In-Memory OLTP Internals

  • Dmitri Korotkevitch


Hekaton is the code name of an in-memory OLTP engine introduced in SQL Server 2014. It is an Enterprise Edition feature, and it is available only in the 64-bit version of SQL Server. Hekaton is Greek for one hundred, which was the target performance improvement goal of the project. Even though this goal has yet to be achieved, it is not uncommon to see a 10X-30X system-throughput increase when in-memory OLTP is used.
