The in-memory technology of Altibase Hybrid Database (HDB) supports high speeds and large volumes, translating into advantages in terms of processing in-memory and on-disk reads/writes. In order to enable the broad use of HDB, Altibase needed a processor capable of addressing large amounts of memory and easing the constraints of an in-memory database management
system (DBMS). Altibase chose the In...tel® Xeon® processor E7 v2 family to take advantage of large memory capacity for in-memory processing and Intel® Solid-State Drives (Intel® SSDs) for highperformance, on-disk database access. The maximum Altibase in-memory capacity increased up to 12 TB with an 8-socket Intel Xeon processor E7 v2 family-based platform, and the in-memory data processing performance of Altibase HDB running on the platform improved by 1.94 times compared to the previous-generation Intel Xeon processor E7 family-based platform. As a result, Altibase plans to use the Intel Xeon processor E7 v2 family in other applications that utilize in-memory computing, particularly in the area of ultrahigh-speed data stream analysis.
