NameApache Druid  Xexclude from comparisonGeode  Xexclude from comparisonRedis  Xexclude from comparison
DescriptionOpen-source analytics data store designed for sub-second OLAP queries on high dimensionality and high cardinality dataGeode is a distributed data container, pooling memory, CPU, network resources, and optionally local disk across multiple processesPopular in-memory data platform used as a cache, message broker, and database that can be deployed on-premises, across clouds, and hybrid environments infoRedis focuses on performance so most of its design decisions prioritize high performance and very low latencies.
