Who

Korea Transportation Safety Authority (TS) operates and manages various transportation safety projects to protect lives and properties in all areas including land, aviation and railroad.

Problem

TS needed a DBMS that can handle multiple ride requests and simultaneously analyze traffic information in real time

  • TS needed an in-memory DBMS to collect and process the location information of passengers and taxis in real time.
  • TS also needed an on-disk DBMS to store and analyze the vast amounts of information regarding traffic, stagnation zones, accident zones and etc. according to taxi routes.
  • TS sought a solution that can quickly send information about nearest taxis’ locations and local traffic to passengers in real time when requested.

Solution

TS adopted Altibase for both in-memory and on-disk usages in 2014.

Results

TS can now manage large volumes of traffic information and handle location information of passengers and taxis in real time with a single unified DBMS.

  • Altibase enabled TS to collect and analyze 130,000 taxi routes every 5 seconds.
  • Altibase enabled TS to seamlessly integrate all of the information via MOVE and JOIN operations for memory tables and disk tables without any additional middleware or solutions necessary.
  • TCO was cut in half because of fewer licenses and integration middlewares for service operation.
