MongoDB 的替代方案 FerretDB 推出 1.0 (GA) 版本

Hacker News 上看到 FerretDB 推出 1.0 (GA) 版本:「FerretDB: open-source MongoDB alternative (」,原文在「Announcing FerretDB 1.0 GA - a truly Open Source MongoDB alternative」這邊。

當初有寫過「MangoDB 改名為 FerretDB (雪貂)」這篇,但沒注意到他們成立公司來開發?在「Careers at FerretDB」這邊可以看到 hiring 的訊息。

官網有整理出目標,像是他們提到不是以 drop-in replacement 為目標,而是實做核心功能與常用的功能,涵蓋大多數的使用者:

Is FerretDB 100% compatible with MongoDB?

It is not necessary, nor it is feasible to implement every single MongoDB feature out there. Our aim is to cover the core feature set of MongoDB, and then continue adding features which could enhance the experience or increase application compatibility. Non-OSS alernatives of MongoDB are similar in this sense, eg. none of these products are able to provide the full feature set of MongoDB. We are aiming to please 85% of MongoDB users, not all of them.

但這樣也讓想換的人會有一些顧慮... 而且這邊的 85% 不知道是怎麼喊出來的?

OxideDB:另外一套用 PostgreSQL 為底的 MongoDB 相容層

看到 OxideDB 這個專案:

OxideDB is a translation layer that works as a MongoDB database server while using PostgreSQL's JSON capabilities as the underlying data store.

跟之前提到的 MangoDB 有些淵源 (參考「MangoDB:拿 PostgreSQL 當作後端的 MongoDB 相容層」),順便提一下 MangoDB 後來被要求改名為 FerretDB:「MangoDB 改名為 FerretDB (雪貂)」。

主要的差異在於 OxideDB 只以 PostgreSQL 為底層,另外是用 Rust 寫的:

The project was heavily inspired by FerretDB and is on its early days. The main difference is that there is no intention to support any database other than PostgreSQL (FerretDB is also supporting Tigris) and it's written in Rust, as opposed to Go.

看起來大家都拿 PostgreSQL 在搞事,但這個專案裡面好像沒搜到 GIN 這個關鍵字,不知道是不是連 index 都沒下...

MangoDB 改名為 FerretDB (雪貂)

先前提到的 MongoDB 相容方案 MangoDB,透過PostgreSQL 當底層而且維持 open source license 的方案 (參考先前寫的「MangoDB:拿 PostgreSQL 當作後端的 MongoDB 相容層」),正式改名為 FerretDB:「MangoDB has a new name, and the momentum is stronger than ever. Meet FerretDB!」。

依照官方的說明,應該就是收到 C&D notice 了:

Moreover, a representative of MongoDB Inc. asked us to stop using the MangoDB name on our website, GitHub, or anywhere else, due to similarity or potential confusion.

Hacker News 上沒什麼討論,不過這邊還是列一下:「MangoDB has a new name (」,裡面有提到另外的「Ferret Database」這個網站,看起來是真的雪貂網站 XDDD
