DescriptionBigchainDB is scalable blockchain database offering decentralization, immutability and native assetsA native JSON - document store inspired by Lotus Notes, scalable from globally distributed server-clusters down to mobile phones.A multi-model, scalable, distributed NoSQL database, designed to provide highly reliable, flexible, and available data management across a configurable set of storage nodesIndustry standard data logging and graphing tool for time series data. RRD is an acronym for round-robin database. infoThe data is stored in a circular buffer, thus the system storage footprint remains constant over time.
