The scalable, survivable, strongly consistent, SQL database.

CockroachDB enables developers to build scalable applications that can survive data center outages without breaking a sweat. With strong consistency, distributed SQL, and transactions, CockroachDB frees developers to focus on what matters – building great applications.


Open Source – Try it Now


From the garage to Fortune 500.

Exponential growth can take a promising technology from obscurity to global adoption in months. With distributed database technologies pioneered by Google and designed for web-scale applications, CockroachDB doesn’t require developers to make tradeoffs between time-to-market and scalable infrastructure.


Hardened resilience for every app, transparently.

CockroachDB provides the strongest disaster recovery story in the industry, so when your data center or cloud infrastructure suddenly goes offline, your application stays up.  CockroachDB bridges data centers to provide automated, transparently continuous service in the face of large scale outages; apps require no knowledge or special handling of failover conditions.

Strongly Consistent

One truth, everywhere.

Today’s successful businesses have increasingly global customer bases. Customers in Berlin are happier accessing their data from a data center in Geneva than Silicon Valley. CockroachDB is a geo-replicated database with flexible reconfiguration that allows for access from the lowest latency sources without sacrificing consistency. Say goodbye to eventually consistent solutions.



So you can build apps, not workarounds.

For the past decade, developers have had to choose between the guarantees of traditional relational databases and the horizontal scalability of NoSQL systems. CockroachDB is a scale-out, SQL RDBMS with support for ACID transactions. It saves companies from endlessly reimplementing inefficient and wasteful workarounds, allowing them to focus on what matters most: their business.
