FoundationDB vs HBase: What are the differences?

FoundationDB: Multi-model database with particularly strong fault tolerance, performance, and operational ease. FoundationDB is a NoSQL database with a shared nothing architecture. Designed around a "core" ordered key-value database, additional features and data models are supplied in layers. The key-value database, as well as all layers, supports full, cross-key and cross-server ACID transactions; HBase: The Hadoop database, a distributed, scalable, big data store. Apache HBase is an open-source, distributed, versioned, column-oriented store modeled after Google' Bigtable: A Distributed Storage System for Structured Data by Chang et al. Just as Bigtable leverages the distributed data storage provided by the Google File System, HBase provides Bigtable-like capabilities on top of Apache Hadoop.

FoundationDB and HBase belong to "Databases" category of the tech stack.

"ACID transactions" is the primary reason why developers consider FoundationDB over the competitors, whereas "Performance" was stated as the key factor in picking HBase.

HBase is an open source tool with 2.91K GitHub stars and 2.01K GitHub forks. Here's a link to HBase's open source repository on GitHub.

        What are some alternatives to FoundationDB and HBase?
        CockroachDB
        Cockroach Labs is the company building CockroachDB, an open source, survivable, strongly consistent, scale-out SQL database.
        MongoDB
        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.
        Redis
        Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.
        Cassandra
        Partitioning means that Cassandra can distribute your data across multiple machines in an application-transparent matter. Cassandra will automatically repartition as machines are added and removed from the cluster. Row store means that like relational databases, Cassandra organizes data by rows and columns. The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) is a close relative of SQL.
        Couchbase
        Developed as an alternative to traditionally inflexible SQL databases, the Couchbase NoSQL database is built on an open source foundation and architected to help developers solve real-world problems and meet high scalability demands.

        The final output is inserted into HBase to serve the experiment dashboard. We also load the output data to Redshift for ad-hoc analysis. For real-time experiment data processing, we use Storm to tail Kafka and process data in real-time and insert metrics into MySQL, so we could identify group allocation problems and send out real-time alerts and metrics.
