This page provides an overview of FeatureBase databases and links to guide you through the process of creating databases.
FeatureBase databases are clusters of FeatureBase nodes which act as dedicated resources to load and query data from an external data source.

A database version represents the FeatureBase version the database runs on. It is denoted as a “release number”-“commit hash” that corresponds to a commit to the open source repository. When you create a new database in FeatureBase Cloud, it will use the latest version.
FeatureBase identifiers (including object names such as databases, tables and columns) start with a lower-case alphabetic character and can include:
- lower-case alphabetic characters
- numbers 0-9
- database names can be up to 300 characters in length
Database states are represented by
status in the FeatureBase application and API.
FeatureBase automatically backs-up your databases every 24 hours.

- Queries per second
- Ingested records per second
