Headquartered in San Francisco, California, privately-held Clustrix offers a closed-source, low-administration, shared-nothing, distributed RDBMS, ClustrixDB, with replication and autoscaling. It is available as on-premises software and in the cloud.
ClustrixDB is a scale-out RDBMS compatible with MySQL, making it an attractive option if existing MySQL-backed applications are hitting scalability challenges. ClustrixDB is frequently used in e-commerce scenarios where horizontal scaling is important.
The DBMS offers ACID-compliant transactions across all nodes in the cluster. ClustrixDB scored well for traditional transactional use cases, placing roughly in the middle of the pack. The company recently added JSON and XML support, making it suitable for write-intensive lightweight events and observations as well as distributed variable data. ClustrixDB scored below average for HTAP capabilities. While it has ACID capabilities and scored well for high-speed ingestion and processing, it does not currently offer HTAP programming functionality beyond its streaming capabilities. Clustrix has in-memory capabilities on its roadmap for 8.0, but the nature of those capabilities is currently unknown.
