The tests included 'pulling the plug' mid-execution, which confirmed the AGIGARAM product's ability to save data persistently in the event of system failure, and to facilitate recovery.
In addition, eXtremeDB's speed managing data in AgigA Tech's NVDIMM proved equal to using conventional memory (DRAM). Alternative
McObject has published the results of its benchmark tests using eXtremeDB and AgigA Tech's NVDIMM in a free report available atwww.mcobject.com/imds-nvdimm-paper.
'The idea that there must be a tradeoff between performance and persistence/durability has become so ingrained in the database field that it is rarely questioned,' said
'An In-Memory Database System is perhaps the ideal application to take advantage of the features of NVDIMMs,' said
In-memory database systems store records in main memory, leveraging DRAM's superior read/write speed while eliminating the file I/O, cache management, data transfer and other overhead inherent in traditional database management systems (DBMSs) that incorporate persistent storage. As a result, IMDSs perform an order of magnitude faster than their disk-based counterparts.
But some applications require a higher level of data durability than DRAM can provide. As a solution,
