Happy new year

Happy new year!

Before we kick into the first changelog of 2024, let us wish you a Happy New Year!

Looking back, 2023 has been an explosive year for Tinybird and our users. Together, we served over 45 billion API requests to power some amazing applications. In our creator community, our friends at Dub.co tracked over 18 million link clicks, while OpenStatus hit 1 million requests per day!

We can’t wait to see what people will build with Tinybird in 2024 ❤️

Compression details

You can now view the detailed breakdown of compression statistics per-column for every Data Source.

Tinybird automatically compresses ingested data, achieving significant reductions in data storage. The exact compression ratio depends on the data and column type, but until now, it hasn’t been as easy as it should be to identify opportunities to optimize storage. With this new feature, you can now see the compression ratio for each column, and exactly how much storage the column consumes, for every Data Source. You can access this in the UI on the Schema tab of the Data Source details page.

Viewer role for read-only access

A new ‘Viewer’ role has been added for read-only permissions on a Workspace.

The new ‘Viewer’ role allows for users to join a Workspace in a read-only capacity, being able to view queries and their results, but unable to edit resources. We had several requests from teams that wanted to give users access to Tinybird for visibility, but without a need for them to make any changes.

AWS EU Central is now public!

Tinybird is now available in the AWS eu-central-1 (Frankfurt, Germany) region for all Free and Pro users!

In December last year, we launched our first public AWS region in the US East, and promised that we’d follow up with an EU region shortly. Well, here it is! This complements our availability in GCP, giving Tinybird an EU and US region in both AWS and GCP.
