    A major challenge In processing the volume of data required for IoT solutions is sourcing sufficient computing power to perform before-aggregation computations. When this needs to be carried out record by record, many traditional data environments, which use disk storage to store data, are not sufficiently powerful to complete the task, or may take days to deliver results.

    An in-memory database (IMDB) is a database management system that primarily relies on main memory (RAM) for computer data storage. It can be thousands of times faster than a disk storage database and is useful for real-time analytics that need to happen very quickly. In-memory computing also has very good compression algorithms, which makes it possible to better utilise the storage space.
