TimesTen(tm) Performance Software (formerly DataXel Corporation)

TimesTen(tm) Performance Software is a one-year old company dedicated to delivering high performance data management software. The TimesTen(tm) system, the company's flagship product, is a main-memory data manager that supports SQL syntax and standard transaction semantics. TimesTen(tm) delivers to performance-sensitive applications an order of magnitude improvement in performance over disk-based data managers. TimesTen(tm) may be used in stand-alone mode as a replacement to custom solutions, or it may be used in conjunction with a disk-based relational DBMS to cache frequently-accessed data.

In this presentation, I will describe the architecture of the system, its main features, and key factors that have contributed to its high performance.
