A distributed relational database that uses SQLite as its back end. Eventual consensus of all nodes that relies upon quorum. Automatically elects leaders in the network of servers. More lightweight than MySQL or Postgres. Has a REST API built in. Fully transactional. Hot backups possible. Uses SQLite in "all in memory" mode by default for efficiency, but can maintain on-disk database files with a command line option (the on-disk transaction log can be used to repopulate the in-memory database on startup). Written in Go.
