QuasarDB 3.10.0 Stable Released

2 years ago

We are very pleased to announce the immediate availability of QuasarDB 3.10.0. You can get it here.

The previous stable version, 3.8.0, was released on April 6th, 2020, almost 18 months ago!

3.10 has been battle-tested on multi-petabytes datasets with continuous data ingestions over several months.

3.10 is our most resilient, fastest, and most efficient release ever.

Compared to 3.8, some queries run several orders of magnitude faster, and memory usage is massively reduced. We also greatly increased the write resiliency, for example in the case of a brutal shutdown.

This release does not just improve performance. It also delivers on powerful new querying capabilities, enabling you to aggregate, pivot, and join data in the most flexible way possible using our tagging  logic.

3.10 is a direct branch of 3.9.9 with the improvements listed below. Switching to a stable release means we will now be much more conservative in the future 3.10.x releases, focusing on API stability and bug fixes.

If you want to have the new shiny and powerful features (such as continuous queries, symbol table, etc.), wait for the 3.13 release. We expect to release 3.13 later this month. 

Where is 3.11? Let’s just say it’s now in a better place.

Important: the default binaries are optimized for Haswell architectures. You will need to use the Core2 builds if your architecture is older than Haswell.
