In-Memory Databasics – Altibase
What is the definition of an In-Memory database?
In-Memory Database Defined:
An In-Memory database (IMDBMS or MMDB) is a database management system (DBMS) that solely utilizes main memory (RAM) to store and manipulate data. The purpose of an In-Memory database is to provide blazing fast data processing speeds for online transactional processing and online analytical processing (OLTP / OLAP). By example, ALTIBASE XDB (Extreme In-Memory Database) can process over 1.4 million transactions per second (TPS). Click for details on advanced features and functionality.
What is the definition of a hybrid database?
Hybrid Database Defined:
A hybrid database (Hybrid DB) is a database management system that is a balanced database management system that offers high-performance data processing in main-memory with the vast storage capabilities of physical-disk. A hybrid database has an In-Memory database and an on-disk database in a single unified engine. As a result, data can be stored and manipulated in main-memory alone, on physical-disk alone or a combination of both. The integrated combination of both database types allows for unrivaled flexibility and robust functionality. By example, ALTIBASE HDB (Hybrid Database) was the first commercially available true hybrid database and is fortified with over 15 years of enterprise experience.

What is the definition of caching and an on-disk database?
On-Disk Database and Caching Defined:
An on-disk database is traditionally a general-purpose database management system (DBMS) that follows a relational model. It stores and manipulates data on physical-disk. The database landscape is changing and traditional on-disk databases are rapidly becoming legacy systems. The reason is because on-disk databases are slowed by disk I/O. Caching temporarily maintains frequently-accessed data In-Memory and as such, it is commonly misconstrued as being an In-Memory database or hybrid database. Caching, in stark contrast to an In-Memory database, is only fast for reads while data manipulation such as INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE (DML) is still subject to the sluggishness of normal disk I/O.
