Each October, RoachFest gathers together application owners, architects, engineers, and operators running their data-intensive workloads on CockroachDB (along with other innovators who are exploring doing the same). This conference centers on our users: attendees share their work, meet their peers, and learn first-hand from the builders behind the database. They’re also the first to hear about our latest product and feature releases, and the new capabilities they unlock for users.
Product headlines at this year’s RoachFest focus on maturity and enterprise readiness. These include the news that our managed service CockroachDB dedicated is now generally available on Azure, and multi-region CockroachDB serverless is also now generally available for users to harness data distribution across cloud provider regions (while paying only for what they actually use). We are also introducing (in preview) our new MOLT Live Migration Service to give users the ability to live-migrate from a legacy database with zero-to-low downtime and no disruption of service.
Read on for more details, plus a few more new CockroachDB features and capabilities around observability, integrations with Datadog and Terraform, and support for Debezium and Oracle GoldenGate.
From the very beginning, CockroachDB was built to maximize flexibility and control. The production-ready availability of CockroachDB for Microsoft Azure means CockroachDB is one of a select few distributed SQL database services accessible to all three major cloud providers.
We heard from many of our customers running self-hosted on Azure that they wanted to take advantage of our managed service, and the operational efficiency that comes with it. With CockroachDB-as-a-service on Azure,

CockroachDB serverless — our on-demand, pay per use, autoscaling managed service — now has production-ready multi-region capabilities, letting users distribute data across a cloud provider’s regions and lock it to specific locations. We also added custom metrics capability to expand and enhance observability to make CockroachDB’s serverless observability truly enterprise-ready. Users can now:

Database migrations are notoriously difficult, but the right tools and strong compatibility between your source database and target database can ease the process. The CockroachDB MOLT (Migrating Off Legacy Technology) suite of migrations tools helps application teams make migrations less painful by reducing the changes that must be made to your application.
Launching in preview, our new MOLT Live Migration Service allows CockroachDB customers to:

Here are a few more new features to make your application (and maybe even your life) a little better:
This enhanced integration makes sure that essential CockroachDB metrics are available for alerting and detecting issues in Datadog. Teams can utilize granular SQL statistics to uplevel database observability into Datadog — providing greater database context and the ability to troubleshoot issues directly in Datadog.
New CockroachDB management capabilities for Terraform equal improved efficiency and performance during every phase of your data infrastructure lifecycle: provisioning, performance optimization, troubleshooting, and integrations.
CockroachDB now supports additional migration tools: Debezium and Oracle GoldenGate.
