DescriptionHigh-performance graph database supporting Semantic Web (RDF/SPARQL) and Graph Database (tinkerpop3, blueprints, vertex-centric) APIs with scale-out and High Availability.A distributed Time Series DBMS with a focus on scalability, fault tolerance and operational simplicityA highly scalable full ACID SQL database with fast NoSQL data ingestion and GIS capabilitiesOne of the most popular document stores available both as a fully managed cloud service and for deployment on self-managed infrastructurePopular 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.
