ArangoDB Sharding Release 2.0.0-rc1: Enhanced Scalability

This version is deprecated. Download the new version of ArangoDB

Sharding has come to ArangoDB. We are proud to announce the release candidate of ArangoDB 2.0.0. The ArangoDB 2 is API downward compatible to ArangoDB 1.4. ArangoDB 2 can be used as standalone or distributed system. You can use the same packages / binaries for a stadalone and a sharding setup. See “setup cluster” for how to enable the cluster features of ArangoDB 2 and how to distribute your data to many servers. Please note that the datafiles are not compatible. ArangoDB 2 will convert these files to a newer format. If you only want to play with the new sharding features, make sure that you use a separate database directory. Where to go next? – a general introduction – how set up a distributed cluster. coming soon: guidelines for API implementors
