Trying to manually shard an RDBMS or scale out a NoSQL DB is so last year. There is a better way.

Oracle TimesTen Velocity Scale In-Memory Database

At Oracle, we used the following recipe to create the world's fastest OLTP DB:

  • Use the lowest latency SQL RDBMS as a building block (TimesTen In-Memory Database)
  • Use many instances of TimesTen in a scale out, shared nothing architecture
  • Enhance the TimesTen SQL so that the applications see a single database image
  • Enable high availability via K-Safety
  • Use ACID transactions so that your data is always consistent
  • Enable centralized monitoring and management to make devops life simpler 
  • Enable existing applications to work without re-writing (keep your schemas, PK, FK, SQL and SQL APIs)
  • Give it a cool name (Velocity Scale)

The result looks like this:

Single System Image In-Memory Database
