MonetDB is a high-performance applications in data mining, OLAP, GIS, XML Query, text and multimedia retrieval. MonetDB often achieves a significant speed improvement for SQL and XQuery over other open-source systems.

MonetDB achieves its goal by innovations at all layers of a DBMS, e.g. a storage model based on vertical fragmentation, a modern CPU-tuned query execution architecture, automatic and self-tuning indexes, run-time query optimization, and a modular software architecture.

Its major features include:

  • High-performance database management system
  • Multi-model system
  • Column-store based database kernel
  • Broad spectrum database system
  • Extendable database system
  • Database back-end is multi-threaded and guards a single physical database instance
  • Operations are cache- and memory-aware with supreme performance
  • Index selection, creation and maintenance is automatic
  • Connectivity is provided through TCP/IP sockets and SSH on many platforms
  • Could be Embedded
  • Programming interfaces available in all major languages

HBase - Hadoop database

HBase provides support to handle BigTable - billions of rows X millions of columns. It is a scalable, distributed, versioned, column-oriented store modeled after Google's Bigtable and runs on top of HDFS (Hadoop Distributed Filesystem). It features compression, in-memory operation per-column. Data could be replicated between the nodes. HBase is used in Facebook and Twitter.

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.

Infobright combines a columnar database with our Knowledge Grid architecture to deliver a self-managing, self-tuning database optimized for analytics. Infobright eliminates the need to create indexes, partition data, or do any manual tuning to achieve fast response for queries and reports.

RedBeanPHP - Easiest ORM layer for php

RedBeanPHP is an open source ORM (object relational mapping) tool for PHP. It focuses on simplicity and ease of use. What makes RedBean unique is that it creates your database schema on-the-fly. It scans your data and adjusts the column types to fit your object properties. If your models are stabilized you can freeze the database. This way RedBean is easy to develop with but is also extremely fast on production servers.
