The In-Memory Revolution has Begun

This final chapter demonstrates that our vision of an in-memory database for large-scale enterprise applications is already in the process of becoming reality. The first product that implements many of the concepts of SanssouciDB is the new in-memory data management solution released by SAP at the end 2010. Companies can begin using in-memory applications today and benefit from a massive performance increase. We show how this transition can occur seamlessly and without disruption. The chapter closes with the first customer proof points by presenting application examples.
