TiDB Weekly

News & blog post

In TiDB 3.1 Beta released on Dec 20, 2019, TiDB introduced Follower Read, a highlight open-source feature that lets any follower replica in a Region serve a read request under the premise of strongly consistent reads. This feature improves the throughput of the TiDB cluster and reduces the load on the Raft leader.

Last week, we published a post that guides you through why we introduced Follower Read, how we implement it, and our future plans for it.
