Difference between VelocityDB and VoltDB

1. VelocityDB :
VelocityDB is a .NET Object Database that can be embedded/distributed and extended to a graph data model (VelocityGraph). This database is fast and low memory consuming. VelocityDB is an extremely high performance, easy to use, scalable, embeddable and distributable object database system.

2. VoltDB :
VoltDB is distributed in-memory NewSQL RDBMS and an ACID-compliant RDBMS that uses a shared nothing architecture. This database was designed by Michael Stonebraker, Sam Madden, and Daniel Abadi. Initially VoltDB database included graphs for cluster throughput and latency as well as CPU and memory usage. VoltDB is based on H-Store and scales with the increasing core-per-CPU counts on multi-core servers.
