What is Tarantool?

Tarantool is a NoSQL database running inside a Lua program. It combines the network programming power of Node.JS with data persistency capabilities of Redis. It’s open source, BSD licensed.


  • Lua packages for non-blocking I/O, fibers and HTTP
  • MsgPack data format and MsgPack based client-server protocol
  • Two data engines:
    • 100% in-memory with optional persistence
    • 2-level disk-based B-tree, to use with large data sets (powered by Sophia)
  • secondary key and index iterators support (can be non-unique and composite)
  • multiple index types: HASH, BITSET, TREE
  • asynchronous master-master replication
  • authentication and access control


This driver is synchronous, so connection mustn’t be shared between threads/processes.

Run tests

On Linux:

$ python test

On Windows:

  • Setup a Linux machine with installed tarantool (called remote later).
  • (on remote) Copy unit/suites/lib/tarantool_python_ci.lua to /etc/tarantool/instances.available.
  • (on remote) Run tarantoolctl start tarantool_python_ci.
