed for distributed enterprise applications without the complexity and costs of managing the infrastructure or the database. New enhancements help meet regional compliance requirements by providing simplified self-service geo-partitioning, improved customer experience with low latency access through read replicas, and reduced friction to getting started with confidence through a new free trial of production clusters.

“Organizations looking to modernize new and existing core transactional applications need to move away from costly monolithic databases, but barriers to enterprise- readiness [such as] data protection, security, and usability can block the way,” said Karthik Ranganathan, co-founder and CTO, Yugabyte. “YugabyteDB 2.17 removes key obstacles to database modernization. It empowers organizations with a host of new benefits unmatched in both legacy and many modern databases, putting developer productivity at the core.”

The enhancements and features available give users:

  • Simplified BCDR through YugabyteDB Anywhere with built-in support for streamlined xCluster replication deployment and management
  • Fast, geo-aware data protection of a wider set of business-critical applications with faster backup and restore times and more frequent backups
  • Granular, microsecond data recovery with more accessible point-in-time- recovery (PITR) through a few clicks in YugabyteDB Anywhere
  • Reduced total cost of ownership with simplified operations and advanced automation through YugabyteDB Managed multicloud DBaaS
  • Accelerated developer productivity with enhanced usability, new observability enhancements, and PostgreSQL-compatibility
