Apache Ignite vs VoltDB: What are the differences?

Developers describe Apache Ignite as "An open-source distributed database, caching and processing platform *". It is a memory-centric distributed database, caching, and processing platform for transactional, analytical, and streaming workloads delivering in-memory speeds at petabyte scale. On the other hand, *VoltDB** is detailed as "In-memory relational DBMS capable of supporting millions of database operations per second". VoltDB is a fundamental redesign of the RDBMS that provides unparalleled performance and scalability on bare-metal, virtualized and cloud infrastructures. VoltDB is a modern in-memory architecture that supports both SQL + Java with data durability and fault tolerance.

Apache Ignite and VoltDB can be categorized as "In-Memory Databases" tools.

Some of the features offered by Apache Ignite are:

  • Memory-Centric Storage
  • Distributed SQL
  • Distributed Key-Value

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

  • In-Memory Performance with On-Disk Durability
  • Transparent Scalability with Data Consistency
  • NewSQL – All the benefits of SQL with Unlimited Scalability
