RethinkDB vs ToroDB: What are the differences?

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; ToroDB: Open source, document-oriented, JSON database that runs on top of PostgreSQL. ToroDB is an open source, document-oriented, JSON database that runs on top of PostgreSQL, providing storage and I/O savings and ACID semantics. ToroDB is MongoDB-compatible, so you can use Mongo clients to connect to it.

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

Some of the features offered by RethinkDB are:

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

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

  • Document-oriented (JSON)
  • Store data reliabily and durably with PostgreSQL
  • Use MongoDB clients to connect to it

RethinkDB and ToroDB are both open source tools. It seems that RethinkDB with 22.4K GitHub stars and 1.74K forks on GitHub has more adoption than ToroDB with 10 GitHub stars and 2 GitHub forks.

          What are some alternatives to RethinkDB and ToroDB?
          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.
          CouchDB
          Apache CouchDB is a database that uses JSON for documents, JavaScript for MapReduce indexes, and regular HTTP for its API. CouchDB is a database that completely embraces the web. Store your data with JSON documents. Access your documents and query your indexes with your web browser, via HTTP. Index, combine, and transform your documents with JavaScript.
          CockroachDB
          Cockroach Labs is the company building CockroachDB, an open source, survivable, strongly consistent, scale-out SQL database.
          Couchbase
          Developed as an alternative to traditionally inflexible SQL databases, the Couchbase NoSQL database is built on an open source foundation and architected to help developers solve real-world problems and meet high scalability demands.
          Firebase
          Firebase is a cloud service designed to power real-time, collaborative applications. Simply add the Firebase library to your application to gain access to a shared data structure; any changes you make to that data are automatically synchronized with the Firebase cloud and with other clients within milliseconds.

          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.
