Electron has built SQL-based RDBMS Technology Innovations into Electron 4G.
Scale-Out OLTP Architecture
ElectronDB supports a scale-out architecture, first in the OLTP market that promotes the use of commodity hardware and propels cloud computing with new scalability options for customers.
ElectronDB employs a patented grouping logic, which is revolutionary from the way the rest of the databases handle tasks.
A rich set of indexes to choose for updates, selects and sequences. Join indexes speed up database joins. Compressed index format reduces disc footprint, I/O and RAM usage.
Shared-Nothing Architecture For OLTP
Most current OLTP systems have shared-everything architecture, causing scalability to be hampered beyond a certain point. This is because sharing introduces locking. Shared-nothing architecture decides upfront on the state of the data and the kind of query that can be executed on that node, reducing, locking and increasing scalability.
Asynchronous Two-Phase Commit Logic
Modification of two-phase commit protocol enables faster distributed databases.
Designed for ccNuma-based multi-processor server architecture, Electron improves performance and scalability wherever possible, while working seamlessly with SMP architecture-based servers.
'n'SAFETY No-Impact Failovers
ElectronDB sports an 'n'Safety, No-impact silent failover mechanism, where the database system configured in a cluster won't go down -- even after n-1 systems crash simultaneously.
Cache-conscious algorithms make the database race at CPU speed, significantly reducing I/O resource overhead and lag time.
Fewer Context Switches
ElectronDB's patented design includes, a revolutionary, asynchronous task handling mechanism, (with no creation or destruction of threads or processes), resulting in too-few context switches that improve CPU efficiency
