ActorDB vs RethinkDB: What are the differences?

Developers describe ActorDB as "Distributed SQL database with linear scalability". ActorDB is a distributed SQL database.. with the scalability of a KV store, while keeping the query capabilities of a relational database. ActorDB is ideal as a server side database for apps.. On the other hand, RethinkDB is detailed as "JSON. Scales to multiple machines with very little effort. Open source". RethinkDB is built to store JSON documents, and scale to multiple machines with very little effort. It has a pleasant query language that supports really useful queries like table joins and group by, and is easy to setup and learn.

ActorDB and RethinkDB can be primarily classified as "Databases" tools.

Some of the features offered by ActorDB are:

  • Complete horizontal scalability. All nodes are equivalent and you can have as many nodes as you need.
  • Full featured ACID database.
  • Suitable for very large datasets over many actors and servers.

On the other hand, RethinkDB provides the following key features:

  • JSON data model and immediate consistency.
  • Distributed joins, subqueries, aggregation, atomic updates.
  • Secondary, compound, and arbitrarily computed indexes.

ActorDB and RethinkDB are both open source tools. RethinkDB with 22.4K GitHub stars and 1.74K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than ActorDB with 1.76K GitHub stars and 67 GitHub forks.

            What are some alternatives to ActorDB and RethinkDB?
            MySQL
            The MySQL software delivers a very fast, multi-threaded, multi-user, and robust SQL (Structured Query Language) database server. MySQL Server is intended for mission-critical, heavy-load production systems as well as for embedding into mass-deployed software.
            PostgreSQL
            PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system that supports an extended subset of the SQL standard, including transactions, foreign keys, subqueries, triggers, user-defined types and functions.
            MongoDB
            MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
            Microsoft SQL Server
            Microsoft庐 SQL Server is a database management and analysis system for e-commerce, line-of-business, and data warehousing solutions.
            MariaDB
            Started by core members of the original MySQL team, MariaDB actively works with outside developers to deliver the most featureful, stable, and sanely licensed open SQL server in the industry. MariaDB is designed as a drop-in replacement of MySQL(R) with more features, new storage engines, fewer bugs, and better performance.

            We initially chose RethinkDB because of the schema-less document store features, and better durability resilience/story than MongoDB In the end, it didn't work out quite as we expected: there's plenty of scalability issues, it's near impossible to run analytical workloads and small community makes working with Rethink a challenge. We're in process of migrating all our workloads to PostgreSQL and hopefully, we will be able to decommission our RethinkDB deployment soon.

            High-speed update-aware storage used in our region server infrastructure; provides a good middle layer for storage of rapidly modified information.
