Scalability and Performance for IoT Big Data and Analytics

eXtremeDB logo

Powerful data management features for professional developers.

The eXtremeDB database system accelerates high performance desktop, workstation and server-based applications with a flexible architecture for elastic scalability, and features designed to provide the fastest time series analytics.

Statistical Analysis

eXtremeDB for HPC comes with a library of more than 100 functions for performing statistical analysis on time series data, such as grand, group, grid and window averages to name a few.

An In-Memory and Persistent DBMS

eXtremeDB was originally designed and optimized to be an in-memory database system (IMDS) and this distinction allows for improved performance.  Learn why here.

The eXtremeDB hybrid database system offers remarkable flexibility.

CPU cache-optimized (pipelined) analytics

Pipelining causes the output of one function to become the input to the next function. Interim results within a pipeline are passed between functions within the CPU cache (not materialized). CPU cache is 3X – 4X faster than RAM. The pipelining technique gives eXtremeDB record-breaking speed.  Learn more.

Columnar data layout

eXtremeDB offers support for columnar data layout, which improves efficiency in handling time-series data.  System designers can combine a columnar layout with traditional rows in a single database design, to optimize run-time efficiency.


Sharding is partitioning a logical database into multiple physical databases, which might then be distributed across multiple nodes in a cluster.  Learn more.

Distributed Query Processing

Distributes a query to each shard of a partitioned database, to leverage the power of multiple cores and CPUs in executing the query.  Learn more.

Rapid prototyping and development

Program in Python to rapidly develop a concept. Leverage the power and efficiency of LUA to implement server-side User Defined Functions. Learn more.

High Availability

Use High Availability to create a hot standby for every database shard. In the event of a failure of the primary server for that shard, eXtremeDB will failover to the standby to maintain availability of the system.  Learn more.


Multi-Version Concurrency Control dramatically improves scalability and performance, while simplifying application logic by eliminating the need for code to manage pessimistic database locking.  Learn more.

  • Learn about our speed records in independently audited benchmark studies


“We determined that integrating a proven data management solution will shorten development and testing, cutting overall development costs. Our experience with eXtremeDB has borne out this prediction”

– Customer since 2003


“It was more than twice as fast as the second-place database.”


“In addition to speed and the ability to process large quantities of data, clients also require richer data sets for golden price generation, which is what  eXtremeDB will help us do outstandingly well.”


“After a stringent review process, we selected eXtremeDB because of its scalability; outstanding performance due to its sharding capability; and our confidence in McObject’s ability to offer a solid support team.”


“Reliability is absolutely critical to our customers, which was one of the key reasons for choosing McObject’s eXtremeDB.”


eXtremeDB Financial Edition’s performance and fault-tolerance make it a natural fit for database processing in the enhanced order-execution system.”

BAE Systems

“Among other benefits, eXtremeDB makes it simple to configure databases and tables using the product’s schema compiler.”


eXtremeDB helped cut 18 programmer months from the development cycle.”

Schneider Electric

“In addition to its positive impact on our business, eXtremeDB is well-designed to solve the unique development challenges of data management for real-time embedded software.”


“Leveraging a tightly integrated database engine like McObject’s commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) eXtremeDB offers reliability, development efficiency, and the flexibility to cost-effectively add on new application features in the future.”

Dalian Commodity Exchange

eXtremeDB-64 contributes significantly to trading platform robustness, with a proven database transaction mechanism that is optimized for high throughput.”

Transaction Network Services

“Our evaluation determined that eXtremeDB outperforms other in-memory database systems, meeting [our] current needs and, just as importantly, accommodating future growth.”

eXtremeDB was made for the IoT


The volume and velocity of data collected by IoT systems has the potential to surpass previous systems by a wide margin. Developers require a database system with an architecture that can keep up in both dimensions:

Scale vertically, i.e. “scale up” with the volume of data

Scale horizontally, i.e. “scale out” to bring more processing power to bear and maintain system responsiveness

Scale data elastically vertically or horizontally

Each node in a distributed eXtremeDB database can be arbitrarily large. Published & audited benchmarks demonstrate eXtremeDB setting performance and latency (jitter) records with 4 terabyte to 31 terabyte database, and up to 72 shards (nodes).

“We never stop researching and developing new and innovative ways to keep eXtremeDB – and thus our customers – ahead of the pack.”
