Overview

IBM solidDB is a relational database server that combines the high performance of in-memory tables with the nearly unlimited capacity of disk-based tables.

Pure in-memory databases are fast, but strictly limited by the size of memory. Pure disk-based databases allow nearly unlimited amounts of storage, but their performance is dominated by disk access. Even if the computer has enough memory to store the entire database in memory buffers, database servers that are designed for disk-based tables can be slow because the data structures that are optimal for disk-based tables are far from being optimal for in-memory tables. The solidDB solution is to provide a single hybrid database server that contains two optimized engines inside it:

  • The main-memory engine (MME) is optimized for in-memory access.
  • The disk-based engine (DBE) is optimized for disk-based access.

Both engines coexist inside the same server process, and a single SQL statement can access data from both engines.

MemSQL provides database solutions utilizing a unified platform that reduces complex infrastructure and empowers business leaders to be responsive and make decisions based on real-time data. Founded by two former Facebook development and engineering specialists, MemSQL's stated mission is to provide a simple, fast, and scalable database solution capable of handling today's Big Data problems. MemSQL's data warehousing solution relies on in-memory processing to enable real-time processing of transactional data. While the system can certainly store data, it is more of a data federation platform than a true data warehouse solution. Thanks to the tiered architecture, MemSQL is capable of processing in-memory data alongside a more traditonal columnar database. This capability allows analysts to analyse real-time and historical data together and combine disparate sources like relational and JSON data. MemSQL can also be used to process the exponentially increasing amounts of machine-generated data, and even to make or automate decisions based on this data as it is captured. Additionally, MemSQL includes ANSI SQL support and is ACID-compliant. MemSQL is being used by companies like Comcast, Zynga, Shutterstock, Verisign, and many others to make data-driven decisions and better engage their customers.
