We all know the devil is in the details when it comes to technology.
Yet, our recent vFabric SQLFire performance test (a benchmark from vFabric SQLFire Best Practices Guide) is certainly worth review if you need to scale a Java app, .NET app, or other legacy data source.
- Apache Derby is used for its RDBMS components, JDBC driver, query engine, and network server.
- The partitioning technology of GemFire is used to implement horizontal partitioning features of vFabric SQLFire.
- vFabric SQLFire specifically enhances the Apache Derby components, such as the query engine, the SQL interface, data persistence, and data eviction, as well as adding additional components like SQL commands, stored procedures, system tables, functions, persistence disk stores, listeners, and locators, to operate a highly distributed and fault tolerant data management cluster.
