NameEhcache  Xexclude from comparisonMariaDB  Xexclude from comparisonRedis  Xexclude from comparison
DescriptionA widely adopted Java cache with tiered storage optionsMySQL application compatible open source RDBMS, enhanced with high availability, security, interoperability and performance capabilities. MariaDB ColumnStore provides a column-oriented storage engine and MariaDB Xpand supports distributed SQL.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.
