PingCAP will publish a research paper "TiDB: A Raft-based HTAP Database" in the August issue of the Proceedings of the VLDB Endowment.
A new infrastructure pattern is emerging called the KOST stack (Kubernetes, Operator, Spark, TiDB). This blog post introduces each component of the KOST stack and cloud-native HTAP in the wild.
This post introduces some simple use cases of analytics queries where a MySQL DBA can expand their repertoire and answer some basic business questions by writing SQL queries with window functions.
The motivation behind building TiSpark was to enable real-time analytics on TiDB without the delay and challenges of ETL. Extract, transform, and load (ETL)--a process to extract data from operational databases, transform that data, then load it into a database designed to supporting analytics--has been one of the most complex, tedious, error-prone, and therefore disliked tasks for many data engineers. However, it was a necessary evil to make data useful, because there hasn't been good solutions on the market to render ETL obsolete--until now.
In this 5-minute tutorial for beginners, we will show you how to spin up a standard TiDB cluster using Docker Compose on your local computer, so you can get a taste of its hybrid power, before using it for work or your own project in production.
