Dgraph 在推銷自家發展出來的 Badger：「Introducing Badger: A fast key-value store written natively in Go」。
標靶是 RocksDB，號稱比 RocksDB 快好幾倍：
Based on benchmarks, Badger is at least 3.5x faster than RocksDB when doing random reads. For value sizes between 128B to 16KB, data loading is 0.86x - 14x faster compared to RocksDB, with Badger gaining significant ground as value size increases. On the flip side, Badger is currently slower for range key-value iteration, but that has a lot of room for optimization.
不過我覺得有些重要的功能在 Badger 不提供，這比起來有種橘子比蘋果的感覺... 像是 RocksDB 提供了 Transaction，而 Badger 則是直接講明他們不打算支援 Transaction：
Keep it simple, stupid. No support for transactions, versioning or snapshots -- anything that can be done outside of the store should be done outside.
