BuntDB vs Redis: What are the differences?

Developers describe BuntDB as "A fast, embeddable, in-memory key/value database for Go with custom indexing and geospatial support". BuntDB is a low-level, in-memory, key/value store in pure Go. It persists to disk, is ACID compliant, and uses locking for multiple readers and a single writer. It supports custom indexes and geospatial data. It's ideal for projects that need a dependable database and favor speed over data size. On the other hand, Redis is detailed as "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.

BuntDB and Redis belong to "In-Memory Databases" category of the tech stack.

BuntDB and Redis are both open source tools. It seems that Redis with 37.1K GitHub stars and 14.3K forks on GitHub has more adoption than BuntDB with 2.4K GitHub stars and 172 GitHub forks.

        What are some alternatives to BuntDB and Redis?
        Badger
        Domain management you'll enjoy. Domains effectively drive the entire internet, shouldn't they be easier to manage? We thought so, and thus, Badger was born! You shouldn't have to auction off your house and sacrifice your first born to transfer domains, you should be able to press a button that says "Transfer Domain" and be done with it. That is our philosophy, and we think you will appreciate it. Stop letting domain registrars badger you, and start using... Badger!
        LevelDB
        It is a fast key-value storage library written at Google that provides an ordered mapping from string keys to string values. It has been ported to a variety of Unix-based systems, macOS, Windows, and Android.
        Hazelcast
        With its various distributed data structures, distributed caching capabilities, elastic nature, memcache support, integration with Spring and Hibernate and more importantly with so many happy users, Hazelcast is feature-rich, enterprise-ready and developer-friendly in-memory data grid solution.
        Aerospike
        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.
        SAP HANA
        It is an application that uses in-memory database technology that allows the processing of massive amounts of real-time data in a short time. The in-memory computing engine allows it to process data stored in RAM as opposed to reading it from a disk.
