There's a new preview version of FaunaDB Developer Edition that provides a free to use, single-node, plug-and-play version of the database. FaunaDB has been available as a managed, serverless, cloud database since March this year.
The database system includes a transactional query language, ACID consistency, and multi-tenancy. It is strongly consistent and secure, implemented on the JVM for portability. It isn't SQL based, but is relational. You write queries using type-safe embedded domain specific languages (DSLs), like LINQ. The query language does support joins, foreign keys and indexes.
Alongside the support for relational data, FaunaDB has native support for distributed graphs and graph functions, as well as supporting document storage, with the ability for records in the same table to contain different fields, and for records in different tables to contain the same fields, and even be merged into the same index.
The developers have now announced two additions - the preview version of FaunaDB Developer Edition, and a preview version of FaunaDB Enterprise.
FaunaDB Developer Edition is a single-node, plug-and-play version of FaunaDB. It is packaged as a single Java JAR, it has no service or library dependencies aside from a recent JVM. It requires no installation or configuration, and is designed for local development and testing. FaunaDB Developer Edition is free but limited—you can’t set up a distributed cluster with it, and it’s not tuned for high performance.
FaunaDB Enterprise is designed to span any combination of public clouds, private clouds, or on-premises datacenters.
When it first appeared on the scene, Github was one of a kind and a true visionary amongst its rivals still using Subversion, Bazaar or Mercurial as their source control system.
After an outcry from its existing customers when it announced a new a subscription service for its range of desktop developer tools, JetBrains has now settled on a pricing model that includes a Perpetual Fallback Licence. Is this enough?
