Unlike other in-memory databases, Altibase leverages its hybrid architecture to eliminate limitations experienced by other in-memory database vendors. Altibase can store data in-memory, on-disk, or a combination of both.
Altibase stores data according to the temperature of the data. Cold data (historical data) is stored on-disk and hot data (frequently used data) is stored in-memory. Through this hybrid architecture, Altibase enables real time access to large volumes of data while simplifying high-intensity data processing.
Following case studies have hybrid architecture usages of Altibase.
- Integrated WEB SCADA System – KEPCO : Data past more than an hour is moved to the disk table
- Business Intelligence System – Dongwon F&B : Store historical/less frequently used data on disk tables.
