ActorDB - Distributed SQL database with linear scalability

  •        299

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.
ActorDB is

  • A distributed relational SQL database.
  • Consistent (not eventually consistent).
  • Distributed.
  • Redundant.
  • Massively concurrent.
  • No single point of failure.
  • ACID.
  • Connectable over MySQL protocol and Thrift.
  • Replicated safely using the Raft distributed consensus algorithm.

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

  •    Swift

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).

orbit-db - Peer-to-Peer Databases for the Decentralized Web

  •    Javascript

OrbitDB is a serverless, distributed, peer-to-peer database. OrbitDB uses IPFS as its data storage and IPFS Pubsub to automatically sync databases with peers. It's an eventually consistent database that uses CRDTs for conflict-free database merges making OrbitDB an excellent choice for decentralized apps (dApps), blockchain applications and offline-first web applications. All databases are implemented on top of ipfs-log, an immutable, operation-based conflict-free replicated data structure (CRDT) for distributed systems. If none of the OrbitDB database types match your needs and/or you need case-specific functionality, you can easily implement and use a custom database store of your own.
