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

instead of
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: * ANSI SQL, including views, joins, referential and check constraints * MsgPack data format and MsgPack based client-server protocol * two data engines: 100% in-memory with optional persistence and an own implementation of LSM-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 application server and can be turned off

Supported platforms are Linux/x86, FreeBSD/x86 and OpenBSD/x86, Mac OS X.

Tarantool is ideal for data-enriched components of scalable Web architecture: queue servers, caches, stateful Web applications.
