πŸ“Key-value stores can be used as database storage engines

Key-value stores provide primitive API but are very fast and solve persistence. They are good ground for implementing higher-level databases (document, graph, etc.) and some databases are implemented in this way.

Examples

  • CoackroachDB uses RocksDB as its storage engine
  • ArangoDB uses RocksDB as a default backend starting from version 3.4.
