451 Research’s Jason Stamper Publishes Report on ClustrixDB’s 3x Performance Boost

When it comes to enterprise data, few voices are as respected as Jason Stamper of 451 Research, who has been commenting on the space for more than 2 decades, and whose work essentially identified “NewSQL” as a category. So we were very pleased when ClustrixDB was featured in a 451 report by Stamper titled “Cloud database firm Clustrix adds in-memory processing for 300% performance boost“, which highlighted ClustrixDB 8.0’s tripling of performance for:

  • in-memory bulk data ingest
  • in-memory streaming application processing
  • high-volume aggregate processing

In the report, Stamper takes a deep dive into the specs of the ClustrixDB which powers such high traffic/high concurrency sites as Rakuten.

ClustrixDB was built to scale-out for OLTP applications

Companies that rely on OLTP applications are being hit with a double whammy–they need to scale out much further, and they also need much faster data throughput. So our guiding principle in designing version 8.0 was to provide a solution that excelled in both of these areas.

We’re seeing some of the MySQL replacements adding all kinds of bells and whistles which supposedly expand use cases for their solutions, but they still haven’t addressed the fact that they can’t scale out. This is like adding all kinds of nifty features to a sedan, when what you really need is a Jeep.

With ClustrixDB, on the other hand, you’ve got an incredibly fast, scalable engine that can power your applications through the most demanding scenarios, and can scale up and down to your needs. ClustrixDB, includes:

  • The ability to store data in memory or on disk without separate coding needs
  • Ability to easily deploy in any cloud and scale across additional nodes (one node added with one click) – very important for web applications, where scalability requirements can change quickly and latency issues can lose customers
  • Full containerization for easier installation and deployment
  • Ability to encrypt data at rest with Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit encryption (a worldwide standard adopted by the US government)

We’ve always said that ClustrixDB’s ability to scale out by adding nodes while maintaining ACID compliance is unique among relational database solutions.  If your a 451 subscriber, we encourage you to read the report “Cloud database firm Clustrix adds in-memory processing for 300% performance boost” to get Jason Stamper’s perspective.  If your not yet a 451 subscriber, we encourage you to apply for a trial to view this report and the other reports 451 Research has written about ClustrixDB.
