Everything is data

CockroachDB has always intrigued me, and not just because of the name. When I first heard about it, it was still early days in the cloud database space and Cockroach was claiming full ACID compliance on a globally distributed scale with a SQL interface. And for free. At least the core was free for self-hosting. If you wanted enterprise features you paid for those. A familiar model in the open source database world. Now however they have a Cloud hosted service that has a forever-free tier. You get 5GiB on a shared server, but that is pretty good for a hobby application or a test server.
