        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.

        ScyllaDB provides all of the goodies of Apache Cassandra, including HA, multiDC, replication sharding and so forth. The implementation is in C++ and the internal design is better and thus it achieves 10X the throughput, low 99% latency and more
