IoT: Implications on Database Management

 Presented by McObject CEO and Co-founder, Steve Graves.

“Run length encoding can reduce data storage requirements by up to 90% and increase analytics speed up to 21%.”

“Local processing can reduce the data transport and upstream storage requirements by up to 99%.”

What we covered

What used to be “embedded systems” are now more popularly known as IoT edge devices and gateways. And, while they may retain many of the same characteristics of embedded systems of times past, there are also differences. This presentation explored those old and new characteristics and their implications on DBMSs.  Our goal is to equip developers with knowledge they will need when considering database system alternatives.

  • Where the edge is depends on who you ask
  • Old verses new characteristics of IoT DBMS requirements
    o Connectivity
    o Security
    o Time series data
    o Machine Learning

We explored what works and pitfalls to avoid, and invited project specific questions after the presentation.


We invite you to review additional research, and learn more about eXtremeDB

We are a dedicated group of specialists and our only focus is database management systems.  See our Related Resources below for our other IoT database Webinars, journal articles and white papers about embedded database management.

White paper: Distributed Database Systems and Edge/Fog/Cloud Computing

A distributed database system is one in which the data belonging to a single logical database is distributed to two or more physical databases. Beyond that simple definition, there are a confusing number of possibilities for when, how, and why the data is distributed. Some are applicable to edge and/or fog computing, some others are applicable to fog and/or cloud  computing, and some are applicable across the entire spectrum of edge, fog and cloud computing.

White paper:  Will the Real IMDS Please Stand Up?

In-memory database systems (IMDSs) have changed the software landscape, enabling “smarter” embedded applications and sparking mergers and acquisitions involving the largest technology companies. But IMDSs’ popularity has sparked a flurry of products falsely claiming to be in-memory database systems. Understanding the distinction is critical to determining the performance, cost and ultimately the success or failure of a solution. This white paper examines specific products, seeking to answer the question, “is it really an in-memory database system?”
