In-Memory Database Difference – The Future is Now
Why In-Memory Computing?
The speed of business is changing fast. Blink and your business becomes legacy. Blink and your database is legacy. Recently, Gartner‘s CEO indicated in a keynote speech that the “Internet of Things” is redefining the world as we now know it. Further, he noted that the current vendors that are leading the database space and ERP space will no longer be the leaders in 6 years – “Oracle and SAP.” The conclusion is that companies will live or die on three things: In-Memory databases, CEP and real-time sensor data. Altibase, for over 20 years, has led the way in all three areas with its In-Memory computing prowess.
Performance Advantage of In-Memory Databases vs. Traditional On-Disk Databases:
Traditional disk-resident relational databases are overwhelmed by the growth of data and the need for high-intensity data processing from online transactional processing and online analytical processing (OLTP / OLAP). In-Memory databases are designed to seamlessly handle these data demands. Altibase can process upwards of 1.5 million transactions per second (TPS). For on-disk databases, this type of performance is physically impossible. Pure on-disk database management systems are quickly becoming relegated to legacy because of their intrinsic design that cannot eliminate slow disk I/O. Additionally, although disk-resident databases can use caching to speed up relatively small data sets by utilizing In-Memory (RAM), this is only a viable solution for read operations while writes are still subject to I/O. Caching temporarily maintains frequently-accessed data but is not an In-Memory database or even a quasi In-Memory database.
How Does In-Memory Database Handle Large Storage Volume and Scale?
Hybrid In-Memory Database:
A hybrid In-Memory database that combines the speed of In-Memory and the storage capacity of physical disk is the answer. With ALTIBASE HDB (Hybrid DB), enterprises no longer have to compromise between data speed or data size. Altibase has the only true hybrid database that combines both RAM and disk in a single unified engine. We refer to this as 1+1=1 because 1 database has 1 In-Memory component and 1 on-disk component. The net result is the ability to store data In-Memory, on-disk or a combination of both. Through Altibase’s MOVE technology, any DBA can literally move data bidirectionally between In-Memory or on-disk with a simple proprietary SQL command, “MOVE.” The net result is extreme flexibility and ability to handle an unsurpassed variety of use-cases. Altibase products are built for both vertical and horizontal scalability. Altibase can scale through replication across unlimited nodes, table /distributed partitioning and can also handle Big Data through its Hadoop Connector. Traditional on-disk relational databases are overwhelmed by the growth of big data and the need for high-performance and as a result, In-Memory databases are now becoming mainstream. Altibase takes In-Memory one significant step further by marrying the benefits of both an In-Memory database and on-disk database in one tidy SQL standard traditional relational database . Welcome to the new paradigm in database management systems.
