Tokyo Cabinet and Kyoto Cabinet are two libraries of routines for managing key-value databases. Tokyo Cabinet was sponsored by the Japanese social networking site, Mixi, and was a multithreaded embedded database manager, comparable in functionality to SQLite[dubious ] (but without an actual SQL implementation) and was announced by its authors as "a modern implementation of DBM". Kyoto Cabinet is the designated successor of Tokyo Cabinet.
