How an Ethereum client stores the blockchain data in the disk?

I know two of the major Ethereum clients is go-ethereum and parity, so I'm also asking if they store data in a different way or if there are some common threads?


It is not mandatory that clients store the same data or use the same storage implementation.

For example geth uses LevelDB and parity uses RocksDB as storage backend.
