MariaDB vs RocksDB: What are the differences?
MariaDB: An enhanced, drop-in replacement for MySQL. Started by core members of the original MySQL team, MariaDB actively works with outside developers to deliver the most featureful, stable, and sanely licensed open SQL server in the industry. MariaDB is designed as a drop-in replacement of MySQL(R) with more features, new storage engines, fewer bugs, and better performance; RocksDB: Embeddable persistent key-value store for fast storage, developed and maintained by Facebook Database Engineering Team. RocksDB is an embeddable persistent key-value store for fast storage. RocksDB can also be the foundation for a client-server database but our current focus is on embedded workloads. RocksDB builds on LevelDB to be scalable to run on servers with many CPU cores, to efficiently use fast storage, to support IO-bound, in-memory and write-once workloads, and to be flexible to allow for innovation.
MariaDB and RocksDB can be categorized as "Databases" tools.
Some of the features offered by MariaDB are:
- Insert Delayed
On the other hand, RocksDB provides the following key features:
- Designed for application servers wanting to store up to a few terabytes of data on locally attached Flash drives or in RAM
- Optimized for storing small to medium size key-values on fast storage -- flash devices or in-memory
- Scales linearly with number of CPUs so that it works well on ARM processors
"Drop-in mysql replacement" is the primary reason why developers consider MariaDB over the competitors, whereas "Very fast" was stated as the key factor in picking RocksDB.
MariaDB and RocksDB are both open source tools. RocksDB with 14.3K GitHub stars and 3.12K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than MariaDB with 2.82K GitHub stars and 864 GitHub forks.
