Tarantool is an in-memory database and application server.
Key features of the application server:
- 100% compatible drop-in replacement for Lua 5.1, based on LuaJIT 2.1. Simply use #!/usr/bin/tarantool instead of #!/usr/bin/lua in your script.
- full support for Lua modules and a rich set of own modules, including cooperative multitasking, non-blocking I/O, access to external databases, etc
Key features of the database:
- MsgPack data format and MsgPack based client-server protocol
- two data engines: 100% in-memory with optional persistence and a 2-level disk-based B-tree, to use with large data sets
- multiple index types: HASH, TREE, RTREE, BITSET
- asynchronous master-master replication
- authentication and access control
- the database is just a C extension to the app server and can be turned off
Supported platforms are Linux/x86 and FreeBSD/x86, Mac OS X.
Tarantool is ideal for data-enriched components of scalable Web architecture: queue servers, caches, stateful Web applications.
