Datomic Cloud 884-9095: New tiers and internet access

13 July 2021

Datomic Cloud 884-9095 is a major new release offering more instance options, lower pricing, API Gateway automation for ions and clients, and more.

More instance options

Datomic now provides a wider variety of compute, memory, and monitoring choices. Basic compute instances start from t3.small and step up to t3.2xlarge, letting you ramp up on capability and cost linearly.

Lower pricing at all scales

All instances sizes now cost less to run. If you were running Solo before, you can now run the smallest production tier, including a load balancer, for what solo cost before. If you are running production, your cost will be lower at your current instance size, and you may be able to select a smaller instance size as well.

New automation ion web applications

Datomic’s CloudFormation templates can automatically setup both the VPC link and API Gateway needed to expose your web application (ion).

New client access from outside the VPC

Building on the new API Gateway automation, you can now elect to access your Datomic cloud system via an automatically-configured API Gateway, obviating the need for an access gateway and SOCKS proxy.

Run and scale analytics anywhere

Datomic analytics support is now available via a Datomic connector for Trino. With this connector, you can run analytics anywhere that you would like, e.g. a dev laptop or a cluster in EC2. You can also access Trino features including clustering and federation.

Security first

All of the new access points described above (web ions, client access, and analytics) are secured via TLS, and Datomic compute nodes continue to run in a private VPC.

Metrics choices

Datomic metrics are now available in two tiers: basic or detailed. (You can also turn off metrics entirely.) These choices let you minimize cost or maximize observability, independently for each compute group.

Try it

If you are an existing Datomic Cloud user, this release significantly simplifies operations. Before you upgrade, please read the changelog carefully, so that you understand all the things you will no longer need to do.

If you are new to Datomic Cloud, getting started has never been easier.
