Specific characteristics

Speedb is an embedded key-value storage engine for versatile use cases. It was designed to be a drop-in replacement for RocksDB, continuously rebasing on RocksDB's latest versions and innovating with valuable features for improved application performance, better operational usability, and resource management. Speedb OSS is a community project, with a vibrant open-source community, that shares knowledge among RocksDB/Speedb developers and users on Discord: https://discord.com/invite/5fVUUtM2cG. 

Speedb Enterprise was designed to support mission-critical, heavy-write applications. By removing capacity, performance, and scale limitations, it supports petabyte scaling of datasets with billions of objects while maintaining high performance and low hardware requirements.

Competitive advantages
  • Speedb Open-source rebases on RocksDB's latest versions, with enhanced capabilities that improve performance stability, better operational usability, and enhanced resource management:

    - Sorted-hash memtable.

    - Dynamic delayed write mechanism.

    - Proactive Flushes.

    - Online configuration changes in real-time.

    - And much more.

    Speedb Enterprise upgrades the Speedb OSS with unique technology, support, and services to hyper-scale mission-critical applications:

    - New compaction method dramatically reducing write amplification for large-scale LSM.

    - Flow control redesign to eliminate spikes in user latency.

    - Eliminate the need for sharding by allowing you to grow unlimited on a single instance while maintaining low memory consumption.

    - Revolutionary indexing method.

Licensing and pricing models
