Today we released our latest version, CockroachDB 21.2. Our customers turn to CockroachDB for a highly scalable and resilient relational database — but they also value a familiar and comfortable developer experience, simple integrations with their preferred stack, and easy operations. In CockroachDB 21.2, we’ve extended our capabilities with these core principles in mind:
Integrate more seamlessly with event-driven data architectures using CockroachDB’s distributed Change Data Capture (CDC): Stream data updates to any https endpoint using a new webhook-style sink (in addition to the existing integrations with Kafka and cloud storage) Increase scale for your CDC capacity with higher throughput and improvements for large table sizes Get improved visibility and easier troubleshooting for CDC Build against CockroachDB with a better developer experience, including: New SQL syntax including ON UPDATE and expression indexes Additional query performance data in the monitoring UI and the CLI, including index usage statistics, and an update that lets SQL Transactions and Statements data persist for multiple days New integrations with popular tools like Alembic and Sequelize Operate more easily at massive scale with: Improvements to CockroachDB’s disaster preparedness and speed of recovery operations for large clusters Improvements to CockroachDB’s monitoring and visibility in the DB Console for large clusters Our goal with CockroachDB has always been to make it easier for any developer to build data-intensive applications, and this release is another forward step in that journey.
