The first question many developers ask us is what our experience has been writing a distributed database in Go, a garbage-collected language.
For CockroachDB, the aim is to be highly scalable and transactional. We asked them to share technical details of their open source, distributed SQL database
SQL? I thought CockroachDB was a key-value store?!? In the past we described CockroachDB as a distributed, transactionally consistent, key-value store.
One of the headline features of CockroachDB is its full support for ACID transactions across a distributed database. In this post, we’ll explain...
In CockroachDB, we use the Raft consensus algorithm to ensure that your data remains consistent even when machines fail.
Today, we’re launching CockroachDB for everyone. Use it. Build on it. Contribute to it!
