A recent press release states, “Software AG today announced the availability of Terracotta DB, a new generation, distributed, In-Memory Database platform that delivers high-speed performance for combined operational and analytical processing. Terracotta DB can work with any application that creates new, rapidly changing data types—structured, semi-structured, unstructured and polymorphic data—as well as humongous volumes of data or scale beyond the capacity constraints of existing systems. With the explosion in growth of the Internet of Things and fast-moving streams of data, organizations will find Terracotta DB the ideal solution for managing and extracting value in real-time.”
Wolfram Jost, chief technology officer, Software AG, said, “Unlike traditional NoSQL Database platforms, Terracotta DB is in-memory, provides predictable latency at scale and can handle high-speed operational storage and analytical processing requirements on the same platform. This is a significant differentiator for enterprises wishing to leverage a data store that is a natural fit for building microservices and IoT applications for scale.”
The release goes on, “Terracotta DB is built on top of the distributed in-memory data grid—Terracotta BigMemory, which is currently used by more than 500 organizations worldwide (for example, Octo Telematics, Kiabi, CERN, and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services [CMS.gov]). In the last 12 months, Terracotta was downloaded more than 2 million times, and more recently several Terracotta customers participated in a Terracotta DB beta program at Software AG labs in July 2017 to experience the benefits first hand and provide early feedback.”
