|Editorial information provided by DB-Engines|
|Name||Redis Xexclude from comparison||Tarantool Xexclude from comparison|
|Description||Popular in-memory data platform used as a cache, message broker, and database that can be deployed on-premises, across clouds, and hybrid environments Redis focuses on performance so most of its design decisions prioritize high performance and very low latencies.||In-memory computing platform with a flexible data schema for efficiently building high-performance applications|
|Primary database model||Key-value store Multiple data types and a rich set of operations, as well as configurable data expiration, eviction and persistence||Document store|
|Secondary database models||Document store with RedisJSON|
Graph DBMS with RedisGraph
Search engine with RediSearch
Time Series DBMS with RedisTimeSeries
|Spatial DBMS with Tarantool/GIS extension|
