Aerospike vs Couchbase: What are the differences?

What is Aerospike? Flash-optimized in-memory open source NoSQL database. 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.

What is Couchbase? Document-Oriented NoSQL Database. Developed as an alternative to traditionally inflexible SQL databases, the Couchbase NoSQL database is built on an open source foundation and architected to help developers solve real-world problems and meet high scalability demands.

Aerospike belongs to "In-Memory Databases" category of the tech stack, while Couchbase can be primarily classified under "Databases".

Some of the features offered by Aerospike are:

  • 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.

On the other hand, Couchbase provides the following key features:

  • JSON document database
  • N1QL (SQL-like query language)
  • Secondary Indexing

"Ram and/or ssd persistence " is the top reason why over 9 developers like Aerospike, while over 13 developers mention "Flexible data model, easy scalability, extremely fast" as the leading cause for choosing Couchbase.

Aerospike is an open source tool with 295 GitHub stars and 54 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Aerospike's open source repository on GitHub.

Geefu, Vestiaire Collective, and opening.io are some of the popular companies that use Couchbase, whereas Aerospike is used by JustWatch, Flyclops LLC, and StreetHawk. Couchbase has a broader approval, being mentioned in 45 company stacks & 21 developers stacks; compared to Aerospike, which is listed in 30 company stacks and 9 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to Aerospike and Couchbase?
      Redis
      Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.
      Riak
      Riak is a distributed database designed to deliver maximum data availability by distributing data across multiple servers. As long as your client can reach one Riak server, it should be able to write data. In most failure scenarios, the data you want to read should be available, although it may not be the most up-to-date version of that data.
      Cassandra
      Partitioning means that Cassandra can distribute your data across multiple machines in an application-transparent matter. Cassandra will automatically repartition as machines are added and removed from the cluster. Row store means that like relational databases, Cassandra organizes data by rows and columns. The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) is a close relative of SQL.
      Elasticsearch
      Elasticsearch is a distributed, RESTful search and analytics engine capable of storing data and searching it in near real time. Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats and Logstash are the Elastic Stack (sometimes called the ELK Stack).
      Tarantool
      It is designed to give you the flexibility, scalability, and performance that you want, as well as the reliability and manageability that you need in mission-critical applications

      Aerospike is used heavily in our real time kafka pipeline. We use it two ways: we harness the fast key-value store lookup and leveraging Aerospikes ACID capabilities through UDFs we could manage updates in real time.

      We use Couchbase heavily in our PowerStandings platform to enable real-time analytics of agent data, as well as data storage for parts of our new Playbooks product.

      Main data storage. Any writes to Couchbase auto-replicate to Elasticsearch (via XDRC) and from there on propagate into the internal Jezebel pipeline via opes.
