How ClustrixDB scales reads and writes

October 17, 2018

Scaling out a SQL RDBMS while maintaining ACID guarantees in realtime is a very large challenge. Most scaling DBMS solutions relinquish one or many realtime transactionality requirements. ClustrixDB achieves near-linear scaling of both write and read queries with full ACID compliance, by a combination of ‘bringing the query to the data’ and automatically distributing the data across all nodes in the cluster. Read this white paper for more information including how ClustrixDB leverages a Cascades Planner, MVCC, 2 Phase Locking, and the Paxos consensus protocol.
