RavenDB Cloud API and other updates
The RavenDB Cloud team has been silently working on a whole bunch of features. Many of them are backend features that as a user, you don’t really care about. But we finally got around to unveiling a lot of the stuff that is customer facing.
RavenDB Cloud now has a public API so you can automate your cluster and deployments. You can go into your cloud account, create an API key and you are done. We provide APIs for .NET and Node.js out of the box, or you can use Swagger to generate a client for your own platform.
Here is how you can use it to create a new cluster:
What might be of more interest to you is the ability to change the cluster type (which impact its capabilities and costs) on the fly. Here is how we can upgrade our previous cluster to a higher tier:
RavenDB Cloud is able to do such operation without taking anything down, and upgrading or downgrading the cluster is a live operation that takes up to 15 minutes.
In other news, as you might have noticed that I’m deploying this to Google Cloud. We are now fully live in GCP, not longer in beta.
On Amazon’s side, we have added support for the new Africa region. We are also planning on adding a whole bunch of regions on Azure side of the pond.
Please let us know what you are doing with the API, I’m sure your ingenuity is going to exceed our expectations.
