Membase: All content tagged as Membase in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
Lorenzo Alberton with an overview of the NoSQL landscape:
NoSQL databases get a lot of press coverage, but there seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding them, as in which situations they work better than a Relational Database, and how to choose one over another. This talk will give an overview of the NoSQL landscape and a classification for the different architectural categories, clarifying the base concepts and the terminology, and will provide a comparison of the features, the strengths and the drawbacks of the most popular projects (CouchDB, MongoDB, Riak, Redis, Membase, Neo4j, Cassandra, HBase, Hypertable).
RethinkDB has just launched its 1.0 release to the public, and it’s offering a product geared toward NoSQL installations — and it will work on SSDs, traditional drives, and cloud-based services like AWS. The startup has also moved away from MySQL and now fully supports Memcached.
But RethinkDB is not the first product providing a Memcached compatible (disk) persistent storage engine. One year ago Membase was launched promising not only a persistent Memcached compatible solution, but also elastic scalability.
RethinkDB has also published a performance report (PDF) demonstrating RethinkDB speed compared to Membase and MySQL. But if I’m reading those numbers correctly, while RethinkDB leads the majority of query-per-second (QPS) benchmarks, MySQL is consistently showing better latency numbers (which is kind of weird). For a strong durability scenario, the benchmark shows MySQL delivering 2x QPS compared to RethinkDB.
Another interesting aspect of the RethinkDB 1.0 release is the licensing model —which I don’t fully get:
RethinkDB Basic is currently identical in feature-set to RethinkDB Premium and Enterprise. However, the paid versions of RethinkDB include phone and email support, access to all future updates, and volume licensing options.
Or spelled out on the TechCrunch post :
Akhmechet says that the free version will get security updates, but that it won’t necessarily receive new features in the future, whereas the premium version will.
