General Availability

With this release, CockroachDB graduates from beta to a production-ready database built for the cloud and designed to power business at any scale from startup to enterprise. Years of development have gone into the capabilities included, from distributed SQL workloads with guaranteed ACID semantics, to multi-active availability with consistent consensus-based replication, to simple and flexible deployment and operations, to enterprise-scale distributed, incremental backup and restore.
