✔ Fast Performance In-Memory, Hybrid or Persistent Storage

RDM designed from the ground up to take full advantage of memory as the storage medium. This makes it not only faster than disk-based DBMSs but also faster than competitors who added in-memory as an afterthought. Find performance benchmarks here.

✔ Platform Compatibility

Develop once, deploy anywhere. Through Raima´s file format, you can mix and match operating systems and hardware. RDM runs on a wide range of operating systems, including Windows, Linux, Apple, Android or RTOS: Windriver, GreenHills, QNX or Embedded Linux.

✔ High Availability

RDM supports local storage and data replication from an RDM database to another RDM database system, or to any other enterprise database vendor, Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server through SymmetricDS. Data can be collected on the device and replicated to an enterprise system for big data analytics and BI.

✔ Easy to Use

We focus on ease of use, providing out of the box project files for all the standard development environments. RDM is automated to manage database storage and essentially all the critical functions are self-managed and we support the OS and development languages you know.

✔ Extended Flash Media Lifetime

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.

✔ Reliability

Before the release of RDM, many tests and methods have been developed to ensure a robust and usable product. This is due to the stability and robustness requirements for a database being much more stringent than many other types of applications. Learn more about our testing.

✔ Embedded Systems and Real-time Application

Fully supports real-time system performance. RDM has been designed to meet the zero-administration requirements of an embedded application, there is no need for a database administrator. Learn more about RDM in embedded systems.

✔ Full Feature SQL Support

RDM provides developers with all the benefits SQL has to offer. Fully-featured and enhanced SQL support, including SQL PL, Stored Procedure, and Triggers. Learn more about our SQL support.  

✔ Multi-Core Scalability

Maintain performance by adding further resources as demands on the system increase. RDM supports any 32-bit and 62-bit hardware.

✔ Small Footprint

RDM is designed for small footprint environments. Developers can reduce the size to as low as 350K, depending on features and options selected.
