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

  •        0

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.

Berkeley DB - Embeddable Databases to Meet Your Needs

Oracle Berkeley DB provides the best open source embeddable databases allowing developers the choice of SQL, Key/Value, XML/XQuery or Java Object storage for their data model. At its core is a fast, scalable, transactional database engine with proven reliability and availability. Berkeley DB comes three versions: Berkeley DB, Berkeley DB Java Edition, and Berkeley DB XML.

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.

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.

HyperGraphDB - Database for Storing Strongly-Typed Hypergraphs

HyperGraphDB is a general purpose, open-source data storage mechanism based on a powerful knowledge management formalism known as directed hypergraphs. While a persistent memory model designed mostly for Knowledge management, Artificial Intelligence and Semantic web projects, it can also be used as an embedded object-oriented database for Java projects of all sizes. It could also be used as graph database or as (non-SQL) relational database.

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.


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.

Java SE - Creator of Java

Java Standard Edition provides Java development kit and Runtime to develop and deploy Java programs. Developed by Sun and take over by Oracle. It has support for different environments like Desktop, Embedded, Web, Realtime etc.

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.

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.

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.
