Altibase Announces that Samsung Electronics Has Replaced Oracle with Altibase for its Refurbishment System

Altibase is pleased to announce that Samsung Electronics has adopted Altibase for its factories to produce refurbished products. By switching to Altibase, Samsung Electronics has significantly reduced its total cost of ownership, while taking advantage of high data processing speeds and hybrid features of Altibase over Oracle.

Samsung Electronics has recently set up factories to produce refurbished products. The company had found Oracle databases onerously expensive. Its license costs were too high, and so were its maintenance fees. After conducting a series of intensive benchmark tests to look for an alternative to Oracle, the company finally chose Altibase in 2018.

We are pleased to announce that Samsung Electronics has adopted Altibase for its refurbishing factories. This is a major milestone for the product, and we are excited to offer the cutting-edge features of Altibase along with a very low total cost of ownership,” said James Jang, CEO of Altibase Corp.

The Samsung factories are meant for refurbishing unused customer returns or defective products returned under warranty. Consequently, keeping manufacturing/operation costs as low as possible is the key to successful refurbishment. Databases comprise one of the largest and the most expensive segments of the enterprise software landscape and over 50% of the cost of its total application stack.

From its past experience of deploying Altibase, Samsung Electronics had no doubt as to Altibase’s product maturity, functionality and reliability. In addition, Altibase has its own unique advantage compared to Oracle: Altibase’s hybrid architecture allows for utilization of memory tables for high performance and disk tables for economical storage, and consequently it eliminates the need for Samsung Electronics to purchase an in-memory database and an on-disk database separately, further lowering total cost of ownership.

Highlights of Altibase adoption at Samsung Electronics: 

  • Altibase’s in-memory capabilities and advanced query optimization techniques provide Samsung Electronics with high performing data processing speed, which is mandatory for its MES with high throughput requirements.
  • Utilizing Altibase’s Migration Center, it was easy to convert complex Oracle procedures to Altibase procedures, and the migration from Oracle to Altibase was easy and straightforward.
  • High availability was achieved by reconfiguring with Altibase’s shared-nothing replication.
  • Altibase’s replication replaced the enormously expensive Oracle’s Real Application Cluster (RAC), eliminating the need to deploy an unnecessary 3rd party redundancy solution. The result is lower total cost of ownership.
  • Samsung Electronics made the most of Altibase’s scalar subquery caching technique. Using the technique, it could enhance the performance by over 100%, as its scalar subqueries have relatively smaller number of distinct values (NDV).

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

Samsung Electronics ready to become ‘first-mover’ in global 5g equipment business

Samsung Electronics set the bar in embracing new 5G network technology

The South Korea-based technology giants, Samsung Electronics, are set to become the first company to welcome new 5G network technology, The Investor reports.

The firm will embrace the new era of fifth-generation network systems with equipment that is said to “sit above the competition.”

At a press conference on Friday, Kim Young-ki, head of Samsung Electronics’ network business division, stated: “Right now, Samsung is really becoming a ‘first-mover’ in 5G, a technology that will bring new value to the world.”

“Samsung is an attractive equipment vendor for telecommunication companies working to successfully deploy fifth-generation services worldwide.”

Kim Young-ki also announced that by 2020, Samsung would aim to control 20% of the global 5G equipment market.

By enabling the new 5G network, 28 Gigahertz will be required in order to meet the networks demands. This is in addition to 800 megahertz of bandwidth that will be utilised in order to receive the maximum speed of 10 gigabytes per second.

Samsung used Multi-Input Multi-Output technologies through radio frequency to create and form the basis of 5G without the necessity of buying more spectrum or adding new base stations.

The multinational conglomerate used a total of 1,024 antennas to complete the process.

“A technology that can handle a bandwidth as wide as this and achieve a throughput of 10 Gbps is what should truly be considered as 5G technology,” Kim Young-ki confirmed.

“And it’s important to note that this is a technology that is not undergoing tests, but is set for (imminent) commercialization.”

Korea anticipates a nationwide 5G network to be in operation by March 2019.

Altibase can be used as a persistent cache and is open source. Thus, there is no need to purchase separate caching solutions

How does Altibase perform as a persistent cache?

Aug. 23. 2018

Altibase can be utilized as a persistent in-memory cache which eliminates common issues associated with commercial caching solutions.

The following case studies include related stories.

Caching is a good strategy to use when specific query results need to be returned quickly. However, using this method does not give full flexibility for increasing performance amongst all data and operations:

  • Caching is only useful for common read operations; any DML (INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE) that is executed will run at low, disk-based speeds. When used in an in-memory only mode, Altibase stores all data in memory, so any query that is run on the data will perform at cached speeds, including DML.
  • Unlike many commercial caching solutions, Altibase does not lose data when shut down or restarted. Altibase adheres to full, real time ACID compliance that guarantees data durability. Altibase’s persistent cache is a default setting, and can recover all data without any issues.
  • Since Altibase combines an in-memory database and an on-disk database in a single unified database, strict durability is possible and so is complete data durability.
  • Altibase provides MOVE technology, allowing DBAs to decide which sets of data should be high-speed and which are designated for long-term storage.
  • Altibase is a single database solution that meets all needs in any use case. With persistent in-memory and on-disk in a single database, flexibility and data integrity are given. With Altibase, there is no need to purchase separate caching solutions.

Representative Use Cases That Can Take Advantage of Altibase’s Persistent Cache Solution?

Any business that needs high performance can take advantage of it instantly:

  • Risk Management
  • Fraud Detection
  • Security Intelligence
  • Supply Chain Tracking
  • Telecom/Media Revenue Leakage
  • Service Delivery
  • Online Gaming
  • Inventory Forecasting
  • Transportation Operation Management
  • Software-as-a-Service
  • Real time Analytics
  • Profitability Analysis
  • Global Web Commerce
  • Sales Incentive Promotions Management
