When a player takes an action in a multiplayer game, every other player in the game needs to see the change in realtime. RethinkDB dramatically simplifies the data infrastructure for low latency, high throughput realtime interactions.
RethinkDB dramatically reduces the complexity of building realtime trading and optimization engines. Publish realtime updates to thousands of clients, and provide pricing updates to users in milliseconds.
Build realtime dashboards with RethinkDB data push notifications, and make instantaneous business decisions.
RethinkDB dramatically simplifies modern IoT infrastructures. Stream data between connected devices, enable messaging and signaling, and trigger actions in millions of devices in milliseconds.
RethinkDB integrates the latest advances in database technology. It has a modern distributed architecture, a highly-optimized buffer cache, and a state of the art storage engine. All of these components work together to create a robust, scalable, high-performance database.
Developed by a core team of database experts and over 100 contributors from around the world, RethinkDB is shaped by developers like you participating in an open development process.
When you're ready to scale your app, shard and replicate in a few clicks using an intuitive web UI.
If you need it, a simple API provides precise control over the cluster:
