Developers may need to adopt distributed relational databases as their applications and user bases scale. However, managing distributed systems often require extensive configuration and tuning. To make it far easier to implement and maintain a horizontally scalable relational database, Cockroach Labs has released Cockroach Serverless. Cockroach Serverless is a distributed, multi-tenant system; but it obviates the need for hardware and capacity planning. Cockroach Serverless also automatically scales based on user demand and offers usage-based pricing.
