Oracle NoSQL Database Version 20.1 is now available

Principal Product Manager

We are pleased to announce the release of Oracle  NoSQL Database Version 20.1. This release contains the following new features: 

  • Multi-Region Table – Oracle NoSQL Database 20.1 introduces tables that can span multiple geographic regions. This feature bi-directionally replicates a table's data and keeps it in sync across all regions. Multi-Region tables have an active-active architecture that can service users in their local regions, enable predictable low latency access, and provide disaster recovery in the face of full-region failures. Oracle NoSQL Database can automatically resolve write conflicts, which allows the application developer to focus on the application's business logic. Key benefits to the customer include read/write anywhere, disaster recovery, and always-on availability.  Read more about this feature in our docs here
  • Untyped JSON Index - JSON Indexing capabilities have been enhanced in Oracle NoSQL 20.1, providing more flexibility in the usage of schema-less JSON. Developers can create an index on one or more JSON fields without specifying the data type of the index fields.  Un-typed JSON indexes enable schema-less documents whose indexed values can contain any valid JSON atomic types (e.g., number, string, boolean).  This is extremely powerful when indexing values in your documents of different types.
  • SQL IN Operator - The IN operator is a logical operator that allows developers to test whether a specified value matches any value in a list. With this feature, SQL queries become more compact and are executed more efficiently.  E.g you can now write the following query : 

SELECT * FROM Foo WHERE a IN (1,5,4)

Instead of:

SELECT * FROM Foo WHERE a=1 or a=5 or a=4

Refer to our doc for more details to learn about the IN Operator.
