Aerospike vs Tarantool: 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, Tarantool is detailed as "Free and open source an in-memory database and application server". 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 and Tarantool can be categorized 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, Tarantool provides the following key features:

  • Fast
  • Open source
  • Easy to use

Aerospike and Tarantool are both open source tools. Tarantool with 2.18K GitHub stars and 213 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Aerospike with 307 GitHub stars and 57 GitHub forks.

        What are some alternatives to Aerospike and Tarantool?
        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).
        Couchbase
        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 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.
