PostgreSQL vs rqlite: What are the differences?
Developers describe PostgreSQL as "A powerful, open source object-relational database system". 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. On the other hand, rqlite is detailed as "The lightweight, distributed relational database built on SQLite". rqlite is a distributed relational database, which uses SQLite as its storage engine. rqlite uses Raft to achieve consensus across all the instances of the SQLite databases, ensuring that every change made to the system is made to a quorum of SQLite databases, or none at all.
PostgreSQL and rqlite belong to "Databases" category of the tech stack.
PostgreSQL and rqlite are both open source tools. PostgreSQL with 5.44K GitHub stars and 1.8K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than rqlite with 4.64K GitHub stars and 259 GitHub forks.
