Would you like some Mongo with your Postgres?

Speaking of PostgreSQL, ToroDB is a JSON database that runs on top of Postgres. JSON documents are stored relationally, not as a blob/jsonb. This leads to significant storage and I/O savings. It speaks natively the MongoDB protocol, meaning that it can be used with any mongo-compatible client. MongoDB client compatibility. Smart.

Check out the demos on the Strip homepage to see what the buzz is all about.
