ACID – The acronym standing for the properties maintained by standard database management systems, standing for Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, and Durability.
Application design is an important component of assuring relational database performance and efficiency. When performance problems persist it may become necessary to revisit application design. But redesigning and re-coding your applications can be time-consuming and costly, so it is better to properly address good design from the outset. Design issues to examine when application performance suffers include: Type of SQL. Is the correct type of SQL (planned or unplanned, dynamic or static, embedded or stand-alone) being used for this particular application? Programming language. Is the programming language capable of achieving the required performance, and is the language environment optimized for ... Read More

As I was working on my review of DeepSQL I received an inquiry from another company claiming to have a scale-out relational database that can handle large-scale (“Cyber Monday shopping traffic”), write-heavy loads, while maintaining ACID compliance and scaling linearly with little to no latency. In other words, this company, Clustrix, had another database more scalable than Amazon Aurora for some scenarios. My response: “There seems to be a lot of that going around.” I must be getting cynical in my old age. Nevertheless, ClustrixDB turned out to be real, a MySQL-compatible transactional database that can be scaled out “hot” ... Read More
It's a well-known fact in the IT world: Change one part of the software stack, and there's a good chance you'll have to change another. For a shining example, look no further than big data. First, big data shook up the database arena, ushering in a new class of "scale out" technologies. That's the model exemplified by products like Hadoop, MongoDB, and Cassandra, where data is distributed across multiple commodity servers rather than packed into one massive one. The beauty there, of course, is the flexibility: To accommodate more petabytes, you just add another inexpensive machine or two rather than ... Read More
Feed: Allegro CL General / Technical Announcements. Author: cnorvell. AllegroCache is a high-performance, dynamic object caching database system. It allows programmers to work directly with objects as if they were in memory while in fact the object data is always stored persistently. It supports a full transaction model with long and short transactions, and meets the classic ACID requirements for a reliable and robust database. It automatically maintains referential integrity of complex data objects. AllegroCache provides 64-bit real-time data caching on the application memory to achieve very high data access throughput by applications over as large a data set as ... Read More
