Why It's Different: Baidu uses an advanced in-memory database
called Feed-Cube to support data storage and information retrieval in its cloud-based Feed Stream services.
Kinetica's broadly applicable in-memory database
is powered by NVIDIA's graphics processing units (GPUs) and can run both on premise and in the cloud, including on Amazon Web Services, Dell-EMC, Google Cloud, IBM Minsky, and Microsoft Azure.
Once this was a pipe dream, but today in-memory databases
are processing huge datasets.
Ellison kicked off the event with an introduction of several new hardware systems, highlighted by an in-memory database
Aslett's note marks a growing trend among analysts who see Kognitio as a serious competitor in the in-memory analytics space; a recent report from Enterprise Management Associates calls Kognitio "the most mature platform," compared to competing in-memory databases
such as SAP HANA and Oracle TimesTen for analytical workloads, saying the Kognitio in-memory database
"has an edge in flexibility of environment" over its competitors in terms of data processing functionality.
Exasol, for example, makes it possible to run existing SQL applications on top of an in-memory database
. Conversely, Starcounter has developed a NoSQL database that runs completely in-memory.
It's no secret that SAP's HANA in-memory database
has become the centrepiece of the software vendor's technology strategy.
Because it can handle massive volumes of structured and unstructured data entirely in its in-memory database
, SAP HANA enables applications and analytics engines to execute data intense operations right where data resides.
Due to its innovative semantic technologies and in-memory database
allowing enterprises to leverage the complete IT stack in one or multiple data centers and implement an up to 100% automated process for requesting, approving, deploying, updating, and retiring multi-tiered multi-system enterprise application landscapes, thus making such landscapes available within 10 minutes without any post-provisioning effort, fluid Operations(tm) has been named a market game-changer and "Gartner Cool Vendor in the SAP Ecosystem".
The solution delivers performance equal to an in-memory database
, while delivering the persistence of historical and transactional data that is required for CEP and event-driven SOA.
