HyperDex Logo

We are proud to announce HyperDex 1.5.0 This release brings the following changes and improvements:

  • Per object authorization: HyperDex uses macaroons for authorization. Macaroons are a new authorization framework from Google that enables per-object authorization, and enables decentralized authorization across an entire cluster.
