CockroachDB overview

This section provides an overview of the hosted CockroachDB offering from ObjectRocket.

What is CockroachDB?

The developers described CockroachDB as a “cloud-native SQL database for building global, scalable cloud services that survive disasters.”

It is an Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, and Durability (ACID)-compliant, relational datastore with a comfortable SQL interface and PostgreSQL wire compatibility, but with automatic high-availability (HA), easy scalability, and geographic scaling.

What’s included in an ObjectRocket for CockroachDB instance?

Each CockroachDB instance includes the following:

  • A 3-node cluster with HA, automatic failover, and balancing

  • Access to the CockroachDB admin UI

  • ACLs/IP whitelisting, password or certificate authentication, and Transport Layer Security (TLS) to secure the cluster

  • Daily backups with 2-week retention

  • An enterprise license for CockroachDB
