ALTIBASE HDB Version 6.5 and Migration Center 6.1.1
Altibase is making an often difficult choice to replace incumbent databases, a far easier one for global enterprises. Its latest database release and feature set is loaded with improvements to make customers’ decisions to switch from their legacy databases a virtual no-brainer. The latest versions answer growing global demand for enhanced OEM software compatibility, migration ease, higher performance and significantly greater stability.
In recent months, Altibase’s previous version was pit against the leading DBMS vendor in numerous PoCs and won. The PoCs were conducted at customer sites in the US, China and Europe in the customers own application environments. These worldwide leaders are in telecommunications, finance and both private and public sector security.

The end-goal for Altibase is to make Altibase’s product a “no-touch needed” DBMS replacement for the leading incumbent. To that end, Altibase heeded the advice of its clientele and with the help of many of them, developed the new release.
Altibase began commercially 16 years ago, as an in-memory DBMS that simply rode on top of legacy, disk-resident databases for a high-speed injection to aid the most demanding applications on the performance side. Interoperability with those databases was critical to Altibase’s early success as it was purely designed at that time to have a symbiotic relationship with the on-disk DBMSs.
As such, Altibase was designed from the ground-up as a relational, SQL compliant in-memory DBMS that ran on almost any type of hardware and OS while supporting all of the most common connectors. Unlike other vendors who are now adding in-memory to their disk DBMSs, Altibase added the disk DBMS to the IMDBMS.
ALTIBASE HDB v6.5 recently displayed dramatic performance gains from its previous version in a TPC-H test. Intel, a global partner of Altibase, facilitated the benchmarking by creating replicate environments driven by its own Intel Xeon E7 processor. Complex queries showed a remarkable increase in parallel executions. The performance increases compared with the previous version ranged from 150% to 220%.
The new release has also added a feature called ALTIBASE Heartbeat (aheartbeat). HDB v6.5 automatically restarts when an abnormal occurrence arises. This feature adds an extra layer of confidence to its industry-leading high availability.
As the leader of In-Memory database since 1999, Altibase differentiates itself from other competitors by providing the best solutions to meet customer’s demands and help their companies to grow.
