HyperDex 1.3: Expanded API, General Improvements

HyperDex Logo

We are proud to announce HyperDex 1.3, the next generation NoSQL data store that provides ACID transactions, fault-tolerance, and high-performance. Some key features of HyperDex are:

  • High Performance: HyperDex is fast. It outperforms MongoDB and Cassandra on industry-standard benchmarks by a factor of 2X or more.
  • Advanced Functionality: With the Warp add-on, HyperDex offers multi-key transactions that span multiple objects with ACID guarantees.
  • Strong Consistency: HyperDex ensures that every GET returns the result of the latest PUT.
  • Fault Tolerance: HyperDex automatically replicates data to tolerate a configurable number of failures.
  • Scalable: HyperDex automatically redistributes data to make use of new resources as you add more nodes to your cluster.

This release brings the following changes and improvements:

  • Expanded API: This release introduces the get_partial API call, which can retrieve a subset of attributes, enabling efficient applications.
  • New Platform: This release is the first to be packaged on Ubuntu 14.04. Binary packages are available on the download page.
  • Bug Fixes: This release fixes several bugs, including poor performance on state transfer, periodic high CPU usage, unexpected server reconfiguration, and an assertion failure.

HyperDex runs on 64-bit Linux (Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, Centos) and OS X. Binary packages for Debian 7, Ubuntu 12.04-14.04, Fedora 18-20, and CentOS 6 are available, as well as source tarballs for other Linux platforms.

This release provides bindings for C, C++, Python, Node.js, Java, Ruby, and Go.
