In-memory database systems (IMDSs) are held out as the ideal database solution for real-time applications. But what is unique about IMDSs versus caching, RAM-disks, “memory tables”, and solid-state disks? Don’t these all qualify as “in memory”?

In fact, the difference between these technologies and true in-memory database systems is significant, and can be critical to the success of embedded software projects.


Join McObject CEO Steve Graves for the Webinar, What Makes A Database System ‘In-Memory’? on June 25, 2009 to learn what’s truly unique about IMDSs technology, and how to harness this innovation to develop faster, more reliable, smaller-footprint real-time applications.

 Mr. Graves offers practical advice based on key topics in memory-based data management, including the following:

  • The limitations (and burden) of database caching
  • Avoiding data transfer and duplication
  • Volatility and recoverability
  • In-memory size limitations
  • Impacts of SSDs and other non-volatile memory

Attend What Makes A Database System ‘In-Memory’? and come away with ideas and techniques for building better, faster software! Register now.
