GenieDB vs TempoDB: What are the differences?
Developers describe GenieDB as "Multi-master, multi-cloud, geo-distributed MySQL database". GenieDB’s DBaaS uses multi-master replication and multi-regional distribution on multiple cloud infrastructures (Amazon AWS, IBM Softlayer, DigitalOcean, Rackspace Cloud, and Google Cloud) to help reduce latency, eliminate downtime, and easily scale your database. On the other hand, TempoDB is detailed as "Store & analyze time series data from sensors, smart meters, servers & more". TempoDB is the first database service for time series data (ex: measuring thermostat temperatures, network latencies, heart rates). Time series is a unique Big Data problem that breaks traditional databases (MySQL, MongoDB, etc). Today, businesses spend months and millions attempting to build solutions to manage all this data and yet still fail to store as much as they need or analyze it effectively. TempoDB is a purpose-built database service that enables businesses to store and analyze massive streams of time series data, so they can learn from the past, understand the present, and predict the future.
GenieDB and TempoDB can be primarily classified as "SQL Database as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by GenieDB are:
- Multi-master replication with auto-conflict resolution
- Geo-distribution across multiple regions and cloud providers using eventual consistency model with geo-compliance
- Auto-recovery and healing with re-synchronization
On the other hand, TempoDB provides the following key features:
- Flexible, powerful API
- Store as much high resolution (1 ms max) time series data as you need for long range historical analysis
- We guarantee data availability and protect against loss by replicating each live datapoint 3x and using geographically distributed backup environments
