A High Performance Memory Database for Web Application Caches

Abstract—This paper presents the architecture and
characteristics of a memory database intended to be used as a
cache engine for web applications. Primary goals of this database

several CPU cores (four and more). A secondary goal is the
support for simple metadata structures associated with cached

some data structures and algorithms normally associated with
this field of computing needed to be adapted to the new
