Bingham Farms, Michigan (PRWEB) February 26, 2015
A record breaking speed of 8 million transactions per minute has been achieved by Scientel’s Gensonix Enterprise NoSQL DB running on a Single Node MDWA2900 system. The higher speed reported by Scientel is attributed to the efficiency and overall unique performance advantages rendered by its Gensonix Enterprise NoSQL DB. Additionally, the new Model 2900 Medium Data Warehouse Appliance (MDWA) technology – an extension of Scientel’s successful Large Data Warehouse Appliance (LDWA) platform – helped achieve this high increase in performance. Scientel’s DWA technology can replace multiple racks full of “refrigerator style” servers which are usually required to reach such high performance levels.
This transaction speed is achieved for a benchmark test run by Scientel and is comprised of 1 transaction record with 1 index per record.
“The efficiency of the Gensonix Enterprise NoSQL DB combined with the latest hardware technology makes it possible for us to achieve higher performance levels at an increasing pace, says Norman T. Kutemperor, CTO. Gensonix is a “polymorphic” DB with multi-modeling capabilities supported with its NSQL©® language. Multi-modeling includes the ability of utilizing different data models such as relational, network, column, document, etc., for a single application within the same DB.
When an application developed in NSQL is rendered on these servers, the actual benefits realized are even higher. This is mainly due to the fact that ordinary applications cannot take advantage of advanced polymorphic types of multi-modeling techniques and the real results are even much beyond the transaction speed indicated here.
One of the other benefits of multi-modeling includes far reduced storage requirements when compared with other solutions. For example, it has been shown that a column storage format decreased storage requirements by a factor of 40% when compared with a typical SQL format. In Gensonix, when a column model is combined with Relational and Network models, the efficiency increases further, resulting in far less storage requirements while increasing the processing efficiency. Such techniques allow Gensonix to reach much higher levels of performance when compared to conventional SQL type systems.
In achieving this 8 million TPM record, Gensonix Enterprise NoSQL DB had to be integrated with the latest DWA hardware technology from Scientel. The MDWA2900 features the latest in advanced hardware. It utilizes the Intel Xeon 6-core processor (E5-2620V3) operating at 2.4GHz and is configured with 16 GB of DDR4 SDRAM operating at 2133 MHz. The system also utilizes high speed interconnect switches operating at up to 40GBps. When integrated with the inherent blazing speed of the Gensonix Enterprise Polymorphic NoSQL DB system, the MDWA2900 delivers an astounding 8 million transactions per minute (with no replication; 6 MTPM with replication) at relatively low system cost and high reliability. The standard configuration utilizes a 128GB SSD for the operating system while the data storage is on a high speed 480GB SSD.
The MDWA2900 system is one of the smallest form factor high performance computing (HPC) configurations used to achieve record-breaking TPM levels. A single node system is no bigger than a single tower and the MDWA2900 system incorporates an identical tower configured in an identical fashion. The identical node is a fully operating companion node providing 100% active replication of the DB and can function on its own in case of a primary node failure.
About Scientel Information Technology, Inc.
Scientel Information Technology, Inc. is a U.S.-based, international, systems technology company, operational since 1977. Scientel also designs/produces highly optimized high end servers, which can be bundled with its "GENSONIX® ENTERPRISE" DBMS software, as a single-source supplier of complete systems for Big Data environments. Scientel also customizes hardware and software for specific applications resulting in higher performance.
Scientel's specialty is advanced NoSQL DBMS design and applications/systems integration for advanced business processes. This includes applications for Big Data, commercial intranets, Supply Chain management, IT consulting, support, etc., along with “beyond mainframe-level” Large Data Warehouse Appliance hardware/systems.
GENSONIX® allows very user-friendly data manipulation capabilities found in standard, SQL-based, database management systems, but it goes beyond. It is truly an "ALL-in-One SQL" -- an “All Data Management System” in the form of an ultra-flexible, NoSQL DBMS of perfectly general capabilities and application potentials. It can also function in concert with mainline SQL systems to efficiently handle both structured and unstructured data as a large data warehouse repository. However, it can handle heavy database loads by itself with the aid of the GENSONIX® NSQL©™ query/procedural language. GENSONIX® supports both telnet as well as http interfaces. GENSONIX® is capable of handling trillions of rows/transactions for billions of customers, which is a huge advantage in “truly Big Data” structured applications.
Business customers can take advantage of Scientel’s capabilities in advanced Business Intelligence and Data Analytics to grow their business by handling Big Data more cost-effectively and with greater insights to remain competitive. Scientific, government, and similar organizations can use these capabilities to efficiently process Big Data, instead of being swamped by it. And, Scientel’s Enterprise Content Management & Search solutions can vastly simplify storage, access, and management of any kind of digitized data for any size organization.
