Mastering RethinkDB

By: Shahid Shaikh

Overview of this book

RethinkDB has a lot of cool things to be excited about: ReQL (its readable,highly-functional syntax), cluster management, primitives for 21st century applications, and change-feeds. This book starts with a brief overview of the RethinkDB architecture and data modeling, and coverage of the advanced ReQL queries to work with JSON documents. Then, you will quickly jump to implementing these concepts in real-world scenarios, by building real-time applications on polling, data synchronization, share market, and the geospatial domain using RethinkDB and Node.js. You will also see how to tweak RethinkDB's capabilities to ensure faster data processing by exploring the sharding and replication techniques in depth. Then, we will take you through the more advanced administration tasks as well as show you the various deployment techniques using PaaS, Docker, and Compose. By the time you have finished reading this book, you would have taken your knowledge of RethinkDB to the next level, and will be able to use the concepts in RethinkDB to develop efficient, real-time applications with ease.

Deploying RethinkDB using Docker

Docker is a revolutionary tool that helps automate deployments. It uses platform-level container technology to make it easy to compose isolated software components in a reproducible way.

The official website of Docker is as follows:

Lots of infrastructure-related tools, ranging from self-hosted PaaS applications to cluster management systems, are built around the Docker ecosystem.

The need for Docker

Your code is not working in Production? But it's working on the QA (quality analysis server)!

I am sure you have heard statements like these in your team during the deployment phase. Well no more of that, Docker everything and forget about the infrastructure of different environments, say, QA, Staging and Production, because your code is going to run Docker container not in those machines, hence write once, run everywhere.

In this section, we will learn how to use Docker to deploy a RethinkDB Server or PaaS services. I am going to cover...
