YugabyteDB Managed adds managed command line interface
Published on march 30, 2023
Yugabyte’s open source distributed SQL database has been updated to support AWS PrivateLink, improve observability, and scale faster.
Yugabyte announced on Monday that it is adding a new managed command line interface along with other features to its open source distributed SQL database, dubbed YugabyteDB Managed.
According to the company, the Managed Command Line Interface (CLI) allows developers to take advantage of the advantages of automation while writing code without having to acquire new skills.
As a result, developers at all levels can easily create and manage clusters from their terminals or integrated development environments (IDEs) and utilize the most advanced set of tools to optimize database performance and drive the business forward,” Karthik Ranganathan, Yugabyte’s co-founder and chief technical officer, stated.
As a result, developers can now create and manage clusters hosted in YugabyteDB Managed from their IDE or terminal without having to be familiar with REST APIs or Terraform, said Ranganathan.
Furthermore, the new Managed CLI can automate repetitive tasks and has auto-completion features that make discovering new features easy for developers, database administrators, and DevOps engineers.
The new CLI is also compatible with multiple platforms, including Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. You can download the Windows version from GitHub.
YugabyteDB Managed has also been updated with improved observability features, including over 125 new SQL and storage layer metrics.
“These new metrics will provide enterprises with even deeper insights into their database’s performance, making it easier to identify and resolve performance issues,” the company stated in its blog.
As part of its cloud-based user interface, YugabyteDB Managed offers new visualization options to reorder metrics for a custom dashboard, as well as new synchronized tooltips in charts for easier troubleshooting.
AWS PrivateLink, a service that provides private connectivity between virtual private clouds, supported AWS services, and on-premises networks, has also been added as part of the service.
In a private preview, this feature is now available for dedicated clusters created in YugabyteDB Managed on AWS, as an alternative to VPC peering, for secure access to your databases.
AWS PrivateLink also provides more secure access to an enterprise’s databases, the company explained.
Enterprises that currently use YugabyteDB can request a free trial of YugbyteDB Managed with all features.
