ClearDB vs JAWS: What are the differences?

What is ClearDB? Fault tolerant database-as-a-service in the cloud for your MySQL powered applications. ClearDB uses a combination of advanced replication techniques, advanced cluster technology, and layered web services to provide you with a MySQL database that is "smarter" than usual.

What is JAWS? Javascript + AWS Stack – A server-free, webapp boilerplate using bleeding-edge AWS services. The Javascript + AWS Stack – A server-free, webapp boilerplate using bleeding-edge AWS services that redefine how to build massively scalable web applications.

ClearDB belongs to "SQL Database as a Service" category of the tech stack, while JAWS can be primarily classified under "Frameworks (Full Stack)".

Some of the features offered by ClearDB are:

  • Global Multi-Master Design- ClearDB uses geo-distributed MySQL database configurations for the ultimate in database availability, survivability, and performance. Even if whole cloud regions go offline, your database will stay online.
  • Completely Fault Tolerant- ClearDB is the only cloud database in the market today that offers true multi-regional read/write mirroring with 100% uptime, even if networks or disks fail.
  • Native MySQL- Our clusters use native MySQL so that you don't have to worry about re-tuning your applications to work with ClearDB.

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

  • Use No Servers: Never deal with scaling/deploying/maintaing/monitoring servers again.
  • Isolated Components: The JAWS back-end is comprised entirely of AWS Lambda Functions.
  • Scale Infinitely: A back-end comprised of Lambda functions comes with a ton of concurrency and you can easily enable multi-region redundancy.

JAWS is an open source tool with 30.9K GitHub stars and 3.43K GitHub forks. Here's a link to JAWS's open source repository on GitHub.

          MySQL
          The MySQL software delivers a very fast, multi-threaded, multi-user, and robust SQL (Structured Query Language) database server. MySQL Server is intended for mission-critical, heavy-load production systems as well as for embedding into mass-deployed software.
          Heroku Postgres
          Heroku Postgres provides a SQL database-as-a-service that lets you focus on building your application instead of messing around with database management.
          Firebase
          Firebase is a cloud service designed to power real-time, collaborative applications. Simply add the Firebase library to your application to gain access to a shared data structure; any changes you make to that data are automatically synchronized with the Firebase cloud and with other clients within milliseconds.
          Amazon RDS
          Amazon RDS gives you access to the capabilities of a familiar MySQL, Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server database engine. This means that the code, applications, and tools you already use today with your existing databases can be used with Amazon RDS. Amazon RDS automatically patches the database software and backs up your database, storing the backups for a user-defined retention period and enabling point-in-time recovery. You benefit from the flexibility of being able to scale the compute resources or storage capacity associated with your Database Instance (DB Instance) via a single API call.
          Amazon RDS for Aurora
          Amazon Aurora is a MySQL-compatible, relational database engine that combines the speed and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. Amazon Aurora provides up to five times better performance than MySQL at a price point one tenth that of a commercial database while delivering similar performance and availability.
