CockroachDB uses RocksDB for its storage engine because of RocksDB's rich feature set, which is necessary for a complex product like a distributed SQL database.
CockroachDB achieves high OLTP performance of 128,000 tpmC on a 2 terabyte TPC-C dataset in size. This is 10x more TPC-C throughput than Aurora.
Cockroach Labs will be speaking at and sponsoring Postgres Conf in Jersey City, NJ. A half-day workshop “An introduction to CockroachDB” will be led by CockroachDB engineers Nikhil Benesch and Jordan Lewis, as well as a talk on performance benchmarking from Arjun Narayan.
Learn which performance metrics matter, why to demand benchmark TPC-C results under serializable isolation, and how CockroachDB 2.0’s performance compares to 1.1.
CockroachDB engineer Arjun Narayan will be presenting “CockroachDB: From OLTP to HTAP” at HPTS 2017.
