It has a pleasant query language that supports really useful queries like table joins and group by, and is easy to setup and learn.

What is TrailDB? An efficient tool for storing and querying series of events, by AdRoll. TrailDB's secret sauce is data compression. It leverages predictability of time-based data to compress your data to a fraction of its original size. In contrast to traditional compression, you can query the encoded data directly, decompressing only the parts you need.

            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.
