Hyperdex - A Searchable Distributed Key-Value Store

HyperDex is a distributed, searchable key-value store. HyperDex provides a unique search primitive which enables searches over stored values. By design, HyperDex retains the performance of traditional key-value stores while enabling support for the search operation. It is fast, scalable, Consistent, Fault tolerant.

Apache Accumulo - Key Value Store based on Google BigTable

The Apache Accumulo sorted, distributed key/value store is a robust, scalable, high performance data storage and retrieval system. Apache Accumulo is based on Google's BigTable design and is built on top of Apache Hadoop, Zookeeper, and Thrift. Apache Accumulo features a few novel improvements on the BigTable design in the form of cell-based access control and a server-side programming mechanism that can modify key/value pairs at various points in the data management process.

Infinispan - Key value NOSQL data store and data grid

Infinispan is an extremely scalable, highly available key/value NoSQL datastore and distributed data grid platform. The purpose of Infinispan is to expose a data structure that is highly concurrent, designed ground-up to make the most of modern multi-processor/multi-core architectures while at the same time providing distributed cache capabilities. Infinispan offers enterprise features such as efficient eviction algorithms to control memory usage as well as JTA compatibility.

Project-voldemort - A distributed database, Clone of Amazon's Dynamo

Voldemort is a distributed key-value storage system. Data is automatically replicated over multiple servers. Data is automatically partitioned so each server contains only a subset of the total data. Server failure is handled transparently. It is used at LinkedIn for certain high-scalability storage problems where simple functional partitioning is not sufficient.

BangDB - NoSQL for Real Time Performance

Bangdb is pure vanilla key value nosql data store. The goal of bangdb is to be fast, reliable, robust, scalable and easy to use data store for various data management services required by applications. Bangdb comes in flavors like Embedded In memory, Network, Distributed data grid/ Elastic Cache. The bangdb is highly concurrent and runs parallel operations as much as possible.

havalo - Non Distributed NoSQL Key Value Store

A zero configuration, non-distributed NoSQL key-value store that runs in any Servlet 3.0 compatible container. With Havalo, simply drop havalo.war into your favorite Servlet 3.0 compatible container and with almost no configuration you'll have access to a fast and lightweight K,V store backed by any local mount point for persistent storage.


Ehcache is an open source, standards-based cache used to boost performance, offload the database and simplify scalability. Ehcache is robust, proven and full-featured and this has made it the most widely-used Java-based cache.

Chronicle Map - High performance, off-heap, key-value, in memory, persisted data store

Chronicle Map is a high performance, off-heap, key-value, in memory, persisted data store. It works like a standard java map yet it automatically distributes data between processes, these processes can be both on the same server or across your network. In other words its a low latency, huge data key value store, which can store terabytes of data locally to your process.

etcd - Distributed reliable key-value store for the most critical data of a distributed system

etcd is a distributed, consistent key-value store for shared configuration and service discovery. It is simple, secure, fast and reliable. it uses the Raft consensus algorithm to manage a highly-available replicated log.

RocksDB - A persistent key-value store for fast storage environments

RocksDB is an embeddable persistent key-value store for fast storage. 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. It is especially suited for storing data on flash drives. It has multi-threaded compactions, making it specially suitable for storing multiple terabytes of data in a single database.

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.

Memcached - distributed object caching system

Memcached is high-performance, distributed memory object caching system, generic in nature, but intended for use in speeding up dynamic web applications by alleviating database load. Memcached is an in-memory key-value store for small chunks of arbitrary data (strings, objects) from results of database calls, API calls, or page rendering.

Cassandra - Scalable Distributed Database

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.

Dynomite - Making Non-Distributed Databases, Distributed

Dynomite, inspired by Dynamo whitepaper, is a thin, distributed dynamo layer for different storages and protocols. Dynomite is a sharding and replication layer. Dynomite can make existing non distributed datastores, such as Redis or Memcached, into a fully distributed & multi-datacenter replicating datastore.
