Aerospike is an open-source, modern database built from the ground up to push the limits of flash storage, processors and networks. It was designed to operate with predictable low latency at high throughput with uncompromising reliability – both high availability and ACID guarantees.
- 99% of reads/writes complete in under 1 millisecond.
- Predictable low latency at high throughput – second to none. Read the YCSB Benchmark.
- The secret sauce? A thousand things done right. Server code in ‘C’ (not Java or Erlang) precisely tuned to avoid context switching and memory copies. Highly parallelized multi-threaded, multi-core, multi-cpu, multi-SSD execution.
- Indexes are always stored in RAM. Pure RAM mode is backed by spinning disks. In hybrid mode, individual tables are stored in either RAM or flash.
