RethinkDB 2.1 is Here & Out of Beta


RethinkDB 2.1 Comes to Compose With SSL & HA

Over the last few months, we’ve been working to bring some of our database offerings out of beta and today RethinkDB joins MongoDB, Elasticsearch, PostgreSQL and Redis as a fully-supported, production-ready database on the Compose platform.

Getting to this point with RethinkDB meant that our engineers worked closely with the RethinkDB team and community. We’re offering open-source databases, so it should only make sense that we’re a part of those communities and contributing to the projects, which we did with things like SSL support.

So what’s changing with this new version of RethinkDB on Compose? We’re bringing RethinkDB 2.1, Forbidden Planet, to the Compose platform. With 2.1 comes high availability. To get a solid HA RethinkDB deployment, we’ve upped the nodes per deployment from 2 to 3, replacing replication for HA with failover. This gives you a dependable deployment with near-zero downtime. Plus, you’ll now use SSL to connect to your database, giving some upgrades to security. If your RethinkDB driver doesn’t support SSL, hit us up and we’ll see if we can help contribute to the project

Pricing for the three node deployment will be $22.50 for the first GB of storage and $18 for each additional GB. If you’re using RethinkDB right now, you can go ahead and upgrade your deployment.

If you haven’t tried it yet, head over and spin up a deployment and try out RethinkDB for your real-time applications on the Compose Platform.
