Sphinx vs YugabyteDB: What are the differences?

Sphinx: Open source full text search server, designed from the ground up with performance, relevance (aka search quality), and integration simplicity in mind. It lets you either batch index and search data stored in an SQL database, NoSQL storage, or just files quickly and easily — or index and search data on the fly, working with it pretty much as with a database server; YugabyteDB: High-performance, , cloud-native distributed SQL database. It is a high-performance distributed SQL database for powering global, internet-scale applications. Built using a unique combination of high-performance document store, per-shard distributed consensus replication and multi-shard ACID transactions.

Sphinx and YugabyteDB can be categorized as "Search Engines" tools.

Some of the features offered by Sphinx are:

  • Output formats: HTML (including Windows HTML Help), LaTeX (for printable PDF versions), ePub, Texinfo, manual pages, plain text
  • Extensive cross-references: semantic markup and automatic links for functions, classes, citations, glossary terms and similar pieces of information
  • Hierarchical structure: easy definition of a document tree, with automatic links to siblings, parents and children

On the other hand, YugabyteDB provides the following key features:

  • Global Resilience
  • Low Read Latency
  • Massive Write Scalability

YugabyteDB is an open source tool with 3.15K GitHub stars and 277 GitHub forks. Here's a link to YugabyteDB's open source repository on GitHub.

Jekyll takes your content, renders Markdown and Liquid templates, and spits out a complete, static website ready to be served by Apache, Nginx or another web server. Jekyll is the engine behind GitHub Pages, which you can use to host sites right from your GitHub repositories.
    Centrify
    It is privileged identity management and identity as a service solutions stop the breach by securing access to hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services.
