Re: Relational?

Hi Robert

I know a bit about Yugabyte - the base design is inspired by Google Spanner, but with the added advantage of a PostgreSQL compatible interface - specifically, because it uses the PostgreSQL v11.2 query layer.

There is a great article about how an Atomic Clock can be replaced by a Hybrid Logical Clock https://www.yugabyte.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/Distributed-Transactions-Without-Atomic-Clocks.pdf

The added advantage of this approach is that it can be used cross-cloud and hybrid on-prem/cloud as it doesn't rely on a specific atomic clock configuration but has the same minimum transaction time guarantees.

Best

David
