I'm interested in (but haven't had a reason to play around with) Riak. The setup is more work than Couch, but you get the Lucene component built-in. I really wish the admin UI was better. Couch's Futon UI leaves a lot to be desired, but at least you can view your data. In their documentation, Riak has several comparisons with other NoSQL databases (including Mongo and Couch).
RethinkDB seems cool although it's only NoSQL by a technicality: ReQL is basically SQL.
Now if only one of these supported spatial queries in a reasonable way...
Posted 9 Mar 2014You're probably going to want to put Apache/Nginx in front of it in production anyways, so how much effort are you really saving there?
Node is used at several big companies, but what are they using it for and how long have they used it? Interesting post about PayPal moving to NodeJS from an in-house Spring based framework.
NPM is interesting but I'd be worried about picking the wrong modules. How confident are you that module X is going to continue to be developed in the future and doesn't have any major flaws that will lay dormant until production? Also it's worth pointing out that other languages have module systems (Perl's CPAN, Java's Maven). Application servers like Glassfish and JBoss may be unpopular, but they come with a standard set of modules that have been battled tested and proven to interoperate. Commercial support is available if you need it. Both come with databases, message queues, email, servlets, logging, threading, etc.
Posted 30 Nov 2013New version of my script: http://pastebin.com/hrcgg940
It uses mcrcon to control the server instead of Screen.
- Manages one server (start/stop/restart/status).
- Does fast incremental backups with rsync (number of backups to keep is configurable).
- Checks to see if there is a newer version of the server and updates if there is.
- Started to add logging via syslog.
As usual, no warranty etc.

Posted 2 Oct 2013This still appears to be an issue.
