In-Memory Database key innovations:
In-Memory Databases (IMDB) store their data in-memory as opposed to traditional Database Management Systems that utilize disk as their primary storage mechanism. By utilizing system memory rather than spinning disk or flash devices, IMDBs are typically orders of magnitude faster than traditional DBMS systems.
Simple ⋅ Powerful ⋅ Fast
Keeping data in memory is not the only reason why IMDBs generally perform faster than disk-based databases. The main reason for performance difference is in the actual architecture. IMDBs are specifically designed with memory-first-disk-second architecture where memory is utilized as a primary storage and disk is secondary storage.
