RethinkDB has just launched its 1.0 release to the public, and it’s offering a product geared toward NoSQL installations — and it will work on SSDs, traditional drives, and cloud-based services like AWS. The startup has also moved away from MySQL and now fully supports Memcached.

Akhmechet says that the main incentive to use RethinkDB is speed — he believes that it’s eight times faster than other solutions on the market. He adds that while it’s “pretty easy to build something that’s faster at one thing, it’s harder to do fast in general. And we’re fast in general.” The company has some detailed benchmarks listed on this page.

In addition to improved load times, Akhmechet says that RethinkDB can actually save companies money by reducing how much they need to spend on infrastructure and cloud services (for example, he says you could jump from a high-end node on EC2 to a less expensive tier and achieve the same performance).
