Detailing the challenges of implementing Unicode collation in CockroachDB, a standard for ordering strings in ways our users around the world expect.
As we prepare for CockroachDB 1.0, we hired Jepsen author Kyle Kingsbury to run CockroachDB through the Jepsen gauntlet.
In this post we share performance and functionality progress that has been made on SQL joins in CockroachDB and what to expect in CockroachDB 1.0.
Some months ago I started work on a way to test random, valid SQL in CockroachDB. This is important to expose unintended behavior in our server.
We recently improved our distributed SQL performance by implementing column families in CockroachDB. Column families are commonly found in NoSQL databases.
This blog post outlines how fuzz testing uncovered a Schrodinbug in CockroachDB, how Go was partly to blame, and how we addressed it using strong typing.
The good news is that CockroachDB’s JOIN seems to work, as in, “it returns correct results.” However, this is just our first, unoptimimized implementation.
We have added a new feature: time-travel queries. To our knowledge, we are the first database to have implemented the them.
Adopting SQL had an unexpected consequence; it forced us to dabble in language design. In this post, we detail our approach to SQL typing in CockroachDB.
CockroachDB's support for SQL means access to a variety of data frameworks and tools. Today, we'll build a simple application in Python using SQLAlchemy...
