Open Source


Run on your laptop, development cluster, and public or private cloud without complex licensing, mock implementations, or inscrutable closed-source error output. Be a part of our vibrant community of developers and users! And if you really love databases, you can contribute to the design and implementation as it evolves.

  • Keep your options open and avoid vendor lock-in
  • Easy experimentation and enhancement
  • Bigger and more active community for support and troubleshooting
  • Debug problems through your entire stack

CockroachDB is open source
