IBM DB2 vs RocksDB: What are the differences?

IBM DB2: A family of database server products developed by IBM. DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows is optimized to deliver industry-leading performance across multiple workloads, while lowering administration, storage, development, and server costs; RocksDB: Embeddable persistent key-value store for fast storage, developed and maintained by Facebook Database Engineering Team. RocksDB is an embeddable persistent key-value store for fast storage. RocksDB can also be the foundation for a client-server database but our current focus is on embedded workloads. RocksDB builds on LevelDB to be scalable to run on servers with many CPU cores, to efficiently use fast storage, to support IO-bound, in-memory and write-once workloads, and to be flexible to allow for innovation.

IBM DB2 and RocksDB can be primarily classified as "Databases" tools.

"Rock solid and very scalable" is the primary reason why developers consider IBM DB2 over the competitors, whereas "Very fast" was stated as the key factor in picking RocksDB.

RocksDB is an open source tool with 14.3K GitHub stars and 3.12K GitHub forks. Here's a link to RocksDB's open source repository on GitHub.
