ClustrixDB vs TiDB: What are the differences?

<Write Introduction here>
  1. Scalability: ClustrixDB is designed for scaling out by adding more nodes to distribute the workload, while TiDB employs a shared-nothing architecture for horizontal scalability. ClustrixDB uses a sharded architecture where data is split across different nodes, while TiDB uses a multi-raft architecture to maintain data consistency and availability.
  2. Consistency Model: ClustrixDB supports immediate consistency, meaning all nodes see the same data at the same time, while TiDB offers eventual consistency, allowing for performance optimizations by relaxing consistency requirements.
  3. SQL Compatibility: ClustrixDB is compatible with MySQL at the SQL layer for ease of integration with existing applications, while TiDB is compatible with the MySQL protocol and supports a subset of MySQL syntax and functions.
  4. Storage Engine: ClustrixDB uses a distributed storage engine to store data across multiple nodes, while TiDB uses a distributed storage engine based on TiKV, a distributed transactional key-value store.
  5. High Availability: ClustrixDB provides automatic failover and data redundancy for high availability, while TiDB offers a similar high availability feature through distributed consensus and replication mechanisms.
  6. Optimization Techniques: ClustrixDB uses data sharding and replication for query optimization, while TiDB leverages algorithms like the RefactorDB algorithm to optimize query performance and data distribution.
In Summary, ClustrixDB and TiDB differ in terms of scalability, consistency model, SQL compatibility, storage engine, high availability, and optimization techniques.

What is ClustrixDB?

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 TiDB?

Inspired by the design of Google F1, TiDB supports the best features of both traditional RDBMS and NoSQL.

      Started by core members of the original MySQL team, MariaDB actively works with outside developers to deliver the most featureful, stable, and sanely licensed open SQL server in the industry. MariaDB is designed as a drop-in replacement of MySQL(R) with more features, new storage engines, fewer bugs, and better performance.
      MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
