RocksDB is a low-latency embedded key value database created by Facebook engineers.
It is based on the LevelDB which was created by Google Engineers Jeffrey Dean and Sanjay Ghemawat.

According the rocksdb website, it offers the following advantages compared to LevelDB:
– much better performance for databases larger than RAM
– great performance for IO bound workloads
– fixed frequent write-stalls with LevelDB that caused 99-percentile latency
