IonDB vs BigchainDB: What are the differences?
What is IonDB? A key-value store for microcontroller and IoT applications. Currently in the Arduino world, there doesn't exist an associative array or map implementation that is both easy to use and performance competitive. There also is little support for disk based storage options that don't involve writing it yourself. IonDB is fast, functional, and offers disk based storage out of the box.
What is BigchainDB? A database with blockchain characteristics. It is designed to merge the best of two worlds: the “traditional” distributed database world and the “traditional” blockchain world. With high throughput, low latency, powerful query functionality, decentralized control, immutable data storage and built-in asset support.
IonDB and BigchainDB belong to "Databases" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by IonDB are:
- Storing arbitrary values associated to a key
- Duplicate key support
- Range and Equality queries
On the other hand, BigchainDB provides the following key features:
- Native Support of Multiassets
IonDB and BigchainDB are both open source tools. It seems that BigchainDB with 3.33K GitHub stars and 676 forks on GitHub has more adoption than IonDB with 530 GitHub stars and 39 GitHub forks.
