Aerospike vs Redis: 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; Redis: An in-memory database that persists on disk. Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.
Aerospike and Redis belong to "In-Memory Databases" category of the tech stack.
"Ram and/or ssd persistence " is the primary reason why developers consider Aerospike over the competitors, whereas "Performance" was stated as the key factor in picking Redis.
Aerospike and Redis are both open source tools. It seems that Redis with 37.4K GitHub stars and 14.4K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Aerospike with 295 GitHub stars and 54 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Redis has a broader approval, being mentioned in 3261 company stacks & 1780 developers stacks; compared to Aerospike, which is listed in 30 company stacks and 9 developer stacks.
