Aerospike vs Cassandra: What are the differences?
Aerospike: Flash-optimized in-memory open source NoSQL database. Aerospike is an open-source, modern database built from the ground up to push the limits of flash storage, processors and networks. It was designed to operate with predictable low latency at high throughput with uncompromising reliability – both high availability and ACID guarantees; Cassandra: A partitioned row store. Rows are organized into tables with a required primary key. Partitioning means that Cassandra can distribute your data across multiple machines in an application-transparent matter. Cassandra will automatically repartition as machines are added and removed from the cluster. Row store means that like relational databases, Cassandra organizes data by rows and columns. The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) is a close relative of SQL.
Aerospike belongs to "In-Memory Databases" category of the tech stack, while Cassandra can be primarily classified under "Databases".
"Ram and/or ssd persistence " is the primary reason why developers consider Aerospike over the competitors, whereas "Distributed" was stated as the key factor in picking Cassandra.
Aerospike and Cassandra are both open source tools. Cassandra with 5.27K GitHub stars and 2.35K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Aerospike with 295 GitHub stars and 54 GitHub forks.
Uber Technologies, Facebook, and Spotify are some of the popular companies that use Cassandra, whereas Aerospike is used by JustWatch, Flyclops LLC, and StreetHawk. Cassandra has a broader approval, being mentioned in 342 company stacks & 240 developers stacks; compared to Aerospike, which is listed in 30 company stacks and 9 developer stacks.
