FoundationDB vs Riak: 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; Riak: A distributed, decentralized data storage system. Riak is a distributed database designed to deliver maximum data availability by distributing data across multiple servers. As long as your client can reach one Riak server, it should be able to write data. In most failure scenarios, the data you want to read should be available, although it may not be the most up-to-date version of that data.

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

"ACID transactions" is the top reason why over 2 developers like FoundationDB, while over 9 developers mention "High Performance " as the leading cause for choosing Riak.

Riak is an open source tool with 3.24K GitHub stars and 530 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Riak's open source repository on GitHub.

        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.
