Today we released our latest version, CockroachDB 21.2. Our customers turn to CockroachDB for a highly scalable and resilient relational database — but they also value a familiar and comfortable developer experience, simple integrations with their preferred stack, and easy operations. In CockroachDB 21.2, we’ve extended our capabilities with these core principles in mind:
Our goal with CockroachDB has always been to make it easier for any developer to build data-intensive applications, and this release is another forward step in that journey. Many of these updates were in direct response to customer and community feedback, so we want to give a huge thanks to everyone who contributed their thoughts on using CockroachDB!
Read on to learn more, or head over to the Release Notes for a full list of what’s new. Meanwhile, are some highlights from CockroachDB 21.2.
Relational databases are often a key input to event-driven systems and feed data to data warehouses; however, they often require complex or costly mechanisms to integrate. We built CockroachDB’s distributed and native change data capture (CDC) to be different.
CDC in CockroachDB takes very few steps to set up and simplifies the number of components and amount of code needed to implement these workflows. CockroachDB’s CDC already integrates with Kafka and cloud storage—and in this release, we’ve added more integrations and have made it more scalable and easier to monitor:
This release puts more power into the hands of developers by making it simpler to build against CockroachDB and achieve optimal performance.
Customize CockroachDB to your application’s needs with new SQL syntax that gives you more schema design tools and lets you optimize for different workloads:
Optimize SQL performance with more real-time and historical workload data in CockroachDB’s end-to-end monitoring experience:
CockroachDB was architected to easily support massive scale. In this release, we focused on improving CockroachDB’s monitoring and visibility, disaster preparedness, and recovery operations for large scale users.
These are just a sampling of the updates in CockroachDB 21.2. For a full list, head over to the Release Notes in docs. To try out these features yourself, you can get started for free on CockroachDB Dedicated, our cloud service. You can also try out many of these features on our newest offering, CockroachDB Serverless, now available in beta.
