MarkLogic vs RocksDB: What are the differences?
What is MarkLogic? Schema-agnostic Enterprise NoSQL database technology, coupled w/ powerful search & flexible application services. MarkLogic is the only Enterprise NoSQL database, bringing all the features you need into one unified system: a document-centric, schema-agnostic, structure-aware, clustered, transactional, secure, database server with built-in search and a full suite of application services.
What is 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.
MarkLogic and RocksDB can be categorized as "Databases" tools.
Some of the features offered by MarkLogic are:
- Search and Query
- ACID Transactions
- High Availability and Disaster Recovery
On the other hand, RocksDB provides the following key features:
- Designed for application servers wanting to store up to a few terabytes of data on locally attached Flash drives or in RAM
- Optimized for storing small to medium size key-values on fast storage -- flash devices or in-memory
- Scales linearly with number of CPUs so that it works well on ARM processors
"RDF Triples" is the top reason why over 3 developers like MarkLogic, while over 2 developers mention "Very fast" as the leading cause for choosing RocksDB.
