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.

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.
