Eh? What's cockroachDB, can it survive a nuclear blast? 😆
Thanks for the recomendations, we'll consider them 🙂
I think that that's the reference, yes. It's a NoSQL database that is PostgreSQL API compatible. It's open source and free. It's definitely not as fast as PostgreSQL, but it has a great web GUI and is a "drop in" for PostgreSQL but with different behaviour characteristics. So PostgreSQL will be way better for normal NodeBB deployments, but if someone wants a geographically diversified server farm, CockroachDB will do that using NoSQL mechanisms behind the scenes. it's pretty cool.
