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.
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.
