Lucid KV

Lucid KV is a high performance, secure, and distributed key-value store with an HTTP API. Written in Rust, Lucid KV is designed to be fast, reliable, and flexible, offering a variety of features through a modular configuration.

Key Features

High Performance and Distributed

Lucid KV is engineered for high performance and can be deployed in a distributed manner, ensuring reliability and scalability.

Modular Configuration

The system is built around a modular configuration, enabling features such as persistence, encryption (SSE), compression, and replication to be enabled or disabled on the fly.


Lucid KV provides an HTTP API for easy integration and interaction, making it accessible to a wide range of applications and users.


Security is a core focus, with support for encryption to protect data at rest and during transmission.
