Upgrades to Calpont’s InfiniDB from MySQL
What is InfiniDB?
Column-oriented RDBMS which supports
 Data warehouses, data marts, and other business intelligence (BI)
/ analytic databases
 General purpose reporting databases
 Read-intensive segments of an overall application where
read/search/lookup portions of the application are served by an
analytic/query database and the transactional segments (e.g.
order entry, etc.) are managed by a traditional relational database

Multi Version Concurrency Control
Concurrency control method commonly used by database

Query will always see the data as it existed at the time the
query was issued.
