Apache Ignite vs LokiJS: What are the differences?

Developers describe Apache Ignite as "An open-source distributed database, caching and processing platform *". It is a memory-centric distributed database, caching, and processing platform for transactional, analytical, and streaming workloads delivering in-memory speeds at petabyte scale. On the other hand, *LokiJS** is detailed as "In-memory JavaScript Datastore with Persistence". LokiJS is a document oriented database written in javascript, published under MIT License. Its purpose is to store javascript objects as documents in a nosql fashion and retrieve them with a similar mechanism. Runs in node (including cordova/phonegap and node-webkit), nativescript and the browser.

Apache Ignite and LokiJS can be primarily classified as "In-Memory Databases" tools.

Apache Ignite and LokiJS are both open source tools. It seems that LokiJS with 5K GitHub stars and 388 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Apache Ignite with 2.67K GitHub stars and 1.3K GitHub forks.

MongoDB
MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
Apache Spark
Spark is a fast and general processing engine compatible with Hadoop data. It can run in Hadoop clusters through YARN or Spark's standalone mode, and it can process data in HDFS, HBase, Cassandra, Hive, and any Hadoop InputFormat. It is designed to perform both batch processing (similar to MapReduce) and new workloads like streaming, interactive queries, and machine learning.
