The Steel Maker, POSCO Opted for Altibase in-Memory Database; its Database Related TCO Decreased by 60%




POSCO, the world’s largest steelmaker had opted for Altibase in-memory database over Oracle to get real-time data from its blast furnaces. Due to this, POSCO’s total cost of ownership reduced by 60 percent. The South-Korean steel maker company went for Altibase to upgrade its IT infrastructure for its aging blast furnaces.

The step was taken by POSCO to get a database to detect any flaws in the inner linings of blast furnaces with the help of analyzing a real-time database. Oracle, Oracle TimesTen, and Altibase were the options available for POSCO to choose one. The company rejected both Oracle and Oracle TimesTen after conducting a series of BMTs due to cost issues. Altibase was selected after taking into consideration its performance, high reliability and a reasonable cost of its service.

POSCO’s free utility, Migration Center helped Altibase to shift its data from different data objects from Oracle in a convenient way. Altibase’s ODBC/JDBC drivers facilitated the integration with various other applications. Due to Altibase’s unique parallel receiver apply technique helped to improve the easy replication of data.

There are several other factors which prompted POSCO to choose Altibase than other options. All-in-one hybrid technology of Altibase was the one reason for the company to go for Altibase. This facilitated the storage and manipulation of data in the main memory only which reduced the total cost of ownership as it prevents the need for POSCO to buy an in-memory and a disk-resident database separately. Altibase, being an open-source helped to reduce the costs of a database for POSCO significantly.
