Cassandra - Scalable Distributed Database

  •        0

The Apache Cassandra Project develops a highly scalable second-generation distributed database, bringing together Dynamo's fully distributed design and Bigtable's ColumnFamily-based data model. Cassandra is suitable for applications that can't afford to lose data. Data is automatically replicated to multiple nodes for fault-tolerance.

Cassandra provides support for Scale out, load balancing, cluster growth, Flexible schema, Key-oriented queries and CAP theorem (Consistency, Availability, Partition tolerance). It is in use at Digg, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Rackspace, Cloudkick, Cisco and more companies.

Hypertable - A high performance, scalable, distributed storage and processing system for structured


Hypertable is based on Google's Bigtable Design, which is a proven scalable design that powers hundreds of Google services. Many of the current scalable NoSQL database offerings are based on a hash table design which means that the data they manage is not kept physically ordered. Hypertable keeps data physically sorted by a primary key and it is well suited for Analytics.

Cloudata - Structured Data Storage implementing Google's Bigtable.


Cloudata is Distributed Large scale Structured Data Storage, and open source project implementing Google's Bigtable. It's DBMS(Database Management System), but not Relational DBMS. It can store more than Peta bytes.

FlockDB - A distributed, fault-tolerant graph database from Twitter


FlockDB is much simpler than other graph databases such as neo4j because it tries to solve fewer problems. It scales horizontally and is designed for on-line, low-latency, high throughput environments such as web-sites. Twitter uses FlockDB to store social graphs (who follows whom, who blocks whom) and secondary indices. As of April 2010, the Twitter FlockDB cluster stores 13+ billion edges and sustains peak traffic of 20k writes/second and 100k reads/second.

Bagri - XML/Document DB on top of distributed cache


Bagri is a Document Database built on top of distributed cache solution like Hazelcast or Coherence. The system allows to process semi-structured schema-less documents and perform distributed queries on them in real-time. It scales horizontally very well with use of data sharding, when all documents are distributed evenly between distributed cache partitions.

Usergrid - The BaaS Framework you run


Usergrid is an open-source Backend-as-a-Service (“BaaS” or “mBaaS”) composed of an integrated distributed NoSQL database, application layer and client tier with SDKs for developers looking to rapidly build web and/or mobile applications. It provides elementary services (user registration & management, data storage, file storage, queues) and retrieval features (full text search, geolocation search, joins) to power common app features.
