FoundationDB vs Redis: What are the differences?
Developers describe FoundationDB as "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. On the other hand, Redis is detailed as "An in-memory database that persists on disk". 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.
FoundationDB and Redis are primarily classified as "Databases" and "In-Memory Databases" tools respectively.
"ACID transactions" is the primary reason why developers consider FoundationDB over the competitors, whereas "Performance" was stated as the key factor in picking Redis.
Redis is an open source tool with 37.4K GitHub stars and 14.4K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Redis's open source repository on GitHub.
