Overview of Client Libraries

Aerospike offers a number of client Libraries.

Refer to Client Feature Matrix for feature parity in each client.

High Performing Clients Supported by Aerospike

These clients are highly recommended for main application development as they offer the highest performance and support the latest features of the Aerospike database.

Java

Aerospike’s Java client enables you to build applications in Java that store and retrieve data from an Aerospike cluster. It contains both synchronous and asynchronous calls to the database.

C#

Aerospike’s C# Client enables you to build applications using C# language in order to store and retrieve data from an Aerospike cluster.

C

Aerospike’s C client allows you to build applications in C to store and retrieve data from an Aerospike cluster. The C client is a smart client which periodically pings nodes for the current state of the cluster and manages interactions with the Aerospike cluster.

Go

The Go client enables you to build applications in Go that store and retrieve data from an Aerospike cluster.

Python

The Python client enables you to build an application in Python with an Aerospike cluster as its database. This client fully supports all features of the Aerospike database.

REST

The REST client enables you to communicate with an Aerospike cluster via RESTful requests.

Other Clients Supported by Aerospike

These clients may lag the latest features of the Aerospike database, and are not as high performing as the primary usage clients.

Node.js

The Node.js client allows you to build applications in Node.js that store and retrieve data from an Aerospike cluster.

Ruby

The Ruby client enables you to build applications in Ruby that store and retrieve data from an Aerospike cluster.

Community-Supported Clients

These clients are community-supported, with Aerospike's guidance.

Rust

The Rust client enables you to build applications in Rust that store and retrieve data from an Aerospike cluster.

libevent

The libevent client provides an asynchronous, non-blocking API to store and retrieve data from an Aerospike database cluster.

The libevent client is written in C. It uses the libevent library explicitly, and is intended for use only by applications that already run using libevent. The application is responsible for managing the libevent event bases, and the client must be told which event base to use for each database transaction.

Node.js on Windows

The Node.js client port to Windows is a community supported project and suitable for application prototyping and development.

PHP

The PHP client enables you to build applications in PHP that store and retrieve data from an Aerospike cluster.
