Specific characteristics

The resource-optimized high-performance database system Transbase® impresses with its 4S Technology and a wide range of integrated options that optimally support the special requirements of a wide range of applications and can be combined as required. Its lean and efficient implementation makes Transbase® a high-performance complete system for mobile applications, edge computing on IoT end devices (eg Raspberry Pi) up to large server installations.

Transbase® is robust and efficient and designed for various operating modes:
- as High-End Database (Client-Server System) for operation over a network
- as IoT Database (Transbase® Edge) with edge computing on the IoT Device (eg Raspberry Pi)
- as Embedded Database (Transbase® Mobile) for mobile Apps with local Client/Server bundling
- as Archive Database (Transbase® Myriad) for text documents of all kinds
- as Publishing Database (Transbase® CD) on DVD-ROM or Blu-ray Disc

Through 4S Technology Transbase® is

Scalable (1S) through its flexible Architecture and efficient Implementation The quality of the algorithms and data structures used ensures excellent scalability - from a Mobile Device to Database Server. A Database Grid can also be set up using Database Replication.

Smart (2S) through Parallelization and optimized Algorithms Transbase® is distinguished by its intelligent query optimization and consistently exploits the clustered data storage and indexed access paths. The possibilities of modern multicore architectures are used not only for the parallel processing of multiple queries, but also for the internal parallelization of individual queries. Global and local data caches speed up the processing at a small size.

Slim (3S) through its memory-like Data Structures Efficient algorithms and data structures provide for a minimal amount of resources from Transbase® - both on the hard disk and in main memory: 2 MB of process size and 4 MB of cache already result in a very high-performance overall system. The logical and physical compression of the data at the side level significantly reduces the required memory space and thus also the IO times.

Secure (4S) through consistent Data and Access Protection Both the storage of the database contents as well as the communication between database and application are encrypted. The database contents can be protected differently by means of authentication and access privileges at the table and view level.

Competitive advantages

Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT) are placing new demands on database management systems (DBMS), we fulfill as the manufacturer of Transbase® Edge. A DBMS in the IoT environment must therefore be highly scalable, very smart, slim and secure (4S Technology). Transbase® is completely optimized in its architecture and conception to fulfill these criteria.

Thanks to its new crowd functionality, Transbase® Edge can be distributed. Results can be aggregated and consolidated across groups of edge nodes. The data can also be forwarded to analysis tools for more complex analysis. Transbase® Edge uses the new crowd function  to control parallel database queries via any number of connected edge databases from a central instance. While the original data is still on the edge device, the query results can be collected and aggregated by the central instance. This makes Transbase® Edge ideal as an IoT database.

The Transbase® Crowd feature also allows data to be partitioned and distributed horizontally across a pool of databases with the same database schema. Vertical partitioning of data can be accomplished by integrating the primary key into a view. Transbase® Edge databases can also be operated as a database cluster or grids.

Typical application scenarios

In following areas we created solutions based on Transbase®, C-chain and SecureBase:
Edge Computing and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)

Transbase® Edge can be operated as an IoT database thanks to the new Single Process Architecture (SPA), and thus represents the extension of Transbase® Mobile for IoT devices. It is only known and available for one application, does not require system-wide service, and is tightly integrated into the application process as a microservice. With Transbase® Edge, external access to the database can be restricted to a single application. With onboard C-chain, we have developed a C-chain version especially for M2M processes, such as those found in the areas of intelligent manufacturing, robotic process automation, eMobility, smart energy or eHealth. All components of C-chain are bundled in one device. So the complete C-chain system can be used on a single edge computer like running a Raspberry Pi.

Energy efficient Smart Home Management with Transbase® Crowd

With Transbase Crowd smartResidence systems can be fed with releveant household data to optimally manage all households connected to the with regards to temperature and light regulation, ventilation, device control and burglary protection.

Mobile Diagnostic Devices
Applications on mobile platforms have limited resources. With our streamlined and resource-efficient data base system Transbase® Mobile, you get maximum performance and performance, an even slimmer Transbase® version specially adapted to this platform, which avoids any overhead unnecessary in this constellation.

Secure Document Exchange (SDES)
SecureBase ensures a Secure Document Exchange System (SDES). End-to-end encryption enables both secure transport and secure storage of data. Each user generates a key pair from a public and a secret key for encryption and decryption of the data.

Aftermarket Information Systems
Your requirements for Database Publishing Applications on read-only media like CD, DVD or Blu-ray can be implemented with Transbase® CD. Thanks to its special Technology, Transbase® CD not only supports the efficient operation of the Application with direct access to the ROM data but also the entire process of production and distribution of media and updates - even over the Internet.

Data Warehouse and BA/BI Applications
Through its unique Hypercube Indexing Technology, Transbase® Hypercube supports data analysis and enables high-performance operation of your Data Warehouse Systems and BA / BI Applications, even with very large and rapidly growing data stocks.
