Aerospike Database

Compared to Redis and memcacheD, high availibity is best from Aerospike. Load balancing is also well done through Aerospike. If you're doing K/V lookups data exceeds more than 1MB, then Aerospike definitely fits the bill. However, it is not best as a document store. It is really atrocious in that nature. If anything look @ Mongo or something else then.

Couchbase Data Platform

It performs really well for the high-performance content management with light weight analytics. However, it is not recommended for the scenarios where the highest level of database security is required and/or real time analytics is enforced.

Pros

  • Scales really quickly and easily. Can deploy a new cluster or add to a cluster fairly quick.
  • MGMT UI is easy to use. Utilizing cli, makes it easy to "autoscale" for us.
  • The sharding removes any need to overlook to make sure if balanced correctly.
  • HA is dead simple, that almost little to no need figure out how to do it.

Cons

  • Load balancing per network segments.
  • Reduction in price.
  • Cross datacenter replication usage isn't so straightforward. Sometimes cross dc replication can have issues of bad data..

  • Analytics need to have time-series features to compete with OLAP solutions

If money isn't an issue, and you're not on the cloud, then I'd go with Aerospike. If you're the cloud ie, aws or azure, then i'd stick with dynamoDB or Cosmos then. Aerospike is definitely not something you want to put into the cloud. It doesn't work well w/ cross regions. If cross DC, you'll have to write some stuff for data integrity checks.

Compare to other nonSQL, we choose Couchbase due to its overall performance and the ways it meets our business needs

Alternatives Considered

Compared to the above for K/V lookups and writes, it is faster. However, less than 1 MB, i'd use Redis, if you're willing to write package for HA in Redis. However HA between Redis and aerospike, aerospike is top notch. K/V lookups were 20-30% faster than Redis, 50% faster than Mongo, and 45% faster than Cassandra. But again, aerospike is really expensive.

Being able to add a new node on the fly is very handy and allows for growth which is just a few clicks away. The addition of new nodes to the cluster is seamless and quick and the ability to do this from a single UI makes for easy Administration of the product.

Return on Investment

  • Less mgmt headaches, prompting time to focus on other issues.
  • HA, required little handholding. And minimization of downtime.
  • Cross region replication is not great, which sometimes requires data integrity checks on your end.

  • Really helps when clients want a more stand alone system or a more enterprise solution because it allows flexibility.
  • Systems already using JSON objects to move data around can really benefit from the ease of sharing data between the front end and back end of systems.
