STOCKHOLM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Starcounter today released the world’s fastest database. Based on the company’s patent-pending VMDBMS technology, which is more than 100 times faster than traditional databases and 10 times faster than high performance databases, the new in-memory database is ideal for highly transactional large-scale and real-time applications. It can handle millions of users, integrate with applications to increase performance, and guarantee consistency by processing millions of ACID-compliant database transactions per second while managing up to a terabyte of updatable data on a single server.
The Starcounter database is built for today’s real-time systems including online stores, location-based services and banking applications, offering the performance needed to create better software applications and powerful Internet services of the future. By physically storing data in only one place and enabling applications to access data in the database as fast as its internal temporary data, the database’s underlying VMDBMS technology eliminates costly data transfers between the application and database. It also eliminates the need for information to be fragmented across multiple locations and pieced back together, ultimately providing the flexibility and scalability needed for today’s large-scale, real-time applications.
“There is clear ongoing interest in alternative database technologies designed to solve specific problems, and real-time performance is one of those areas of opportunity,” commented Matthew Aslett, research manager, data management and analytics, 451 Research. “Starcounter offers a new approach to meet the needs of real-time operational applications by providing both high performance and ACID transactions.”
“After years of testing and production, we are very excited to deliver our database which is substantially faster than other in-memory high performance databases available today,” said Asa Holmstrom, CEO of Starcounter. “We can support the next new rival in ERP, e-commerce, business software, telecom, social networks, online applications and games by providing them with the only high performance and truly consistent database they need to harness live and updatable data.”
