Altibase is Deployed for Data Management Platform for Airport Traffic Control

Altibase is Deployed for Data Management Platform for Airport Traffic Control

NEW YORKApril 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Altibase announces that Korea Airports Corporation (KAC) has adopted Altibase for its big data platform harnessing various IoT technologies.

KAC carries out construction, management and operation of airports and manages and controls airport traffic. It manages and operates total of 14 airports in Korea.

KAC has long been looking for databases for its big data platform to utilize cutting-edge IoT technologies to improve the efficacy of collecting and analyzing of data such as passenger and airport flow. However, KAC’s legacy DBMSs failed to meet its requirements:

  • KAC is inundated with a huge amount of data influx from its 14 airports. The legacy DBMSs did not meet the throughput requirement, a minimum of 100,000 transactions per second in storing and manipulating formal data. As a result, the whole system often fell into arrears.
  • Even mere seconds of database downtime cannot be tolerated with KAC, which could lead to fatal casualties, not to mention lost revenues and reputation. Consequently, an extremely high level of stability is required of its DBMSs.
  • The new DBMS should be compatible and interoperable with other core systems of Hadoop and the platform as well.

KAC conducted a number of BMTs and eventually chose Altibase over Oracle.

  • Altibase’s 19 years’ accumulated knowhow in the field of MES and experience in storage and analysis of big data gained high scores.
  • Altibase’s in-memory capabilities allow for high throughput and low latency, particularly high processing performance of big data.
  • High performance was a requisite in the use of UI/UX.
  • KAC’s zero tolerance of database downtime was met by Altibase.

As a result, KAC is now able to collect and analyze big data (i.e. flight status and passenger flow) in real time, to anticipate airport congestion, improve passenger convenience and to more efficiently operate airport resources. Moreover, with cooperation with mobile service providers, KAC has added new passenger services by providing the shortest routes from their departing points to their airports to avoid heavy traffic.

After nearly 20 years as a closed-source database, Altibase is now open source, and that includes its state-of-the-art scale-out technology, sharding.

Altibase Delivers Next DBMS Version and Updated Migration Tools

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.

Although Altibase is already well-known for its relative ease of migration and universal application compatibility, customers have still voiced sentiment for it to create an even easier DBMS solution that would make the porting process better. Migration Center 6.1.1 does exactly that. It is designed to make the migration process easier and with far less client–side customization. The latest version mitigates a litany of issues that can arise from migration challenges. For example, it helps enterprises port from a massive amount of proprietary procedural extensions.

Altibase is the easiest replacement for Oracle that I have ever seen.” — Director, R&D, Top 5 Telecommunications ISV

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 has always been a bit contrarian and I suppose that they now call that innovative or transformative. In the end, we are here to make our customers’ lives easier by being flexible, simpler, and all while drastically lowering TCO. All of that comes with the added benefit of having a new DBMS that’s wicked fast, persistent, while fitting nicely in all stacks, spanning Big Data, data center consolidation, Cloud, PaaS and web-scale to name a few. We have and will remain true to our devotion to development and you can certainly look forward to seeing more frequent releases. We are pushing our R&D even harder with the single-minded goal to absolutely cement Altibase as the only logical vendor to be able to replace the current leader for years to come.” – CEO of Altibase

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.

A Top 10 Tech Trend 2 Years Ago – In-Memory Databases are Now a Must

In the not too distant past, in fact, quite recently, many chuckled at the notion of RAM being used as a viable storage medium for database management systems. Boy, have times changed.

Database

I have heard it all:

“RAM is way too expensive, conceptually it sounds great, but it will never be used in the real-world.”

“Our data is important to us, so RAM will never work because if the power goes out, we lose all of our data.”

“I don’t need that kind of performance.”

According to a recent article in InformationWeek, 10 In-Memory Database Options Power Speedy Performance:

“Yes, the death of the conventional disk drive has been greatly exaggerated, but Moore’s Law has brought down the cost of RAM so dramatically that in-memory technology is getting to be downright pervasive.” –Doug Henshchen, Executive Editor of InformationWeek

“The earliest purveyors of in-memory databases included Altibase, solidDB (recently divested by IBM), and TimesTen (acquired in 2005 and still owned by Oracle). These products emerged for niche applications such as telecom, financial trading, and high-speed e-commerce. Today these products are seeing broader use, branching into analytics, big data, gaming, and Internet-of-Things-style applications.” –Doug Henshchen, Executive Editor of InformationWeek

“From Altibase to VoltDB, and covering options from IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, and SAP, we wrap up leading in-memory databases and add-on options. When you need speed, here are 10 tools to choose.” –Doug Henshchen, Executive Editor of InformationWeek

The reality:
Companies that are early to embrace in-memory DBMS technology will have a leg up on the competition. From real-time inventory control, compliance/policy control, defense and financial trading to authentication, marketing communications management and geo-location tracking, in-memory databases are taking over. In-memory databases still have a storage limitation defined by the amount of RAM able to be stuffed into a machine. However, single servers have the ability to handle 6 TBs of RAM, and this limitation is rapidly fading away.

The storage limitations do constrain some use cases that involve data warehouses and other massive petabyte scale deployments, but by and large, thousands of common use cases benefit from in-memory performance. This phenomenon will only grow over time.

With over several hundred in-memory database options available today, it is still remarkable that only a handful preside as the best of the best.

Altibase prides itself on its maturity, being one of the first to come to market in the world. With its humble beginnings 23 years ago as an academic research project, it is amazing that it is now the in-memory DBMS vendor-of-choice for nearly 600 of the top enterprises across the globe.
