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.

  • 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.

Unplanned downtime is one of the most significant pain points for industrial manufacturers today, costing them an estimated $50 billion each year. The risk is even greater for process manufacturing, where a critical equipment failure could result in the loss of an entire batch, environmental hazards, or safety risks. The adoption of digital technologies, such as the industrial internet of things (IIoT), promises to mitigate these threats by forecasting equipment failures and catching faults before they lead to unscheduled shutdowns. However, in practice, several challenges arise when maintenance personnel and operations leaders work to implement an IIoT solution aimed at eliminating unplanned downtime.

Gigasheet Launches New API To Power Collaboration Between Business and Data Teams

Prnewswire | April 21, 2023

Gigasheet, the big data analytics startup, has announced the launch of its new enterprise API, enabling programmatic access to the platform's big data spreadsheets. Gigasheet's spreadsheet-like interface is second nature to most business users, and the web-based application offers many 'one click' solutions to common data problems. These capabilities can now be extended, integrated, and automated via the new enterprise API. Data Teams are using the new API to automate repetitive tasks, schedule imports and exports, and deliver large volumes of data to non-technical users for exploration in an intuitive interface. Data can be pushed into Gigasheet from databases, data warehouses, or enterprise applications. The API also enables business users to help with data preparation before running data pipelines or to inspect data quality throughout its lifecycle. "From day one we have focused on helping empower people to answer questions about big data. The existing tools used to work with enterprise data are increasingly sophisticated, but these tools require users to know SQL or Python," says Gigasheet CEO and Co-founder Jason Hines. "Data engineers know about data availability and quality, while the business users have the context. This causes a lot of back and forth, and too often it's inefficient for both teams." With more than 30,000 users on the company's platform, it's clear users love Gigasheet's data transformations and operations. The user interface is highly performant on large data sets, and the speed of complex operations far exceeds that of other tools. The usual complexity of dealing with big data is hidden from the user, allowing them to focus on analysis. Gigasheet's API helps data teams by enabling business users to contribute to the company's data preparation and analysis efforts. Their requirements can be directly embedded into data pipelines, without burdening internal IT or data teams for training and support. "Gigasheet makes it so easy to work with huge sales and marketing data sets. We're excited to see they have added an API for more seamless integration into workflows," said Mark Feldman, CEO of RevenueBase, a B2B customer intelligence company. Feldman says the company has been using the product for about a year. The company's API is also playing a role in data preparation through their partnership with Tamr. Led by seasoned data veteran Andy Palmer, Tamr's Data Mastering technology helps enterprises transform their data into an asset and a competitive advantage. Palmer says that "The Gigasheet API is a gamechanger. Gigasheet's spreadsheet interface makes it easy for any data citizen to profile and clean up raw files. With the API, we can now embed Gigasheet into pipelines to help our customers get to insights faster."
