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

If you're looking to store millions of data records for millions of users, where each user only accesses a couple of documents (auth, user profiles, private data store), you can't beat Couchbase for performance or scale.If you want to store tons of data records with varying schemas or totally unstructured data, Couchbase is also a great fit. Their N1QL engine is pretty amazing and pretty fast, but don't expect SQL level performance.If you're building a simple application with traditional relational data and on a tight budget, I'd say stick with something like Postgres.

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.

  • Analytics (in the beta version) - being able to run broad queries and derive insights without affecting the operational store (ie. production systems)
  • Performance - the memory caching is a big boost from the other nosql dbs we evaluated
  • XDCR - super easy for cross region replication

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..

  • Consolidate the number of logs and remove generic log messages for quick troubleshooting
  • Better error handling capabilities using error# to identify and address critical errors

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.

I'm a huge fan of the query speed, expecially with N1QL. The documentation does a good job of walking me through each operation, as I am a new developer in the company

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.

I really enjoy the N1QL feature that Mongo lacks. Makes retrieving the correct data much faster with less work on my part.

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.
