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.

HBase

Hbase is well suited for large organizations with millions of operations performing on tables, real-time lookup of records in a table, range queries, random reads and writes and online analytics operations.Hbase cannot be replaced for traditional databases as it cannot support all the features, CPU and memory intensive. Observed increased latency when using with MapReduce job joins.

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.

  • Faster lookup of records using the row keys. It helped to fetch thousands of records in a much faster way using the row keys
  • As it is a columnar data store, helped us to improve the query performance and aggregations
  • Sharding helps us to optimize the data storage and retrieval. HBase provides automatic or manually sharding of tables.
  • Dynamic addition of columns and column family helped us to modify the schema with ease.

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..

  • Not for small data

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.

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.

HBase is what you should use if you want a production ready scalable, JSON friendly, key-value, NoSQL, enterprise storage option. It excels over MongoDB due to integration with the extensive Hadoop stack and all the tools, frameworks and benefits there. HBase has superior workloads, a SQL interface and is an easy option for anyone already using Hadoop or real Big Data.HBase scales to massive levels without backup, indexing or cost issues.

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.

  • Easy to understand the underlying data model and find engineers to leverage and operate it.
  • Easy to look up related issues and corresponding solutions to handle those issues.
