Aerospike vs Memcached: What are the differences?
Developers describe Aerospike as "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. On the other hand, Memcached is detailed as "High-performance, distributed memory object caching system". Memcached is an in-memory key-value store for small chunks of arbitrary data (strings, objects) from results of database calls, API calls, or page rendering.
Aerospike and Memcached are primarily classified as "In-Memory Databases" and "Databases" tools respectively.
"Ram and/or ssd persistence " is the top reason why over 9 developers like Aerospike, while over 133 developers mention "Fast object cache" as the leading cause for choosing Memcached.
