What is most valuable?

The initial setup and deployment are simple.

What needs improvement?

We are looking for more features to support distributed high availability and geo-partitioning.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We use a combination of cloud-based and on-premises databases. On-premises we have Oracle and SQL Server. Our cloud-native databases are PostgreSQL and MySQL. PostgreSQL is quite similar to Oracle but CockroachDB is still evolving.

What other advice do I have?

At this point, I have not used this product enough to fully rate it on all of the features. In three or four months' time, I will have a better idea and understanding of it. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

What is most valuable?

How has it helped my organization?

CockroachDB is a best practice for my organization. High management of the CockroachDB (like creating or managing a data center across regions) seems so simple, and users can focus on developing the app. CockroachDB is very handy.

What needs improvement?

As additional features, I wish there was Japanese documentation, instead of just English. I know how powerful and simple CockroachDB can be for many Japanese people with the correct documentation.

What is CockroachDB?

CockroachDB is a distributed SQL database built on a transactional and strongly-consistent key-value store. It scales horizontally; survives disk, machine, rack, and even datacenter failures with minimal latency disruption and no manual intervention; supports strongly-consistent ACID transactions; and provides a familiar SQL API for structuring, manipulating, and querying data.

CockroachDB is inspired by Google’s Spanner and F1 technologies, and it’s completely open source.
