Industries that Need a High Performing Low Latency Database


There are certain industries that greatly benefit from high-performing, low-latency, geo-distributed technologies, while other organizations might be more focused on vertically scaling architectures. This is dependent on numerous factors including the data pipeline, network, data structure, type of product or solution, short and long term goals, etc. While there are currently many databases and tools … Continued

Hybrid Cloud Explained (By a Non-Developer)


Hello again. It’s March, and while I missed February for putting out an “Explained” blog, I have a topic today that I think could use a non-developer breakdown. Let’s just get it out there, cloud computing is a term that has been so saturated and used in so many different, confusing, and sometimes incorrect contexts, … Continued

Why So Serverless?


Since we’re hosting a livestream next week on building a serverless Next.js app with HarperDB and Vercel, I thought it might make sense to do a debrief on “serverless.” We’re starting to see the word more and more, but do we really know what it means or why it’s growing in popularity? Let’s look into this. … Continued

Reduce Data Latency with Geo Distributed Databases


Do you ever have those moments where you know you’re thinking faster than the app you’re using? You click something and have time to think “what’s taking so long?” It’s frustrating to say the least, but it’s an all-too-common problem in modern applications. A driving factor of this delay is latency, caused by offloading processing … Continued

Enhance Your Hybrid Cloud Strategy with a New “Edge”


Large cloud providers are not highly distributed. In other words, they tend to have large data centers for specific regions. This may not sound like a big deal, but globally in areas with weaker Internet backbones or cases requiring minimal latency, this can come at a large cost. These centralized data centers may have been … Continued

That’s a Wrap – HarperDB 2020


Though this year has been quite different for everyone, the team at HarperDB has made great strides from both a product and organization standpoint. Before 2021 arrives, we wanted to take a moment to summarize what we’ve accomplished this year, how we overcame challenges, and what we look forward to next year. HarperDB has an … Continued

How We Use Infrastructure as Code in HDB Cloud


Why Infrastructure as Code? Earlier this year we launched HarperDB Cloud, a fully-managed, cloud-hosted version of HarperDB. We wanted HarperDB Cloud to be a fast and low-friction way to get HarperDB. Sign up, answer a couple of questions, and a few minutes later you have a working instance of HarperDB. To make this happen, we understood that … Continued
