immudb 1.4 Comes With FIPS-Compliant Builds, Synchronous Replication


immudb, the only immutable enterprise-scale database with cryptographic verification, adds FIPS 140-2 compliant cryptography support, meeting Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) requirements, as well as a huge performance boost and synchronous replication – providing high availability.

FedRAMP is a government-wide program that promotes the adoption of secure cloud services across the federal government by providing a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.

“We’ve achieved a 1080% performance increase with this latest release of immudb (version 1.4) which can handle millions of transactions per second and serve as a high performance alternative to blockchains and other ledger technologies,” said Dennis Zimmer, co-founder and chief technology officer at Codenotary, the primary contributor to the immudb open source project. “We are seeing rapid adoption with 15 million downloads and have more than doubled the number of GitHub stars over the past year to nearly 8,000.”

By attaining the FIPS 140-2 compliance for immudb, Codenotary ensures this immutable database is eligible for use by U.S. federal agencies, including the Department of Defense, as well as for use in regulated industries such finance and healthcare. Equally important, immudb now adds synchronous real-time replication that provides high availability, along with new software development kits (SDK) for languages such as Java, node.js, Python, Go and .NET.
