In-Memory Analytics: A Multi-Dimensional Study


The primary bottleneck to high-performance multidimensional analysis has been slow hard drive speed—the time it takes for data to be transferred from disk storage to random access memory (RAM). With crashing RAM prices and 64-bit addressing, in-memory architecture provides new and innovative solutions for online analytical processing (OLAP). This article looks at why and how in-memory technology transforms analytic applications for BI.

olap ilm  in-memory technology is transforming OLAP by the convergence of low-cost, high-performance hardware and resourceful ideas in software. Silicon Rocks The memory part of in-memory refers to silicon-based semiconductors that constitute the material of a computer system’s random access memory (RAM). The entire in-memory revolution is built on the simple fact that RAM is significantly faster than disks that are made from magnetic material. Access to data is direct with semiconductor-based memory, while disk Read More
