Build on a familiar SQL foundation that minimizes the learning curve for your fellow developers and trust that it will scale with you as your business grows.
Whether you're building an AI app, blockchain platform, or generating large transactional workloads, never worry about read/write bottlenecks and ensure that your transactions are always consistent.
Collect metadata about your users and their interactions with your platform, and scale horizontally as your user base grows while maintaining consistency.
Check permissions in real time and receive accurate responses to queries while serving a globally distributed user base.
Choosing the right database for your future aspirations saves time, money, and headaches down the road. Start small and feel confident that your infrastructure will grow with you since CockroachDB delivers the resilience and scale required to build global applications.
Spin up a new cluster in minutes, leverage standard SQL, and connect to familiar Postgres extensions with ease. When you want to scale your project, simply add more nodes and CockroachDB will automatically rebalance the data.
Start local and grow to meet your users no matter where they are located with a single database implementation. CockroachDB can distribute data across multiple regions and pin data to a particular location for low-latency access and regulatory compliance.
Don’t waste time on manual sharding or worry about reaching your maximum server size. CockroachDB automatically scales both reads and writes that will allow you to grow from a single customer, to a massive success.
Never lose sleep over data loss again with CockroachDB’s self-healing infrastructure that can survive any type of failure. Serializable isolation prevents concurrency issues by default, helping you avoid transaction anomalies as workloads grow.
“Not only did we want a database that could work for us when we launched, but we needed a solution that could work for us in the future. We wanted a database that was resilient to failures. A modern cloud database that could scale.”
“We wanted to be able to tell a zero RTO/RPO story,” Caballero says. “When we evaluated Cockroach against other things we were looking at for multi-region like AWS Aurora or similar products, we just felt that this [CockroachDB] was the best.”
“We knew how complicated it would have been to stay with Postgres and set up sharding. There would have been a constant drag of managing multiple shards of data. No one on our team wanted to go through that manual labor. And even if we did set up sharding, we weren’t going to be able to grow our business 10x.”
Startup applications require an cloud-native, distributed database that can effortlessly scale up and down based on demand. CockroachDB has unique capabilities that set it apart from other database solutions.
