RocksDB vs ToroDB: What are the differences?

RocksDB: Embeddable persistent key-value store for fast storage, developed and maintained by Facebook Database Engineering Team. RocksDB is an embeddable persistent key-value store for fast storage. RocksDB can also be the foundation for a client-server database but our current focus is on embedded workloads. RocksDB builds on LevelDB to be scalable to run on servers with many CPU cores, to efficiently use fast storage, to support IO-bound, in-memory and write-once workloads, and to be flexible to allow for innovation; 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.

RocksDB and ToroDB belong to "Databases" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by RocksDB are:

  • Designed for application servers wanting to store up to a few terabytes of data on locally attached Flash drives or in RAM
  • Optimized for storing small to medium size key-values on fast storage -- flash devices or in-memory
  • Scales linearly with number of CPUs so that it works well on ARM processors

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

RocksDB and ToroDB are both open source tools. RocksDB with 14.3K GitHub stars and 3.12K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than ToroDB with 10 GitHub stars and 2 GitHub forks.

      What are some alternatives to RocksDB and ToroDB?
      Redis
      Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.
      Cassandra
      Partitioning means that Cassandra can distribute your data across multiple machines in an application-transparent matter. Cassandra will automatically repartition as machines are added and removed from the cluster. Row store means that like relational databases, Cassandra organizes data by rows and columns. The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) is a close relative of SQL.
      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.
      Badger
      Domain management you'll enjoy. Domains effectively drive the entire internet, shouldn't they be easier to manage? We thought so, and thus, Badger was born! You shouldn't have to auction off your house and sacrifice your first born to transfer domains, you should be able to press a button that says "Transfer Domain" and be done with it. That is our philosophy, and we think you will appreciate it. Stop letting domain registrars badger you, and start using... Badger!
      Aerospike
      Aerospike is an open-source, modern database built from the ground up to push the limits of flash storage, processors and networks. It was designed to operate with predictable low latency at high throughput with uncompromising reliability – both high availability and ACID guarantees.
