TiDB v7.1 is the first LTS (Long Term Support) version released in 2023, incorporating functional enhancements from over 20 real-world scenarios, with a total of more than 140 optimizations and fixes. It aims to improve the stability and performance of critical business operations, helping developers and database administrators increase productivity and further reduce total cost of ownership (TCO). You can confidently use TiDB v7.1.0 in production environments.

The Resource Control feature in TiDB v7.1.0 has been optimized and officially GA, enabling TiDB to support multi-tenant isolation. This provides a database consolidation solution for cloud and OP environments, helping enterprises improve resource utilization efficiency, reduce operational costs, and ensure system stability and security. Early adopter scenarios include:

  • Consolidating multiple MySQL business applications into a single TiDB cluster, ensuring critical business loads and reducing TCO;
  • Safely running batch processing tasks during business operation hours without affecting other businesses;
  • Multiple business systems sharing a single TiDB cluster, allowing a single business system to borrow resources during off-peak times when overall resources are idle;
  • Configuring different resources and priorities for production and R&D test environments on a single TiDB cluster;
  • Building a unified view with HTAP capabilities for real-time data analysis across business systems.

  • Comprehensive feature and solution training to help users get started quickly;
  • Solution consultation and technical support, with an expert team providing full support;
  • Participate in essay contests for a chance to become a TiDB Honorary Experience Officer;
