BlackRay is a relational database system designed to offer performance features commonly associated with search engines. It offers SQL support and sophisticated operational and management features. Load-balancing and operational stability by means of N+1 redundance are included. BlackRay is called a "Data Engine" since it combines traditional, relational database features and SQL with the power and flexibility of search engines. It is a true hybrid, offering transaction support, data-versioned snapshots, and sophisticated function-based indices. Wildcards, phonetic, and fuzzy logic searches are supported, as well. BlackRay supports a subset of the SQL92 standard and provides JDBC/ODBC/native driver options via the PostgreSQL protocol, in addition to an API based query option. The project is released under the GPLv2, with some drivers available under BSD-style licenses. Commercial support contracts are available as well.
MckoiDDB is a distributed database system for applications that need to support low latency random access (read and write) queries on datasets that span a cluster of machines in a network. The software provides the system for managing the storage of data over the network cluster and a client API for accessing and querying the data. The MckoiDDB system can scale up or down as resources are added or removed in the network, and is flexible in how the logical data models of an application are designed and implemented. MckoiDDB can be installed on high-speed private networks and over instances in Cloud service providers.
