ArangoDB 3.1 – A Solid Ground to Scale part II

00General, ReleasesTags:

It’s not that long ago since we released ArangoDB 3.0 in which we introduced our binary storage format VelocyPack, the ArangoDB Agency for a self-managing cluster and the first persistent index by implementing Facebooks RocksDB. With all that we laid the foundation for a solid ground to scale with all three data-models.

With today’s ArangoDB 3.1 release we take things a few steps further and make cluster usage of ArangoDB more performant and convenient. Get ArangoDB 3.1.

General upgrades in 3.1

  • Performance boost with our new boost-ASIO server infrastructure
  • Performance boost by overhauling the ArangoDB query optimizer
  • Improved internal abstraction for storage-engines as a preparation for MVCC and pluggable storage-engines
  • VelocyPack over HTTP: Use our binary storage format VelocyPack over HTTP
  • VelocyStream: for high performance needs you can now directly stream VelocyPack. This is already implemented in our Java driver (all other drivers maintained by ArangoDB will follow soon).

ArangoDB 3.0 new Cluster features

02cluster, ReleasesTags: ,

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.

Synchronous replication

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

Getting closer: ArangoDB 3.0 alpha release

00ReleasesTags: ,

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
