CockroachDB engineer Vivek Menezes will be presenting “CockroachDB: Inside a Distributed SQL Database”.
Does CockroachDB really survive? When data is written, will a failure really not end up in data loss? Let's explore how CockroachDB checks replication.
I periodically need to make changes to tables… mostly adding columns. Very simple with the alter table command… But my tables have up to 40 million rows now and they are growing fast… So those alter table commands take several hours… Since I’m using amazon RDS [sic], I can’t have slave servers to play with and then promote to master. So my question is if there’s a way to do this with minimal downtime?
