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 disk tables
- Business Intelligence System – Dongwon F&B : Store historical/less frequently used data on disk tables.
