Kuzzle Release 2.13.0: What’s New?

Kuzzle is constantly evolving and it’s been a long time since we didn’t upgrade our services. So it’s now time to evolve them too.

Version française


Elasticsearch 7.13.1 Support

Kuzzle now supports the latest version of Elasticsearch 7.13.1.

Since Elasticsearch 7.4.2 a lot has changed, this upgrade to 7.13.1 comes with many optimizations to reduce  space usage and increase speed. 


  • Indexing is now up to 20% faster than before.
  • Increased space efficiency due to higher compression.
  • Faster term aggregation under some circumstances.
  • And many more new features.

Node.js 14 Support

Kuzzle now supports the latest version of Node 14.17.0.


Node.js 14 comes with a new version of the V8 Engine featuring:

  • Null Coalescing operator

  • Some speed improvements.

Along as a new class AsyncLocalStorage used to share data between asynchronous calls. And many more new features and enhancements.

Redis 6 Support

   Kuzzle now supports the latest version of Redis 6.2.4.

Redis 6 comes with a performance boost acquired by multithreading the socket I/O and devoting a single core to manipulating, storing and retrieving the data.
