Altibase is an enterprise grade open source DBMS. It allows for high performance and high scalability. It is compatible and interoperable with such legacy relational DBMSs as Oracle, MS and IBM.
Since 1999, Altibase has pioneered the in-memory database industry. Altibase has over 600 global enterprise clients including 8 Fortune Global 500 companies. In 2005, Altibase was the world’s first database vendor to develop and commercialize a hybrid database.
Altibase is one of the very few relational database vendors who provide sharding technologies. Its cutting-edge sharding is designed to super-minimize the use of coordinators so that it allows for linear performance enhancement with almost no coordinator-related bottlenecks no matter how many servers are added.
Since its inception, Altibase has been renowned for its in-memory capabilities. Altibase has competed neck to neck with Oracle TimesTen in the in-memory database space. Altibase has been deployed for over 6000 use cases that demand hundreds of thousands of transactions per second with response rates measured in microseconds.
Altibase is a hybrid database. Through its hybrid architecture, Altibase enables its customers to eliminates the need to purchase an in-memory database and a disk-resident database separately.
Need more speed? Store the data in memory and enjoy an order of magnitude performance benefits. Have huge amounts of rarely accessed historical data? Store the data on disk and enjoy the low cost and economical storage scalability of traditional hard disks.
Altibase is one of the only very few relational open source databases that provide sharding. Having served many mega telcos with hundreds of millions of subscribers, Altibase has naturally been requested to develop a scale-out technology as a means to cut down the costs associated with an ever-increasing data size in this age of big data. A key advantage of Altibase’s sharding is that it does not require any changes to existing applications in order to implement Altibase if your systems are built on relational databases. Consequently, existing DBAs will find it easy to learn, adopt and administer Altibase when they opt to scale out their systems with Altibase.
Altibase is a relational DBMS and matches Oracle function for function except that Altibase is open source. Altibase is one of a very small subset of database vendors that can provide time- and battle-tested enterprise grade DBMS software at a significantly lower than legacy DBMS vendors such as Oracle, Microsoft and IBM.
|Typical application scenarios|
Altibase has been deployed for over 6000 mission-critical use cases that demand hundreds of thousands of transactions per second with response rates measured in microseconds. Moreover, Altibase’s hybrid DB architecture allows for not only high performance data processing in main memory but vast storage capabilities of physical disk, thus significantly lowering TCO.
Since 1999, Altibase has served over 600 enterprise clients including 8 Fortune Global 500 companies. Its major clients include:
Samsung Electronics, HP, Hyundai, China Mobile, China Telecom, China Unicom, E*Trade, Toshiba Medical, POSCO, SK Telecom, Korea Telecom, LG U+, CoreDax, Hoa Soft, NH Bank, KDDI, Korea Airports Corp, Republic of Korea Marine Corps and more.
According to the 2019 Winter Customer Success Report, Altibase is one of the few operational DB vendors highly rated by customers @FeaturedCustomers Learn more:
