Tarantool is a super-fast NoSQL* in-memory database. Crystal is a super-fast compiled language. Take both.

* It is planned to fully support SQL in version 2, which is currently in alpha


Recent benchmarking of 100k select requests on a single 0.90Ghz CPU core with Tarantool running on the same machine via Docker:

$ crystal bench/select.cr --release
  1.530000   1.070000   2.600000 (  2.597737)

Resulting performance is 38.4k RPS, averaging in 26μs per request.

Projects using Tarantool


Add this to your application's shard.yml:

    github: vladfaust/tarantool.cr
    version: ~> 0.2.2

This shard follows Semantic Versioning 2.0.0, so see releases and change the version accordingly.


After you installed and run Tarantool and setup your schema, do:

require "tarantool"

db = Tarantool::Connection.new("localhost", 3301) # Initiate the connection
db.parse_schema # Save current box schema to db instance
db.insert(:examples, {1, "hello"}) # Insert "hello" tuple
db.update(:examples, :primary, {1}, {"=", 1, "hello world"}) # Replace "hello" with "hello world"
db.select(:examples, :name, {"hello world"}).body.data # => [[1, "hello world"]]

All Tarantool::Connection#* requests are synchronous, they will be waiting until the response is received. However, a single Tarantool instance itself is capable of handling lots of simultaneous connections, so for the best perfomance consider running requests in multiple fibers:

32.times do
  spawn do
    db.ping # All 32 pings are executed concurrently


  1. Run docker run --name mytarantool -d -p 3301:3301 -v /var/lib/docker/volumes/tarantool:/var/lib/tarantool tarantool/tarantool:1
  2. Connect to tarantool via console (docker exec -i -t mytarantool console) and apply schema found in /spec/helpers.lua
  3. crystal spec


  1. Fork it ( https://github.com/vladfaust/tarantool.cr/fork )
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Add some feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create a new Pull Request
