Release 0.8.0 — Performance, gRPC interface, Prometheus monitoring...

We just released the 0.8 version of our storage platform! Included in this release (see full changelog):

  • A gRPC interface to the key-value store using the ‑‑grpc option
  • Prometheus-compatible metrics collection endpoint using the ‑‑prometheus option
  • CLI adjustements
  • Performances improvements

What's next?

As you can probably guess from our change log, we're actively working on the key-value layer of our storage platform right now.

We're especially focused on improving and stressing our in-house key-value store. At the same time we're cleaning a lot of code so it can be open sourced in the following weeks.

You may wonder: why another key-value store? What will make it different from the etcd, Consul, ZooKeeper and other key-value stores is the use of a decentralized model (i.e peer-to-peer) where every node is equipotent, making it easily scalable, built with resilience and security in mind.

If you want to know more about it, have a look at the video or the slides from our DockerCon presentation a few weeks ago.

As always, don't hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any feedback or would like to chat about our releases. We're on reddit, Twitter, Slack or IRC.
