Splice Machine: Power OLTP Applications in Real-Time —the Only Hadoop RDBMS

At a Glance
Splice Machine offers companies a high-performance, massively scalable database for applications that does not require companies to compromise SQL support, secondary indexes, joins, and transactions

Scale Out, Not Up

Facing increased data growth and cost pressures, scale-out technology has become very popular as more businesses become frustrated with their costly scale-up RDBMSs. With Hadoop emerging as the de facto distributed file system, a Hadoop RDBMS is a natural choice to replace traditional relational databases, which struggle with cost and scaling issues.

Designed to meet the needs of real-time, data-driven businesses, Splice Machine is the only Hadoop RDBMS. Splice Machine offers an ANSI-SQL database with support for Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation and Durability (ACID) transactions on the distributed computing infrastructure of MapR. Like Oracle and MySQL, Splice Machine is an operational database that can handle OLTP or online analytical processing (OLAP) workloads, while scaling out cost-effectively from terabytes to petabytes on inexpensive commodity servers.

Splice Machine and MapR: The Best of All Worlds

Splice Machine, a technology partner with MapR, chose HBase and Hadoop as its scale-out architecture because of their proven auto-sharding, replication, and failover technology. This partnership now allows businesses the best of all worlds: a standard SQL database, the proven scale-out of Hadoop, and the ability to leverage current staff, operations, and applications without specialized hardware or significant application rewrites.

Become a Real-Time, Data-Driven Business with Splice Machine and MapR

Leapfrog the Competition with Splice Machine and MapR
Splice Machine with MapR is uniquely qualified to power data-driven businesses that can harness real-time insights to take better actions. Companies using Splice Machine and MapR can leapfrog their competition with these major benefits:

Benefit from Cost-Effective Scaling, Real-Time Updates, and Reduced Risk

  1. Cost-Effective Scaling and Performance with Commodity Hardware Splice Machine leverages the proven auto-sharding of HBase to scale to dozens of petabytes with commodity servers. This enables Splice Machine to deliver compelling results versus traditional RDBMSs like Oracle and IBM DB2:
    • 5-10x Increase in query speeds
    • 75% reduction in TCO
    • 10-20x better price/performance
  2. Real-Time Updates with Transactional Integrity
    Database transactions ensure that real-time updates can be reliably executed without data loss or corruption. Transactions also enable zero-downtime updates and ETL to data warehouses, as data can be updated while reports simultaneously see a consistent view of the data. Splice Machine also provides full ACID transactions across rows and tables.
  3. Reduced Risk with Safe JourneySplice Machine has designed a Safe Journey program to ease the effort and risk for companies migrating to a Splice Machine database. The Safe Journey program’s proven methodology includes:
    • Guidance on the right workloads to migrate
    • Risk-mitigation best practices
    • Commercial tools that automate most PL/SQL conversion processes
