Enhanced automation, secure networking, faster scaling, and improved observability address the unique needs of business application developers
Yugabyte, the leading open source distributed SQL database company, today announced key updates to YugabyteDB Managed, including the launch of the YugabyteDB Managed Command Line Interface (CLI). The new CLI delivers a better developer experience by increasing productivity and allowing users to enjoy the benefits of automation without needing to learn new skills. Additionally, new integration with AWS PrivateLink, 2x faster scaling, and over 125 new observability metrics further enhance overall security and operations.
“At Yugabyte, we’re dedicated to empowering developers to focus on building without getting bogged down by database limitations,” said Karthik Ranganathan, CTO and co-founder, Yugabyte. “The launch of the YugabyteDB Managed CLI takes automation and productivity to the next level. Developers of all levels can easily create and manage clusters from their terminal or IDE and make use of the most advanced set of tools available for optimizing database performance and driving the business forward.”
YugabyteDB Managed CLI includes support for multiple platforms, open-source availability, easy installation and upgrading through the Homebrew package manager, built-in documentation, and auto-completion for commands and flags. The update provides automation for developers while allowing them to use their trusted and familiar environments.
The enhancement to YugabyteDB Managed includes the new CLI and a series of other new innovations that together allow users to:
- Enjoy enhanced automation with the YugabyteDB Managed CLI; Users can now create and manage clusters hosted in YugabyteDB Managed from their terminal or IDE without requiring REST API or Terraform skills. The auto-completion feature makes it easy for users to discover and use new features quickly. The YugabyteDB Managed CLI makes day-to-day tasks easier for everyone, from app developers, to database administrators and DevOps engineers, by simplifying how they interact with YugabyteDB Managed resources.
- Leverage enterprise-ready, secure networking with AWS PrivateLink support; available now as a preview, AWS PrivateLink is the latest addition to the range of network access management options. This feature is available for dedicated clusters created in YugabyteDB Managed on AWS (as an alternative to VPC peering) for secure access to your databases over a private network.
- Scale databases 2x faster with dynamic infrastructure resizing; YugabyteDB Managed is even more responsive with vertical scaling operations on dedicated clusters providing a 2x performance boost. Users can now rapidly adjust to dynamic business needs and always be ready for planned or unplanned spikes.
