Altibase Open-Sourced its Sharding Technology to Offer High-Scalability to big Enterprises




Altibase announced about open-sourcing of sharding, a scale-out technology it offers. Paul Nahm, Altibase chairman shared that sharding has a unique design, adoptability, and cost-effectiveness, which is why it is a technological breakthrough. He said that Altibase open-sourced its sharding technology to ensure high scalability which is not the case with other relational databases.

Richard Nahm, the CMO of Altibase, added that due to the increasing data size of enterprises, it has become imperative for them to reduce the IT expenditures by ensuring high scalability. He also said that every database should provide a facility for increasing scalability in the time of big data and cloud computing.

Usually, sharding technologies requires coordinators which manage and administer the nodes between servers. However, the coordinators themselves reduce the performance of the entire system by acting as a bottleneck. But Altibase’s sharding technology solves this problem as it has been designed in such a fashion to reduce the use of coordinators to a large extent. This prevents the deterioration of a system’s performance which helps to speed-up its performance. This allows the users to add any number of servers as per the need without deteriorating the performance due to coordinators.

With the use of Altibase’s sharding technology, it has become possible for big enterprises to scale out their systems at a reasonable cost. This simply prevents the need to buy expensive and high-end servers to handle big data, said Paul Nahm. Various major enterprises have been adopting Altibase’s sharding technology and its popularity has increased significantly since Altibase made it available as an open-source technology.
