The following table describes ClouSE major milestones:
|Public Beta v1.0
|Release Candidate v1.0
|General Availability v1.0
In the future releases ClouSE is going to be focused around three major directions:
- Continue to take advantage of its cloud storage-based architecture: enable read-only access by multiple ClouSE engines to the same cloud storage location to allow elastic scale out of read-only workloads, implement instant low cost snapshot backups, enable highly available failover configuration at a low cost, etc. – with ClouSE, professional grade scalable, highly available data solutions will come standard.
- Invest into advanced features that some transactional storage engines support: full text search, distributed transactions, automatic indexing and partitioning, etc.
- Go beyond OLTP and SQL: expose non-SQL API to support other programming paradigms, etc.
The directions and priorities may shift as the new opportunities develop and demands change. The ClouSE development team is committed to keeping a close feedback loop with the community and industry trends and will amend the strategy as needed to provide maximum value to our customers and partners.
