BigchainDB - The Scalable Blockchain Database

  •        287

BigchainDB allows developers and enterprise to deploy blockchain proof-of-concepts, platforms and applications with a scalable blockchain database, supporting a wide range of industries and use cases. It is a decentralization ecosystem: a decentralized database, at scale. It can perform 1 million writes per second throughput, store petabytes of data, and sub-second latency.

The BigchainDB design starts with a distributed database (DB), and through a set of innovations adds blockchain characteristics: decentralized control, immutability, and creation & movement of digital assets. BigchainDB inherits characteristics of modern distributed databases: linear scaling in throughput and capacity with the number of nodes, a full-featured NoSQL query language, efficient querying, and permissioning. Being built on an existing distributed DB, it also inherits enterprise-hardened code for most of its codebase.

catena - Catena is a distributed database based on a blockchain, accessible using SQL.


Catena is a distributed database based on a blockchain, accessible using SQL. Catena timestamps database transactions (SQL) in a decentralized way between nodes that do not or cannot trust each other, while enforcing modification permissions ('grants') that were agreed upon earlier. A Catena blockchain contains SQL transactions that, when executed in order, lead to the agreed-upon state of the database. The transactions are automatically replicated to, validated by, and replayed on participating clients. A Catena database can be connected to by client applications using the PostgreSQL wire protocol (pq).

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.

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.

Crate - The fast, scalable, easy to use SQL database with native full text search


Crate is an open source, highly scalable, shared-nothing distributed SQL database. Crate offers the scalability and performance of a modern No-SQL database with the power of Standard SQL. Crate’s distributed SQL query engine lets you use the same syntax that already exists in your applications or integrations, and have queries seamlessly executed across the crate cluster, including any aggregations, if needed.

Titan - Scalable Graph Database


Titan is a scalable graph database optimized for storing and querying graphs containing hundreds of billions of vertices and edges distributed across a multi-machine cluster. Titan is a transactional database that can support thousands of concurrent users executing complex graph traversals. It is a native Blueprints enabled graph database and as such, it supports the full TinkerPop stack of technologies.


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.

OpenTSDB - A scalable, distributed Time Series Database.


OpenTSDB is a distributed, scalable Time Series Database (TSDB) written on top of HBase. OpenTSDB was written to address a common need: store, index and serve metrics collected from computer systems (network gear, operating systems, applications) at a large scale, and make this data easily accessible and graphable.

Pinot - A realtime distributed OLAP datastore


Pinot is a realtime distributed OLAP datastore, which is used at LinkedIn to deliver scalable real time analytics with low latency. It can ingest data from offline data sources (such as Hadoop and flat files) as well as online sources (such as Kafka). Pinot is designed to scale horizontally, so that it can scale to larger data sets and higher query rates as needed.

TiDB - Distributed NewSQL database compatible with MySQL protocol


TiDB is a distributed SQL database. Inspired by the design of Google F1 and Google Spanner, TiDB supports the best features of both traditional RDBMS and NoSQL. It is horizontally scalable, grow TiDB as your business grows. You can increase the capacity simply by adding more machines.

Kairosdb - Fast distributed scalable time series database written on top of Cassandra


KairosDB is a fast distributed scalable time series database written on top of Cassandra. Data can be pushed in KairosDB via multiple protocols : Telnet, Rest, Graphite. KairosDB stores time series in Cassandra, the popular and performant NoSQL datastore. It supports aggregators which can perform an operation on data points and down samples. Standard functions like min, max, sum, count, mean etc.

VoltDB - Fast Scalable SQL DBMS with ACID


VoltDB was specifically designed for contemporary software applications that are pushed beyond their limits by high volume data sources. VoltDB provides the ability to capture, store and process incoming data at millions of read/write operations per second. And VoltDB’s relational model opens that data to be analyzed in real-time, using familiar Business Intelligence tools, to identify data patterns and trends, spot anomalies, or perform tracking and alerting.

ActorDB - Distributed SQL database with linear scalability


ActorDB is ideal as a server side database for apps. Think of running a large mail service, dropbox, evernote, etc. They all require server side storage for user data, but the vast majority of queries is within a specific user. With many users, the server side database can get very large. Using ActorDB you can keep a full relational database for every user and not be forced into painful scaling strategies that require you to throw away everything that makes relational databases good.

rqlite - The lightweight, distributed relational database built on SQLite.


rqlite is a distributed relational database, which uses SQLite as its storage engine. rqlite uses Raft to achieve consensus across all the instances of the SQLite databases, ensuring that every change made to the system is made to a quorum of SQLite databases, or none at all. It also gracefully handles leader elections, and tolerates failures of machines, including the leader. rqlite is available for Linux, OSX, and Microsoft Windows.rqlite gives you the functionality of a rock solid, fault-tolerant, replicated relational database, but with very easy installation, deployment, and operation. With it you've got a lightweight and reliable distributed relational data store. Think etcd or Consul, but with relational data modelling also available.
