Upcoming ArangoDB 3.7 and Storage Engines

00GeneralTags: ,

TL;DR

ArangoDB has supported two storage engines for a while: RocksDB and MMFiles. While ArangoDB started out with just the MMFiles storage engine in its early days, RocksDB became the default storage engine in the 3.4 release. Due to its drawbacks ArangoDB 3.6 deprecated the old MMFiles storage engine and with the upcoming 3.7 release we plan to fully remove support. This blog post will provide the background of why storage engines matter, why we chose to deprecate the MMFiles storage engine, and what you should be aware of when migrating from MMFiles to the RocksDB storage engine.

Alpha 1 of the upcoming ArangoDB 3.7

00GeneralTags: , ,

We released ArangoDB version 3.6 in January this year, and now we are already 6 weeks into the development of its follow-up version, ArangoDB 3.7. We feel that this is a good point in time to share some of the new features of that upcoming release with you!

We try not to develop new features in a vacuum, but want to solve real-world problems for our end users. To get an idea of how useful the new features are, we would like to make alpha releases available to everyone as soon as possible. Our goal is get early user feedback during the development of ArangoDB, so we can validate our designs and implementations against the reality, and adjust them if it turns out to be necessary.

If you want to give some of the new features a test drive, you can download the 3.7 Alpha 1 from here – Community and Enterprise – for all supported platforms. Read more
