The most important new features in CockroachDB

CockroachDB was architected from the ground up to be cloud-native, so that it can scale elastically and survive any failure, natively, without any additional setup or configuration. Since its inception, the Cockroach Labs team has made regular updates and improvements to the distributed database. Today, this database helps thousands of developers more efficiently build data driven applications in the cloud and is the foundation of many of the game-changing applications that are driving the modern, digital economy.
