SQLite vs TokuMX: What are the differences?

Developers describe SQLite as "A software library that implements a self-contained, serverless, zero-configuration, transactional SQL database engine". SQLite is an embedded SQL database engine. Unlike most other SQL databases, SQLite does not have a separate server process. SQLite reads and writes directly to ordinary disk files. A complete SQL database with multiple tables, indices, triggers, and views, is contained in a single disk file. On the other hand, TokuMX is detailed as "A high-performance, concurrent, compressing, drop-in replacement engine for MongoDB". TokuMX is a drop-in replacement for MongoDB, and offers 20X performance improvements, 90% reduction in database size, and support for ACID transactions with MVCC. TokuMX has the same binaries, supports the same drivers, data model, and features of MongoDB, because it shares much of its code with MongoDB.

SQLite and TokuMX can be primarily classified as "Databases" tools.

"Lightweight" is the primary reason why developers consider SQLite over the competitors, whereas "When your two-week MongoDB love affair ends, try this" was stated as the key factor in picking TokuMX.

TokuMX is an open source tool with 679 GitHub stars and 90 GitHub forks. Here's a link to TokuMX's open source repository on GitHub.

    SQLite is a tricky beast. It's great if you're working single-threaded, but a Terrible Idea if you've got more than one concurrent connection. You use it because it's easy to setup, light, and portable (it's just a file).

    In Paperless, we've built a self-hosted web application, so it makes sense to standardise on something small & light, and as we don't have to worry about multiple connections (it's just you using the app), it's a perfect fit.

    For users wanting to scale Paperless up to a multi-user environment though, we do provide the hooks to switch to PostgreSQL .

    We build queries in PHP with DSQL that work with SQLite. We also have SQLite data controller, so that you can build SQLite-based models.

    Used during the "build process" of Coolfront Mobile's Flat rate search engine database. Flat rate data that resides in Salesforce is transformed using SQLite into a format that is usable for our mobile Flat rate search engine (AKA: Charlie).

    RDBTools is a self-hosted application, and it is important that the installation process is simple. With SQLite, we create a new database file for every analysis. Once the analysis is done, the SQLite file can be thrown away easily.

    All the dynamic data (i.e.: jobs) is stored in a simple SQLite database.

    Все динамические данные (вакансии) хранятся в простой SQLite БД.

    There's really no call for something heavier for this site. SQLite is simple, easy to use and quite reliable given its age.
