Aerospike vs GridDB: 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 GridDB? Open source time series database for IoT and Big Data. It is a highly scalable, in-memory NoSQL time series database optimized for IoT and Big Data. It has a KVS (Key-Value Store)-type data model that is suitable for sensor data stored in a timeseries. It is a database that can be easily scaled-out according to the number of sensors.
Aerospike and GridDB can be primarily classified as "In-Memory Databases" tools.
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, GridDB provides the following key features:
- IoT Data Model
- Horizontal Scalability
