membase - distributed key-value database

  •        0

Membase is an distributed, key-value database management system optimized for storing data behind interactive web applications. These applications must service many concurrent users, creating, storing, retrieving, aggregating, manipulating and presenting data in real-time. Supporting these requirements, membase processes data operations with quasi-deterministic low latency and high sustained throughput.

For those familiar with memcached, membase provides on-the-wire protocol compatibility, but adds disk persistence; hierarchical storage management; data replication; live cluster reconfiguration and rebalancing; and secure multi-tenancy with data partitioning.

Membase scales elastically, with linear cost. Servers can be added to, or removed from, a running cluster with no application downtime.

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.


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.

Redis - advanced key-value store

Redis is an advanced key-value store. It is similar to memcached but the dataset is not volatile, and values can be strings, exactly like in memcached, but also lists, sets, and ordered sets. All this data types can be manipulated with atomic operations to push/pop elements, add/remove elements, perform server side union, intersection, difference between sets, and so forth. Redis supports different kind of sorting abilities.

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.

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.

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.
