Top 8 FoundationDB alternatives

Last updated: March 25, 2015
FoundationDB
FoundationDB is multi-model, meaning you can store many types data all in a single database. All data is safely stored, distributed, and replicated in the Key-Value Store component, and new functionality, like our SQL Layer, is layered on top of its simple API.
The best FoundationDB alternatives:


MongoDB


MongoDB is an open-source document database, and the leading NoSQL database. Written in C++, MongoDB features: Document-Oriented Storage, Full Index Support, Replication & High Availability, Auto-Sharding, Querying, Fast In-Place Updates, Map/Reduce and others.

Apache Cassandra


Apache Cassandra is an open source distributed database management system designed to handle large amounts of data across many commodity servers, providing high availability with no single point of failure. Cassandra offers robust support for clusters spanning multiple datacenters, with asynchronous masterless replication allowing low latency operations for all clients.

Redis


Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value cache and store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets, sorted sets, bitmaps and hyperloglogs.

Riak


Riak is an open source, distributed database. Riak is is designed to store data and serve requests predictably and quickly, even during peak times. Riak replicates and retrieves data intelligently, making it available for read and write operations even in failure conditions. Riak is fault-tolerant so you can lose access to nodes due to network partition or hardware failure and never lose data.

MySQL


MySQL is the world's most popular open source database. Whether you are a fast growing web property, technology ISV or large enterprise, MySQL can cost-effectively help you deliver high performance, scalable database applications.

PostgreSQL


PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system. It has more than 15 years of active development and a proven architecture that has earned it a strong reputation for reliability, data integrity, and correctness. It runs on all major operating systems
