compose is a startup. heroku was a startup when they started. in fact, if I have my timeline right then heroku managed postgres preceded RDS (http://www.zdnet.com/article/heroku-launches-cloud-postgres-... - 2011 versus https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon_Relational_Database_Ser... - 2013)

Rethinkdb is an incredible architecture. If I was in the market for something like rethinkdb/dynamodb, I would completely go with something that is built by the original inventors.

Just like docker for example.

Heroku was acquired by Salesforce in 2010, Compose by IBM in 2015 though.
