Aerospike has open sourced its revolutionary in-memory NoSQL database and key-value store technology. Because Aerospike is flash-optimized with a hybrid RAM/SSD storage architecture, you can get 10x better performance while using 10x fewer servers. The Aerospike Community Edition is free and new builds are periodically made available.
The Aerospike client code is available in GitHub under the Apache 2 license. This license gives you complete flexibility to use and modify the code with no restrictions whatsoever. The Aerospike server code is available in GitHub under the Free Software Foundation’s GNU AGPL v3.0 (AGPL) to protect the long-term interests of the community. This license lets you use the code freely, but requires modifications to the server code to be contributed back to the community.
The Aerospike Enterprise Edition comes with access to tested and certified binaries, hot patches, deployment planning, performance health checks and tune-ups to ensure non-stop operations. Enterprise customers can always take advantage of Community Support, but they also get 24x7x365 production support and access to Aerospike experts via the Customer Support Portal . In addition, the Enterprise Edition comes with Aerospike Cross Data Center Replication™ (XDR, which manages replication asynchronously across clusters in different data centers.
