Samsung Selects Altibase for Samsung Apps Store’s User Authentication System on Amazon AWS EC2 Cloud

Samsung Electronics, for its Smartphone Galaxy Series, Smart TV, Note Series, Tablets and Smart Cameras chooses key Altibase product, Altibase, with its Hybrid architecture to provide In-Memory + On-Disk database cloud authentication for its 100+ million users.


Altibase has helped our company expand its app base and user satisfaction in a very short time period while eliminating much of our previous headaches. We are very pleased with the results. – Senior Engineer of Samsung Electronics

Samsung Apps (i.e. iTunes, Google Play Store) ran on Oracle Coherence prior to its adoption of Altibase. Samsung required stable, uninterrupted service for the growing popularity of its Galaxy smartphone series as well as its other marquis products. Oracle Coherence did not provide continuous stability and this undermined Samsung’s service. The Oracle Coherence based backend failed, causing Samsung’s global authentication service to stop for several hours.

Further, Samsung could not recover critical data after the Oracle Coherence crash because of irretrievable data loss.

Samsung chose Altibase on the Amazon EC2 AWS Cloud platform to provide a high performance, reliable and robust global authentication service for its fast-growing number of App users. In addition to Samsung’s high performance (Hot Data) needs, it needed a solution for storing large historical data (Cold Data).

Samsung Apps needed to run without interruption and with real-time speed while possessing the capacity for an abundance of storage and the ability to easily scale-out.

Altibase provided Samsung with the features of High Availability, ACID compliance, replication and active-active configuration to meet all of those needs. In addition, since Altibase comes with In-Memory and On-Disk hybrid architecture out-of-the-box and in a single unified engine, there is virtually no limit to handle multi-temperature data.

“Since Altibase has in-memory Database and On-Disk Database in a single unified engine with a single interface, bidirectional movement of frequently used data and historical data is painless. Total cost of ownership (TCO) is significantly lower and is coupled with maximized flexibility. Use what you need, when you need it, in real-time.” – CEO of Altibase

Altibase has helped our company expand its app base and user satisfaction in a very short time period while eliminating much of our previous headaches. We are very pleased with the results.” – Senior Engineer of Samsung Electronics.

Altibase has received numerous awards and recognitions from both government and IT leaders for excellence in database management software solutions, pioneering R&D and leadership in In-Memory computing.

“I am especially pleased to have had the privilege to enhance Samsung Apps with Altibase, a solution that they can count on non-stop and without issue.” – CEO of Altibase

Growing demands of strategic data management is crucial to revenue growth, reduction in spend and sustained profitability. Success is defined by optimizing data management. Altibase In-Memory Database solutions are the single point solution for over 500 enterprise clients and thousands of deployments.

Big Data is here and Altibase is poised, ready and fully prepared to tackle the associated demands.
