ArangoDB Sharding Release 2.0.0 RC1

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
