ClustrixDB vs CrateIO: What are the differences?
What is ClustrixDB? Clustered SQL database built for e-commerce. ClustrixDB is a scale-out SQL database built from the ground up with a distributed shared nothing architecture, automatic data redistribution (so you never need to shard), with built in fault tolerance, all accessible by a simple SQL interface and support for business critical MySQL features – replication, triggers, stored routines, etc.
What is CrateIO? The Distributed Database for Docker. Crate is a distributed data store. Simply install Crate directly on your application servers and make the big centralized database a thing of the past. Crate takes care of synchronization, sharding, scaling, and replication even for mammoth data sets.
ClustrixDB and CrateIO can be primarily classified as "Databases" tools.
Some of the features offered by ClustrixDB are:
- Is built from the ground up with a shared-nothing architecture. There is no MySQL code in ClustrixDB
- Is built to scale transactions while maintaning ACID
- Scales to add capacity by simply adding commodity servers to the cluster
On the other hand, CrateIO provides the following key features:
- Familiar SQL syntax
- Semi-structured data
- High availability, resiliency, and scalability in a distributed design
