TimesTen is a family of real-time infrastructure software products designed for low latency, high-volume data, event and transaction management.
Unlike conventional infrastructure software, TimesTen products are optimized for deployment within the application tier.
They are used intensively in the telecom and financial markets because of their very high performance and robust reliability. They are increasingly being used more broadly for mid-tier data management, for example in e-commerce applications and service-oriented architecture (SOA) infrastructures, because of their performance, low maintenance, flexibility, and reliability.
TimesTen's core Database product uses in-memory database technology to speed access to data. Indexing, query optimization, and storage management, for example, are designed specially for in-memory data access. The result is high throughput and low, predictable response times, even on commodity hardware.
