The decision to make CockroachDB and PostgreSQL compatible was driven by a desire to be accessible to an ecosystem of drivers, existing code, and developer knowledge.
We ran the TPC-C benchmark against CockroachDB and Amazon Aurora to compare price per transaction and discovered Aurora costs 10x more than CockroachDB.
CockroachDB achieves high OLTP performance of 128,000 tpmC on a 2 terabyte TPC-C dataset in size. This is 10x more TPC-C throughput than Aurora.
Learn which performance metrics matter, why to demand benchmark TPC-C results under serializable isolation, and how CockroachDB 2.0’s performance compares to 1.1.
In this post, we provide details on how CockroachDB uses system memory on each node, and what you can do to keep memory usage in CockroachDB under control.
This is the story of the detection, investigation, and fix of just one performance bug.
In this post, we’ll share a few powerful optimizations that mitigate many of the performance problems common to Go garbage collection.
