InfiniSQL is a massively scalable relational database system (RDBMS),
composed entirely from scratch (not built upon some other technology).
What’s the largest known cluster?
The only open source software which is remotely similar to
InfiniSQL is MySQL Cluster. I believe that InfiniSQL
scales and performs better than MySQL Cluster for many
operations, especially transactions that contain records
on multiple nodes.
Based on what? Oh:
But, I have done no direct apples to apples comparisons between InfiniSQL and MySQL Cluster
Way too much for me.

HighScalability.com hosted a guest post from the author of InfiniSQL:
Benchmarking shows that an InfiniSQL cluster can handle over 500,000 complex
transactions per second with over 100,000 simultaneous connections, all on
twelve small servers. The methods used to test are documented, and the code
is all available so that any practitioner can achieve similar results. There
are two main characteristics which make InfiniSQL extraordinary:
- It performs transactions with records on multiple nodes better than any
- It is free, open source. Not just a teaser “community” version with the good
stuff proprietary. The community version of InfiniSQL will also be the
enterprise version, when it is ready.
Tell me how fast can you find in the documentation of InfiniSQL that it is memory-only1.
