rqlite v3.12.1 now with Discovery Service for easier clustering

rqlite is a lightweight, open-source distributed relational database, with SQLite as its storage engine. v3.12.1 has been released. This release includes integration with a new Discovery Service, allowing nodes to automatically connect and form a cluster. This can be very convenient, allowing clusters to be dynamically created.

You can download the release from GitHub.

rqlite now supported on Microsoft Windows

Microsoft Windowsrqlite is a lightweight, open-source distributed relational database, with SQLite as its storage engine. Thanks to the power of the Go tool chain, it is compatible with Microsoft Windows without any extra effort.

To ensure that it remains compatible with Windows, I have enabled CI for Windows using AppVeyor. After some help from the open-source community, it’s up and running now.

rqlite v3: Globally replicating SQLite

rqlite on GitHubrqlite is an open-source distributed relational database, which uses SQLite as its storage engine. rqlite is written in Go and uses Raft to achieve consensus across a set of SQLite databases. It gracefully handles leader election, and can tolerate machine failure.

With the v3 release series, rqlite can now replicate SQLite databases on a global scale, with very little effort. Let’s see it in action using the AWS EC2 cloud.

rqlite – replicated SQLite with new Raft consensus and API

Raft consensus protocolrqlite provides robust replication for SQLite databases using the Raft consensus protocol. Coded in Go it ensures that all changes made to the leader SQLite database are replicated to all other nodes in the cluster, providing fault-tolerance and reliability.

It’s been 18 months since development of rqlite first started and it’s time for version 2.

rqlite and Hashicorp Raft Consensus

Hashicorp RaftI’ve started replacing go-raft within rqlite with the implementation from Hashicorp. go-raft is no longer maintained, and I’ve good experience with the Hashicorp code, due to my work with InfluxDB and hraftd. I’m also going to change the API, so it’s more useful. The existing implementation and API has been tagged as v1.0, so it’s still available.

You can follow the work on this branch, and I hope to merge it to master in the near future.
