What is RethinkDB?
- Open-source database for building realtime web applications
- NoSQL database that stores schemaless JSON documents
- Distributed database that is easy to scale
- High availability database with automatic failover and robust fault tolerance
RethinkDB is the first open-source scalable database built for realtime applications. It exposes a new database access model – instead of polling for changes, the developer can tell the database to continuously push updated query results to applications in realtime. RethinkDB allows developers to build scalable realtime apps in a fraction of the time with less effort.
