ClustrixDB vs TiDB: What are the differences?
Developers describe ClustrixDB as "Clustered SQL database built for e-commerce". ClustrixDB is a scale-out SQL database built from the ground up with a distributed shared nothing architecture, automatic data redistribution (so you never need to shard), with built in fault tolerance, all accessible by a simple SQL interface and support for business critical MySQL features – replication, triggers, stored routines, etc. On the other hand, TiDB is detailed as "A distributed NewSQL database compatible with MySQL protocol". Inspired by the design of Google F1, TiDB supports the best features of both traditional RDBMS and NoSQL.
ClustrixDB and TiDB can be primarily classified as "Databases" tools.
Some of the features offered by ClustrixDB are:
- Is built from the ground up with a shared-nothing architecture. There is no MySQL code in ClustrixDB
- Is built to scale transactions while maintaning ACID
- Scales to add capacity by simply adding commodity servers to the cluster
On the other hand, TiDB provides the following key features:
- Horizontal scalability
- Asynchronous schema changes
- Consistent distributed transactions
