LiteDB vs RocksDB: What are the differences?

What is LiteDB? A .Net NoSQL Document Store in a single data file. Embedded NoSQL database for .NET An open source MongoDB-like database with zero configuration - mobile ready.

What is RocksDB? Embeddable persistent key-value store for fast storage, developed and maintained by Facebook Database Engineering Team. RocksDB is an embeddable persistent key-value store for fast storage. RocksDB can also be the foundation for a client-server database but our current focus is on embedded workloads. RocksDB builds on LevelDB to be scalable to run on servers with many CPU cores, to efficiently use fast storage, to support IO-bound, in-memory and write-once workloads, and to be flexible to allow for innovation.

LiteDB and RocksDB can be categorized as "Databases" tools.

Some of the features offered by LiteDB are:

  • Standalone database
  • Fast and lightweight
  • Free for everyone, including commercial use

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

  • Designed for application servers wanting to store up to a few terabytes of data on locally attached Flash drives or in RAM
  • Optimized for storing small to medium size key-values on fast storage -- flash devices or in-memory
  • Scales linearly with number of CPUs so that it works well on ARM processors

LiteDB and RocksDB are both open source tools. RocksDB with 14.3K GitHub stars and 3.12K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than LiteDB with 4.03K GitHub stars and 673 GitHub forks.

    What are some alternatives to LiteDB and RocksDB?
    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.
    SQLite
    SQLite is an embedded SQL database engine. Unlike most other SQL databases, SQLite does not have a separate server process. SQLite reads and writes directly to ordinary disk files. A complete SQL database with multiple tables, indices, triggers, and views, is contained in a single disk file.
    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.
    Realm
    The Realm Mobile Platform is a next-generation data layer for applications. Realm is reactive, concurrent, and lightweight, allowing you to work with live, native objects.
    Redis
    Redis is an open source (BSD licensed), in-memory data structure store, used as a database, cache, and message broker. Redis provides data structures such as strings, hashes, lists, sets, sorted sets with range queries, bitmaps, hyperloglogs, geospatial indexes, and streams.
