Terracotta Ditch the Disk White Paper

The need for taking real-time action on Big Data intelligence is driving big changes to the traditional enterprise architecture. In particular, enterprises are increasingly keeping data instantly available in ultra-fast machine memory, rather than locking it away in slow, disk-bound databases. In this paper, we explain why an architecture built around in-memory data management is the best model for achieving high performance and extremely low, predictable latency at scale. We examine why traditional, disk-based database systems are simply no longer sufficient for emerging real-time Big Data applications, and we enumerate the most important attributes of high-performance, highly available in-memory architectures.
