Production grade databases in Rust

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/rust

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time
  • Mergify - Updating dependencies is time-consuming.
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • sled

    the champagne of beta embedded databases

    There is a valid argument to be made for threads over async in a large percentage of use cases where async is considered the default. If this is what you are referring to however, I don't think they ever referred to async as completely useless:

  • tikv

    Distributed transactional key-value database, originally created to complement TiDB

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • rio

    pure rust io_uring library, built on libc, thread & async friendly, misuse resistant (by spacejam)

    Also, not to be too bad about a reputation fallacy, but I found the author to be flippant and disrespectful when good-faith unsoundness was pointed out in his crates:

  • neon

    Neon: Serverless Postgres. We separated storage and compute to offer autoscaling, branching, and bottomless storage.


  • quickwit

    Sub-second search & analytics engine on cloud storage


  • MeiliSearch

    A lightning-fast search engine that fits effortlessly into your apps, websites, and workflow.


  • readyset

    ReadySet is a lightweight SQL cache that enhances the performance and scalability of your DB without any code changes.


  • Mergify

    Updating dependencies is time-consuming.. Solutions like Dependabot or Renovate update but don't merge dependencies. You need to do it manually while it could be fully automated! Add a Merge Queue to your workflow and stop caring about PR management & merging. Try Mergify for free.

  • influxdb_iox

    Pronounced (influxdb eye-ox), short for iron oxide. This is the new core of InfluxDB written in Rust on top of Apache Arrow.

    InfluxDB iox

  • mimir

    ⚡ Supercharged Flutter/Dart Database (by GregoryConrad)

  • pgrx

    Build Postgres Extensions with Rust!

  • plrust

    A Rust procedural language handler for PostgreSQL

  • wikimedia-rs

    Rust crate and tools to download and view data from Wikimedia

  • orioledb

    OrioleDB – building a modern cloud-native storage engine (... and solving some PostgreSQL wicked problems)  🇺🇦

    You don’t need a database written (or rewritten in Rust). we’re working to make Postgres scalable for the next decade too
