Chronicle Map - High performance, off-heap, key-value, in memory, persisted data store

Chronicle Map is a high performance, off-heap, key-value, in memory, persisted data store. It works like a standard java map yet it automatically distributes data between processes, these processes can be both on the same server or across your network. In other words its a low latency, huge data key value store, which can store terabytes of data locally to your process.

Apache Ignite - High performance in-memory data grid

Apache Ignite In-Memory Data Fabric is a high-performance, integrated and distributed in-memory platform for computing and transacting on large-scale data sets in real-time, orders of magnitude faster than possible with traditional disk-based or flash technologies.

Cacheonix - Open Source Java Cache

Cacheonix is an Open Source Java cache that allows developers to scale applications horizontally by providing a highly concurrent local cache and a strictly consistent distributed cache. It supports Distributed cache, Web application cache, Distributed lock, Second level (L2) cache.

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.

Hyperdex - A Searchable Distributed Key-Value Store

HyperDex is a distributed, searchable key-value store. HyperDex provides a unique search primitive which enables searches over stored values. By design, HyperDex retains the performance of traditional key-value stores while enabling support for the search operation. It is fast, scalable, Consistent, Fault tolerant.

keyv - Simple key-value storage with support for multiple backends

Keyv provides a consistent interface for key-value storage across multiple backends via storage adapters. It supports TTL based expiry, making it suitable as a cache or a persistent key-value store.Install Keyv.

bigcache - Efficient cache for gigabytes of data written in Go.

Fast, concurrent, evicting in-memory cache written to keep big number of entries without impact on performance. BigCache keeps entries on heap but omits GC for them. To achieve that operations on bytes arrays take place, therefore entries (de)serialization in front of the cache will be needed in most use cases.

pickleDB - Key-value store using Python's simplejson module

pickleDB is a lightweight and simple key-value store. It is built upon Python's simplejson module and was inspired by redis.

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.

EGOCache - Fast Caching for Objective-C (iPhone & Mac Compatible)

EGOCache is a simple, thread-safe key value cache store for macOS, iOS, tvOS and watchOS. It has native support for NSString, UIImage, NSImage, and NSData, but can store anything that implements <NSCoding>. All cached items expire after the timeout, which by default, is one day.

Bolt - An embedded key/value database for Go.

Bolt is a pure Go key/value store inspired by Howard Chu's LMDB project. The goal of the project is to provide a simple, fast, and reliable database for projects that don't require a full database server such as Postgres or MySQL.

TomP2P - A P2P-based high performance key-value pair storage library

TomP2P is a P2P library and a distributed hash table (DHT) implementation which provides a decentralized key-value infrastructure for distributed applications. Each peer has a table that can be configured either to be disk-based or memory-based to store its values. TomP2P stores key-value pairs in a distributed manner. To find the peers to store the data in the distributed hash table, TomP2P uses an iterative routing to find the closest peers. Since TomP2P uses non-blocking communication, a future object is required to keep track of future results. This key concept is used for all the communication (iterative routing and DHT operations, such as storing a value on multiple peers) in TomP2P and it is also exposed in the API. Thus, an operation such as get or put will return immediately and the user can either block the operation to wait for the completion or add a listener that gets notified when the operation completes.

MapDB - Embedded Database Engine

MapDB is an embedded database engine. It provides Maps and other collections backed by disk or memory storage. It offers excellent performance comparable to java collections, but is not limited by GC overhead. It is also a full database engine with storage backends, transactions, cache algorithms, expiration and many other options. MapDB provides concurrent Maps, Sets and Queues backed by disk storage or off-heap memory.

scaffeine - Thin Scala wrapper for Caffeine

Caffeine is an awesome Java caching library. It has an impressive performance and a neat Java 8 API. However the API does not play very well with Scala. So this is the thinner wrapper we can came with to make Caffeine easy and idiomatic to use in Scala.

ForestDB - A Fast Key-Value Storage Engine Based on Hierarchical B+-Tree Trie

ForestDB is a key-value storage engine developed by Couchbase Caching and Storage Team, and its main index structure is built from Hierarchical B+-Tree based Trie, called HB+-Trie. ForestDB paper has been published in IEEE Transactions on Computers.
