The upcoming 3.1 release comes with a binary protocol – VelocyStream – to transport VelocyPack (internal storage format of ArangoDB introduced with the 3.0 release) data between ArangoDB and client applications. VelocyPack stores a superset of JSON, is more compact and has a fast attribute lookup. On the other hand, VelocyStream allows to send VelocyPack in an optimized form over the network. We think it would be the right time to update our official Java Driver to modernize it and to let it be the first to fully support VelocyStream. Read more
We are glad to announce that the second release candidate (RC2) of ArangoDB 3.1 is publicly available. What makes this release particularly special to us is that it also includes an official release candidate of our new Enterprise Edition with a few extra add-ons up its sleeve. The upcoming ArangoDB 3.1 will be a significant release taking effort from the solid base built with ArangoDB 3.0 which introduced our binary storage format VelocyPack, the ArangoDB Agency for a self-managing cluster architecture and the first persistent index based on Facebook’s RocksDB.
After giving the idea some thought we decided to launch a brand new ArangoDB service for startups. First, we need to explain how we decided to go for the new service. As fellow startupers we can only sympathize with ambitious and innovative new business founders and their teammates. Read more
Hurray! Last week finally saw the release of ArangoDB 3.0 with lots of new features and in particular various improvements for ArangoDB clusters. In this blog post, I want to talk about one aspect of this, which is deployment.
As of last Wednesday, deploying an ArangoDB 3.0 cluster on DC/OS has become even simpler, because the new version of our framework scheduler has been accepted to the DC/OS Universe. Therefore, deployment is literally only two clicks: Read more
As you surely recognized we´ve released ArangoDB 3.0 a few days ago. It comes with great cluster improvements like synchronous replication, automatic failover, easy up- and downscaling via the graphical user interface and with lots of other improvements. Furthermore, ArangoDB 3 is even better integrated with Apache Mesos and DC/OS. Read more
After 6 months of development we are happy and excited to announce the fully production ready ArangoDB 3.0 today! Get ArangoDB 3.0 now!
We designed ArangoDB as a native multi-model DB from the first line of code. By providing three major NoSQL data models in one technology the ArangoDB team wants to fulfill its mission to simplify data work. With ArangoDB 3 we believe that our users will come more than one step closer to a dramatically simpler way to create their applications. Read more
The 3.0 release of ArangoDB will introduce a completely overhauled cluster and marks a major milestone on its road to “zero-maintenance” where you can keep focus on your product instead of your datacenter.
Earlier releases of ArangoDB already featured asynchronous replication. This was already a great method to do backups and allowed for failover in case of a disaster. However that was mostly a manual job and furthermore – due to its asynchronous nature – data loss could happen. Read more
There is this German saying “If it takes long enough, it will be all right in the end.” However, since just “all right” isn’t our quality standard this first alpha of 3.0 took us a bit longer to finish up than planned. We´d like to invite you to give this fully tested alpha a serious spin, test the new functionalities and share your thoughts and feedback with us on Slack in our “feedback30” channel
Within this short release note you´ll find 1) a quick overview of the most important changes; 2) an instruction on how to get the new version and 3) how to get your (test) data from your 2.x version into the 3.0 alpha which has our new binary storage format VelocyPack implemented. Read more
