Altibase is an open source DBMS, and there are no license costs. But, Altibase is enterprise grade. Altibase has 17 years of experience in producing, selling and supporting mature DBMS solutions for over 600 enterprise clients including 8 of Fortune Global 500. Thus, it allows for the benefits of both huge cost savings of open source DBMSs and peace of mind and accountability provided by Altibase’s 17-year accumulated know-how of dealing with various mission critical use cases.

Altibase adheres to traditional relational paradigms so that its clients can adopt and utilize a cost effective open source DBMS without making the radical architectural changes required of significantly different database technologies such as NoSQL.

Altibase’s SQL compliance allows existing DBA resources to easily learn and administrate Altibase and eliminates the need for costly retraining and additional hiring. In addition, migrating systems using legacy relational databases to a new database that also supports relational features is exponentially less complex.

Altibase is a hybrid database which has both in-memory database features and on-disk database features in a single engine. This allows for unrivaled cost savings for those who would have to purchase two separate databases – one with in-memory capabilities of high performance for frequently used (hot) data and the other with on-disk capabilities of mass data storage for less frequently used (cold) data.

When it comes to cost, Altibase believes in an all-encompassing strategy to bring your database-related TCO down while simultaneously improving the performance and stability of your system.
