Feature Guide Overview
These feature guides present details on the following topics:
Aerospike is a row-oriented database, where every record (equivalent to a row in a relational database) is uniquely identified by a key. The record's key and its other metadata live in the primary index. The record's data lives in the pre-defined storage device of the namespace it occupies. For a more detailed description read the Data Model section of the architecture overview. Aerospike supports key-value store and document store models.
Aerospike bins can each hold a distinct scalar or collection data type.
Aerospike allows value-based queries using secondary indexes, where string and integer bin values are indexed and searched using equality (string or numeric) or range (numeric) filters.
User-Defined Functions (UDFs) extend the functionality and performance capabilities of the Aerospike Database engine.
In Aerospike, the aggregations framework allows fast, flexible query operations. Similar to MapReduce systems, aggregation emits results in a highly parallel fashion.
Aerospike supports storage, indexing and querying of Geospatial data expressed as GeoJSON.
