Quality scalable and easy-to-use database

  • January 26, 2018
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
ReQL, RethinkDB's query language is one of my absolute favourite things it offers. As someone who isn't very fond of generic SQL databases, ReQL feels just like programming, and I don't have to shift mind-sets to think about another language.
What do you dislike?
Unfortunately, RethinkDB is no longer actively developed, and was the company behind RethinkDB officially shut down in October 2016. The project has since joined The Linux Foundation and has seen one update in mid-2017, but the future for RethinkDB isn't looking too positive currently.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
RethinkDB's powers all of our database needs in our business. From managing customer game servers, to running our entire OAuth 2.0 API, RethinkDB is behind it all. Its real-time queries have been a godsend for managing real-time data with game servers and other aspects of our API.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
RethinkDB is a great database engine, but be wary of the fact that its release cycle has slowed down drastically since moving to The Linux Foundation. We're hoping that this improves in 2018, but are starting to discuss internally about its viability in the next few years.

Modern Query Language and Scales Well

  • March 12, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
RethinkDB raises the bar: it has a modern query language (i.e., it's very intuitive) and it scales well in enterprise (i.e., massively parallel distributed infrastructure). Also, RethinkDB is a must for realtime apps. A
What do you dislike?
Adoption isn't very widespread in industry, as in many developers I know tend to play it safe with MySQL. There are simply too many restrictions with which operations can be performed atomically that it can't be adopted for tier one services such as user/org, login, sessions, etc.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
RethinkDB definitely beats out other realtime DBs such as Firebase that are much less flexible. I think RethinkDB would work great for real time features within enterprise. It's much more intuitive than Mongo, so any situation in which I would consider Mongo, RethinkDB would definitely be in the talk.

My RethinkDB Review

  • March 11, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The way you get to query the database. It is absolutely brilliant. Being a fan of functional programming, it had been a god send to me. And then there is the real time change facilities although I dont use that much.
What do you dislike?
Performance. The insertion, especially the batch insertion performance is rather slow. Also foubd it to be slower in geo queries compared to Mongo or Postgres with the same data.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Notification system fora business automation system and a location database for a vehicle tracking system. I am storing vehicle's locations in realtime to RethinkDB and it gets queried by the browser and dropped to the map. Also nearest landmark queries are made.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
It has some performance issues, but it is gettibg improved with each upgrade. Other than that ut is a fantastic product.

Rethink DB review

  • March 10, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The query language is amazing compared to other NoSQL query languages. I have only used MongoDB and Redis and compared to MongoDB, the query language is absolutely superb.
What do you dislike?
The fact that it lacks atomic updates across multiple documents. This is the sole reason why we have switched to Postgres: Our data model became so much simpler once we could rely on transparent transactions.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I used RethinkDB to model a document editor backend.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Although it's much easier to use than other NoSQL databases, it's still falls behind Postgres for situations where you need more than one record updated atomically.

Thanks RethinkDB and aws marketplace, their gread job makes our DB life even more easier.

If you can provide a init config interface (ssh/web UI), it will make things perfect more than good enough.

For me I'm eager to require a one step join to cluster configuration.

Best regards.
