Altibase Revamps DBMS Industry with All-Inclusive Pricing for its Enterprise-Edition In-Memory Databases

Altibase, the world’s most trusted in-memory database, recently announced a simplified all-inclusive pricing model for its relational in-memory hybrid database.

Altibase’s enterprise pricing model simplifies esoteric database licensing practices. Database licensing can be extremely complicated and overly confusing on the enterprise level. For other vendors, the irreconcilable damage of hidden costs, unsavory business tactics and distrust from loyal customers is now front and center.

In stark contrast, Altibase is making licensing easy. Its all-inclusive pricing model for its enterprise databases includes the license with no additional charge for advanced features and functions. Other database vendors charge exorbitant fees for “add-ons.” These may include but are not limited to replication, advanced security, in-memory capabilities, high availability, geo-spatial, disaster recovery, partitioning and much more.*

Altibase’s list price is already significantly lower than its primary competitors. The all-inclusive pricing model gives enterprise clients major savings over a la carte pricing strategies, while giving them peace of mind. Altibase, as a software-only, hardware-agnostic DBMS vendor saves substantial additional expense by running on all commodity platforms.

“Altibase is taking a chapter out of commercial banking with no hidden fees or gimmicks.  Altibase already has the highest customer satisfaction and retention rate in the database industry. However, we clearly understand that if we do not continuously listen to our clients and turn their suggestions into actions, we will fall into an abyss of complacency. This will not happen – ever. Our team has put decades of work into our products for technical innovation and transformation. Our new all-inclusive pricing model is another major step forward in furthering our best-in-class customer satisfaction rate.” — CEO of Altibase

Altibase’s In-Memory Database Offers Speed, Scalability, and Security to Web-Based Cloud Services

Altibase, the world’s most trusted in-memory database solution is stabilizing cloud computing with their unique hybrid database, ALTIBASE HDB.

As cloud computing continues to penetrate into mainstream technology, consumers are taking advantage of the capability to access data at will. Simply because data is stored in the “cloud” does not mean it is immune to bottlenecks that impact performance, scalability, and security. In order to limit these bottlenecks, cloud-based services also require a backend database management system (DBMS) that not only maintain these loads, but can ensure top of the line performance, scalability, and security.

Altibase is renowned for solving the dilemma that plagues the database management world: the inevitable decision between speed and scalability. Further, with other in-memory database vendors, data integrity is always a concern because of the volatile nature of RAM. Altibase has no such limitations. Altibase’s hybrid database, ALTIBASE HDB, offers extreme flexibility by combining an In-Memory database with a disk-resident database in a single unified database. By combining the speed of RAM and the storage capacity of physical disk in a single database, enterprises are armed with complete data management freedom. This same hybrid architecture consequently creates a database that is more secure than any traditional legacy database. With Altibase’s true hybrid architecture and full ACID compliance, data integrity is never an issue. With Durability levels that can be customized, clients have the flexibility to choose Durability that custom-fits their specific use-case.

Altibase, who is trusted by over 550 enterprise clients worldwide, is trusted for many organizations’ cloud-based services including cloud-enabled services for data federation in real-time, web-based employee management systems, CRM systems, and global cloud authentication for over 100 million users for Samsung’s App Store.

“With Altibase, there is no need to choose between speed, scalability, or security.” says Altibase’s CEO. “We have been in the forefront of the in-memory database market since 1999, and organizations all over the world trust that our products will future-proof their business, allowing them to easily make advances into new technological frontiers like the cloud, M2M and CEP.”

Altibase is a real-time ACID and SQL standard compliant relational database. Coupled with its patented MOVE technology that can move data between memory and disk with a simple command, Altibase boasts ease of use and implementation. It is the database of choice for thousands of mission critical applications of organizations including Samsung, HP, and E-Trade.

Altibase’s In-Memory Database Chosen by a Top 3 U.S. Insurance Company for its Mission Critical Management Systems

Organizations across the world have begun taking advantage of the extreme speeds of in-memory databases. The consensus among enterprises is that in-memory databases are no longer a niche technology, but a necessity required to make sure that they are not left in the technological dust. Insurance companies are no exception to this; it is quintessential that they receive data, efficiently, on demand and in the form that they need it in. Ultimately, the necessity of enormous transactional speed and storage capacity of physical disk is what led the insurance company (who requests anonymity) to select Altibase.

The insurer deployed Altibase’s hybrid in-memory database for its Applications Monitoring, Marketing Communication Management and Mission Critical Management systems. It now has a comprehensive view of the organization’s activity allowing it to be reactive and proactive in real-time.

“It is exciting to see our technology successfully utilized to help a leader in insurance with its business activities. Altibase has received much attention in the U.S. and Europe of late, and our 20+ years of R&D in pure in-memory databases is now proving its worth; in-memory databases are now clearly becoming mainstream. Altibase has never been inclined to follow any technological trends. As we have been doing since our roots as a research project in 1991, Altibase takes an antithetical view and turns it into the industry standard.” – CEO of Altibase

The company swiftly identified the distinct advantages of Altibase’s hybrid in-memory database over caching offerings from other major vendors. Altibase’s in-memory database is a true relational database management system (DBMS) and is wholly different from a caching solution (caching is only good for reads and not writes). Speed was not the only requirement for the insurance company; it also needed to tap years of historical data to model against real-time data in order to bolster its predictive analysis. The company needed to manipulate data instantaneously while having the ability to store vast amounts of data on-disk. Altibase delivered flexibility with speed and size as well as custom durability levels (data integrity).

By leveraging the speed and flexibility of Altibase’s in-memory database with true hybrid architecture, the insurance company is now able to implement appropriate solutions without delay. The positive effects of this time to value are transparent to the insurer’s customers while it concurrently satisfies client demands for accurate information and business processes to support their needs.

“ALTIBASE HDB far exceeded our initial expectations of increasing transactional speeds. 8 months after implementation, Altibase has proven to be a significant asset for our organization on multiple levels. Altibase is helping us prepare for IT plans on many more levels than we previously thought. Our goals to quickly improve on loss prevention, mitigate risk, and create new lines of insurance services are significantly more concrete.” – CTO, Company Confidential

Altibase’s HDB has a unique architecture that couples an in-memory database with an on-disk database in a single unified engine. Altibase refers to this technology as 1+1=1. Altibase’s hybrid database allows the insurer to persist data in-memory, on-disk or a combination of both. It also allows bidirectional movement of hot and cold data with its proprietary MOVE technology.

To tackle a wide array of use cases,Altibase is easy to use (SQL-92 Compliance, supports all common interfaces, requires minimal application programming for implementation, etc.) and is able to process data quickly while storing large data sets through the on-disk database, all in a single engine. Altibase provides ways to drastically increase speed and lower TCO while ensuring complete data integrity, zero latency, and zero downtime.

Competitors Fighting to Chase Altibase’s In-Memory Database with In-Memory “Options”

Recently, database competitors have touted the benefits of new in-memory “options” as though they were true in-memory database management systems (DBMS), when in fact they are not.

True in-memory DBMSs differentiate themselves from in-memory “options” (AKA caching) because caching only increases the speed of reads and not writes. Altibase’s in-memory database has an architecture that handles both reads and writes at the speed of RAM.

Caching temporarily maintains frequently-accessed data in-memory, and as such, it is commonly misconstrued as being an in-memory database or hybrid database. Caching is not a database at all. It is a cache.

One competitor’s new in-memory “option,” which is not yet commercially available, is merely a fancier descriptor for caching. For online transactional processing (OLTP) databases, data manipulation (DML) is critical. Since caching cannot handle DML, there is really nothing newly developed here.

In recent years, several competitors have experimented in the in-memory computing market by acquiring small in-memory companies with questionable success. In stark contrast, Altibase’s technology was developed from the ground up and its ease of use is backed by its extensive enterprise client base.

“I am extremely pleased that the world finally realizes that in-memory computing is not a crazy, whimsical idea anymore. However, the new iteration of in-memory options, at this point, are simply smoke and mirrors. The recent spike in interest only cements Altibase’s ability to innovate far ahead of any technological trends. Our decades of experience in in-memory databases is more crucial now than ever before.” – CEO of Altibase

Unlike many commercial caching solutions, a full-featured in-memory database does not lose data when shut down or restarted. Altibase adheres to full, real time ACID compliance, and durability that guarantees data integrity. Altibase has a persistent cache which is a default setting, and can recover all data without issue.

Since Altibase combines an in-memory database and physical disk database in a single unified engine, strict durability is possible and assures complete data integrity.

Altibase’s HybridDB is a single database solution that meets all needs in any use case. With persistent cache, In-Memory, and on-disk in a single database, flexibility and data integrity are a given. With Altibase, leaving no need to purchase a caching solution.

Altibase In-Memory Database Selected by a Top 3 U.S. Security Company for Real-Time Surveillance Systems

Altibase, the leader of In-Memory databases, today announces the integration of its in-memory database management system into a top U.S. security company to help with the increasing demands of commercial and residential security surveillance.

As threats grow each and every day, enterprises are deploying mature in-memory database management systems to help fight crime. The prevalence of crime is exploding and encompasses both physical and cyber threats. Altibase provides the company (who requests anonymity) with the benefits of fail-safe, real-time data collection, CEP and the ability to manage sensor data to further cement the company’s position as a global leader in security.

The company relies on streams of data that come in from sensors both locally and across the globe to identify threats. Additionally, the company must make sense of that data to identify real threats versus false-positives. Altibase gives the company the tools to handle large volumes of data in real-time while also harnessing that data to cross-check historical data – all in a blink of an eye.

Altibase’s hybrid In-Memory database, Altibase, was chosen among 3 other leading database vendors to help protect the world against crime. The security company is responsible for monitoring audio, visual, and geo-locale security

“We chose Altibase because of its proven maturity in the high-performance database field. Performance was a large consideration, but Altibase’s experience was our final decision making criteria.” –Infrastructure Lead, Company Confidential

Altibase was selected by the company for its integrated surveillance systems and real-time surveillance systems that monitor all events that occur in commercial and residential properties, defense sites, aerospace, and other related sites.

“Altibase is humbled by the fact that a leader in global security chose our in-memory database for its most mission-critical applications. It is a testament to our tireless dedication to provide enterprises with the most battle-tested in-memory database in the world. There is nothing that speaks more clearly than Altibase’s thousands of proven use-cases, and we stand by each case as though it were our first.” – CEO of Altibase

Altibase helps its customers create a data environment that is highly flexible and customizable. Since ALTIBASE HDB is a true hybrid database, it can process vast amounts of data in-memory with extreme transactional speed, while permitting larger data sets to reside on-disk. Altibase refers to this single unified engine, as 1+1=1. One database for virtually all data needs.

Altibase’s Hybrid In-Memory Database Provides the Tools to Protect Organizations from Data Breaches – eTDE, ECC, 1x Decryption

Altibase’s hybrid in-memory database is fighting the war on data breaches by redirecting perpetrators to easier prey. Unfortunately, there is no way to absolutely protect from data breaches; however, Altibase’s unique hybrid engine provides organizations with the tools to divert criminal attention to easier targets. 

Data security has always been a critical IT concern, but recent data breaches at Target, Michael’s, Adobe, Yahoo, AOL and others have highlighted the devastating impact it can have on an organization’s bottom line.  The collateral damage to financial institutions is massive. The recent breach of Target’s data not only had an enormous cost in dollar terms, but also severely marred its reputation and consumer confidence.

A 100% guarantee of complete data security is technically impossible.  Every system has potential holes; every kind of encryption can eventually be broken. Add human error into the equation, and data vulnerability is spinning out of control.

Sound scary? It is. Altibase can

Altibase’s hybrid in-memory database combines a RAM database and on-disk database in a single unified engine which marries high-intensity data processing though RAM and mass storage capacity of physical disk. What this allows is rapid detection of real-time data, cross-checked with historical baseline data to identify outliers that may indicate a threat 24/7/365. The hybrid architecture allows for high-speed processing with seamless communication with historical data in a single database – efficiency delivered.

With this hybrid foundation, Altibase HDB’s advanced, native encryption features such as Enhanced Transparent Data Encryption (eTDE), Encrypted Comparison Code (ECC) and 1-time decryption are designed to give enterprises enough time to detect the breach, inform all impacted parties, and take remediation measures.  This gives organizations the tools and the time that they need to respond to and extinguish the impacts of data security breaches before the results are irreparable.

“In the wake of the recent data breaches, organizations must work closely with their solution providers as well as adopt cutting-edge database technology that can help protect against data breaches. The situation is quite analogous to a safe. All safes can be broken into, but it is a matter of how long it takes to break in that deters criminals from choosing ‘A’ or ‘B’ as their target. With our hybrid database and robust set of native data security tools, Altibase’s job is to make our clients’ data too time-consuming to deal with, so that the would-be perpetrators move on to easier prey. “- CEO of Altibase

Data breaches are unfortunately an accepted reality amongst enterprises. The best strategy that any company can use is to encrypt their data enough so that if a breach occurs, the data itself is useless to the attacker.

However, as Moore’s Law continues to press on, this strategy becomes increasingly ineffective. For example, if an encryption is developed today that claims to take 100 years to crack, in 4.5 years, that same encryption will only be secure for 100 days. If OpenSSL’s Heartbleed Flaw taught us anything, it is that even encryption is not absolute, and additional layers of security must be developed to prevent attackers from accessing data itself.

Looking forward, Altibase is working closely within Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) on a variety of use-cases. NFV and SDN appear to be on a strong trajectory for how enterprises route, store, and analyze data. These platforms, while still fairly new, open up a world of possibilities for application developers and security engineers by bringing data access and real-time traffic analysis down to the packet level in a unified software layer. This makes the decision of choosing a database on which to build your platform an absolutely crucial component of your strategy.

Altibase was founded on the principles of looking beyond the now in order to iterate and redefine the way data is managed and protected.

In-memory databases are now beginning to make a tremendous impact on business.  Early adopters will cement a competitive edge that is difficult to refute. An in-memory database management system stores and manipulates data entirely in RAM.

ALTIBASE XDB (eXtreme database) is Altibase’s pure in-memory database that processes and manages data in RAM alone. By design, and with more advanced features, it performs 10-20 times faster than Altibase’s hybrid database. ALTIBASE XDB can also interoperate with ALTIBASE HDB to provide enterprises with the ability to process hot, warm and cold data easily and as needed. The combination tackles any data management needs head-on.

Altibase drives performance and revenue growth for the likes of E*TRADE, Samsung, HP, China Telecom and China Unicom and maximizes their efficacy in areas like network utilization/service reliability, integrated billing/authentication, fraud detection/prevention and infrastructure monitoring/security. ALTIBASE HDB database management is the single solution for a chronic problem.

Altibase, the leader of in-memory databases today announces its continued growth in the mobile communications space for many of the best universities. Altibase is actively involved with universities in the US, Europe, India, Canada, Turkey, China and Korea.

Altibase’s in-memory database is widely known as a frontrunner for online enrollment systems where mass concurrent logon attempts and changed data must be reported in real-time. Its latest milestone is with a top 5 national university in Korea, Chungnam University. Chungnam University has 74 sister-affiliations worldwide with its US presence at University of Illinois and State University of New York at Stony Brook.


Chungnam University signed its agreement to adopt Altibase’s hybrid database, ALTIBASE HDB to implement its entire mobile campus communications platform into one unified database management system. It chose Altibase’s hybrid database because of its ability to handle all real-time data processing needs in-memory while being able to store historical data on-disk. Altibase has both a RAM component and physical disk component in a single database.

Altibase‘s in-memory database will enhance every aspect of our campus processes through limitless mobile access. In addition to course enrollment, school activities and curriculum-oriented actions, our mobile administration system will scale with the growing demands of student and professor communication. I am confident that Altibase’s past record of success in education and support will help our university by implementing and executing on the world’s most advanced mobile campus.” – Mr. G.C. Lee, Director of IT Infrastructure, Chungnam University

The new mobile campus will be highly flexible. It works on any mobile device, tablet and PC’s with access to both native apps and web based applications.
