Oracle Introduces TimesTen Scaleout Database for Extreme OLTP

Oracle has announced the release of the Oracle TimesTen Scaleout online transaction processing (OLTP) database that the company says is capable of massive scaleout, extreme transaction processing throughput, and ultra-low response times.

According to Oracle, TimesTen Scaleout was designed specifically to address real-time business workloads that handle a high volume of data transactions, such as real-time trading, real-time telecommunications billing, IoT, and real-time fraud detection.

Delivering extreme throughput read and write speeds, TimesTen Scaleout has achieved 144 million SQL transactions/second and 1.2 billion SQL statements/second running the Telecom Provider Throughput Benchmark (TPTBM) on commodity hardware.

Since TimesTen Scaleout is based on the mature TimesTen In-Memory Database, TimesTen Scaleout has both extensive functionality, as well as high performance, said Andrew Mendelsohn, executive vice president, Oracle Database, noting that the scaleout architecture is designed for extreme performance OLTP workloads and further extends Oracle's in-memory database technology leadership.

With a highly available architecture, Oracle TimesTen Scaleout enables multiple active copies of data that are automatically kept in sync. Queries and transactions can be initiated from, and executed on, any replica, ensuring database users always have access to data. With instant scalability, organizations can expand or shrink database instances and resources as business demands change.

Oracle TimesTen Scaleout supports parallel SQL execution, global secondary indexes, and full-featured multi-statement distributed transactions. It features Oracle Database compatible data types, languages, and APIs, including SQL and PLSQL, the Oracle Call Interface (OCI), JDBC, among others. The system also allows for multiple data distribution options to accommodate a wide variety of application requirements and provides centralized management capabilities that can be accessed via Oracle SQL Developer.
