Created as commercial project in 2013, FoundationDB has been acquired by Apple in March 2015 and was withdrawn from the market. As a consequence, the product was removed from the DB-Engines ranking. In April 2018, Apple open-sourced FoundationDB and it therefore reappears in the ranking.
DescriptionNative multi-model DBMS for graph, document, key/value and search. All in one engine and accessible with one query language.Ordered key-value store. Core features are complimented by layers.Popular 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.Cassandra and DynamoDB compatible wide column storeObject-relational database and reports server
