A review of the year in articles...
We started 2015 with a bang – A PostgreSQL flavored bang as we rolled out our new auto-scaling PostgreSQL deployments. We built our own high availability solution and then open sourced it. We added PostGIS and PGPerl because you asked. And we set out to answer the question "Is PostgreSQL your Next JSON Database?". Here's the Q1 PostgreSQL articles:
- Now Available: Auto-scaling PostgreSQL Deployments
- Seven Things You Didn't Know About Compose's Auto-scaling PostgreSQL
- How PostgreSQL Fits Compose
- High Availability for PostgreSQL, Batteries Not Included
- PostGIS for All Compose PostgreSQL Deployments
- Compose PostgreSQL Gets PL/Perl
- Is PostgreSQL Your Next JSON Database?
- Using Bucardo 5.3 to Migrate a Live PostgreSQL Database
- Open Sourcing Compose Governor - a Toolkit for Running HA Postgres
Of course it wasn't all about PostgreSQL. MongoDB got attention with a new data browser, faster restores, new import options and we made MongoDB 3.0 available on Compose. We also had advice, information and some guest articles for MongoDB users:
- Analytics & Reporting on Compose: Use SQL to Understand Your MongoDB Data
- Support Desk: Keeping MongoDB Live
- Lock Your MongoDB: Don’t Be Too Open for Business
- MongoDB Data Discovery & Visualization with Cloud9 Charts & Compose.io
- Optimizing MongoDB Queries with Elasticsearch
- Meteor Now Works with Latest MongoDB
- Your Drivers Are Not Magic - Testing Your Application for High Availability
Redis and RethinkDB
But we were also expanding the Compose roster of production databases further. Redis had been in beta, but that changed in February as we added a data browser and declared it production ready. We also showed how to chat using Redis and Go.
RethinkDB was also coming along nicely. The arrival of changefeeds brought real-time updating to the excellent document database and we followed up in Compose Articles with a two part look at using them in Go, RethinkDB & Changefeeds - Part 1 and Part 2.
Onwards tomorrow into Compose's April to June!
