Drizzle aims to be different from MySQL, stripping out “unnecessary” features loved by enterprise and OEMs in the name of greater speed and simplicity and for reduced management overhead.
Drizzle has no stored procedures, triggers, or views […]
Aiming to provide a database for the cloud with support for massive concurrency optimized for increased performance, Drizzle team started by removing “non-essential” code and features. Michael Stonebraker’s VoltDB is focusing on a different set of optimizations for achieving performance — removing logging, locking, latching, buffer management.
Anyway, it is not about who’s approach is better, but which scenarios are covered by using a simplified MySQL compatible database or by an in-memory with predefined queries database.
