Geographically distributed databases like CockroachDB offer a number of benefits including reliability, cost-effective deployments, and more. Critics often counter that distributed databases increase latency. What if a database could offer all of the benefits of distribution, but also provide low-latency?…
This blog covers the practical experience of running a distributed system across multiple Kubernetes clusters including what makes it challenging and what solutions are available (some of which we run in production).
Scaling a database beyond one zone is a challenge. Here's some practical advice on how to approach it.
CockroachDB minimizes latency and provides exceptional reliability using “follow-the-workload” to improve performance and provide control for DBA’s.
CockroachDB makes it easier to manage and scale mission-critical data, and DC/OS provides elastic scale, zero downtime, and hassle-free operations.
Running CockroachDB on Kubernetes pairs its built-in replication and survivability with Kubernetes’ process management, creating a highly available system.
