With so much commerce driven by the Web today, any interruption in a company’s online transaction processing (OLTP) systems can mean major revenue losses and unrealized opportunities.

OLTP applications and their supporting databases need to be available all day, everyday so that businesses can capture transactions from next door, or from the other side of the world.

Many database clustering solutions require “cluster-aware” applications, meaning the software has to be hard-coded for specific physical servers. So when the business scales capacity by adding a server, code must be rewritten. As any administrator knows, touching the application code can be a time-consuming, costly, and risky proposition, presenting a real hurdle when the database has to scale quickly to support business growth or spikes in demand.

This one-page paper describes one database featuring a centralized caching and locking mechanism on the distributed platform that removes the need for apps to be cluster-aware. Read this now to learn how this database and its features can benefit your business.
