How Raima Database Manager beats SQLite
4 top challenges with SQLite and how Raima Database Manager avoids them
Challenge 1: Scalable Performance
SQLite faces performance issues as more users and/or additional hardware added to the system.
RDM has no limits
RDM does not have this issue as its performance gets better as you add better hardware and users. RDM has been optimized to scale and utilize any additional hardware added to the RDM system. Additional users also have a very stable and consistent set of performance. SQLite, by design, gives priority to a random user. This makes the performance of some users much better than others.
Challenge 3: Flash Media Lifetime
SQLite is not optimized for flash media storage.
Optimized for flash media
RDM optimizes and minimizes the number of writes to the storage medium, prolonging the lifetime of the device. This means less maintenance is needed for the medium and less replacements over the lifetime of the application. Additionally, RDM performs better on these devices due to the optimizations it has.
Challenge 2: Platform Support
SQLite does not support as many platforms as RDM does.
RDM supports nearly every hardware combination and operating system. It has been optimized to run in any environment.
Challenge 4: Development Environment Integration
SQL is not packaged with built in project files and support for all the standard development environments.
Out of the box
RDM supports Microsoft Visual Studio, XCode, Makefiles, CMake, Wind River Workbench, Green Hills MULTI, etc with prepackaged project files and development environment integrations.
Switch from SQLite to RDM for scalability and performance
RDM supports nearly the same level of SQL that SQLite does. Thus, the user would just need to export the contents of their database to a CSV, XML or SQL format, run rdm-create on their database schema file, then run rdm-import on the CSV, XML or SQL format file and the user will have an RDM equivalent to the SQLite database. From there, the user may have to port your application, but RDM supports the ODBC SQL interface, JDBC Java interface and the ADO.NET C# interface so there may not have to be substantial code changes.
