CockroachDB 1.0 is now available! Get more details in this blog post.

CockroachDB Enterprise

A SQL database built for global businesses.

Distributed SQL

Develop efficiently with distributed SQL that grows with your business

  • Reason with a single logical database that can scale horizontally across multiple data centers transparently to applications.
  • Use existing PostgreSQL client drivers or supported ORMs.
  • Interface with a robust SQL API that supports distributed ACID transactions, foreign keys, secondary indexes, JOINs, aggregations, and zero-downtime schema changes.

Improved uptime

Maintain data integrity at scale

  • Provide always-on services with multi-active availability, a new standard of availability that uses groups of symmetric nodes to intelligently agree on write success. Once consensus is reached, writes are instantly readable from any node in the cluster.
  • Send R/W traffic to any CockroachDB node - all nodes are symmetric and serve as client gateways.
  • Dynamically load balance to healthy nodes instead of using complex and error-prone failover setups.
  • Achieve greater data redundancy and availability with consistent replication across nodes.

Always-on service

Go cloud-native with a database that supports flexible deployment

  • Take full advantage of the horizontal scalability and flexibility of the cloud with symmetric nodes that run on commodity hardware.
  • Control data placement with zone configurations for faster client response times, better performance, and stronger availability.

Flexible Operations

Simplify operations with built-in scaling and replication

  • Reduce operational overhead with self-organizing nodes that support built-in scaling, failover, replication, and repair.
  • Maintain enterprise-grade infrastructure with zero downtime rolling upgrades.
  • Monitor cluster health and performance through the admin UI.

Fast recovery

Distributed Backup and Restore for faster recovery

  • Protect and version data with strongly consistent, distributed backups.
  • Run periodic jobs more efficiently with incremental backups.
  • Recover quickly with distributed restore that takes advantage of the full cluster for better performance.
