Database on top of SQLite

Relational databaseOpen Source
Our review

What we like

Makes it easy to deploy a replicated cluster of SQLite backed database nodes. Writes distributed to a quorum or they fail. Provides HTTP API, CLI, and client libraries for Go, Python, Node, Java. Runs in-memory, but backed by on-disk Raft logs to avoid data loss risk. Supports full-text search, JSON documents, encryption, hot backups.

What we don't like

You must use the HTTP API (directly or via client libraries) to get all the functionality. Writes scale vertically - only reads scale horizontally. 2GB database size limit (switch to on-disk to avoid this, but with a write-performance tradeoff).
