CockroachCloud Enters Beta

Cockroach Labs has announced the beta of CockroachCloud, a self-service, fully managed version of CockroachDB. 

CockroachDB is a distributed SQL database that is cloud native and offers horizontal scalability with no single points of failure. A year ago the company announced a limited availability of Managed CockroachDB, and the developers say they've learned a lot from the early adopters. CockroachCloud has been developed based on the feedback from those users and is now being offered to a broader audience.

The CockroachCloud service is currently being offered on Amazon's AWS and Google's GCP, though the developers say support for more public cloud providers will be added soon.

The developers say you can create a CockroachCloud cluster just by picking your cloud provider and region, and the number and size of nodes. Cockroach Labs takes care of all the day-to-day operations of running a distributed SQL database such as provisioning servers, setting up monitoring and alerting, upgrading to major and minor versions, and daily full and hourly incremental backups. All the enterprise CockroachDB features are available on CockroachCloud, such as change data capture (CDC), role based access control (RBAC) and geo-partitioning.

Security.is managed by having CockroachCloud clusters deployed in separate dedicated VPCs with firewalls, and access to the cluster must be granted via IP whitelists. All network traffic is encrypted using Transport Layer Security (TLS), and encryption at rest is on by default for all data, including backups.

The service can be set up with a single node for testing, though the developers recommend three nodes as the preferred minimum production deployment. In a three-node deployment, you get automatically provisioned nodes across three availability zones to make your cluster resilient to datacenter outages. There's also the option of having a globally available cluster with nodes spread across multiple regions (and across availability zones within regions).

The beta program is open now for testing on Google Cloud and AWS.
