LinDB vs RethinkDB: What are the differences?
LinDB: An open source Time Series Database *. It is a scalable, distributed, high performance, high availability Time Series Database. It takes a lot of best practice of TSDB and implements some optimizations based on the characteristics of time series data. It supports rollup in specific interval automatically after creating the database; *RethinkDB:** 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.
LinDB and RethinkDB can be categorized as "Databases" tools.
LinDB and RethinkDB are both open source tools. It seems that RethinkDB with 22.5K GitHub stars and 1.75K forks on GitHub has more adoption than LinDB with 744 GitHub stars and 80 GitHub forks.

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.
Main database, using it in multiple datacenters in an active-active configuration.
