Terabyte-Plus In-Memory Database System (IMDS) Benchmark Brief
(4-page synopsis - no registration required)

In-memory database systems (IMDSs) hold out the promise of breakthrough performance for time-sensitive, data-intensive tasks. Yet IMDSs’ compatibility with very large databases (VLDBs) has been largely uncharted. This benchmark analysis fills the information gap and pushes the boundaries of IMDS size and performance. Using McObject’s 64-bit eXtremeDB-64, the application creates a 1.17 Terabyte, 15.54 billion row database on a 160-core Linux-based SGI® Altix® 4700 server. It measures time required for database provisioning, backup and restore. In SELECT, JOIN and SUBQUERY tests, benchmark results range as high as 87.78 million query transactions per second. The report also examines efficiency in utilizing all of the test bed system’s 160 processors. The full report includes complete database schema, relevant application source code and additional analysis.
