If the lack of commits over the past year isn't a clue, this is your warning that Dynomite is a dead project and is no longer being maintained. At some point in the future my employer may allow me to push out the improvements that I've made since I was barred from pushing code publicly. But I would not count on it, and I would not recommend you use Dynomite for anything other than a functional design document on how to build a Dynamo clone.

If you need an erlang Dynamo clone for production use I would recommend Riak.

If you need something with a bigtable style data model then I recommend Cassandra.


This is dynomite. It is a clone of the amazon dynamo key value store written in Erlang.
