OceanBase Database is a distributed relational database. It is developed entirely by Ant Group. OceanBase Database is built on a common server cluster. Based on the Paxos protocol and its distributed structure, OceanBase Database provides high availability and linear scalability. OceanBase Database is not dependent on specific hardware architectures.

Key features

  • Transparent Scalability

    An OceanBase cluster can be scaled out to 1,500 nodes transparently, handling petabytes of data and a trillion rows of records.

  • Ultra-fast Performance

    The only distributed database that has refreshed both TPC-C record, at 707 million tmpC, and TPC-H record, at 15.26 million QphH @30000GB.

  • Real-time Operational Analytics

    A unified system for both transactional and real-time operational analytics workloads.

  • Continuous Availability

    OceanBase Database adopts Paxos Consensus algorithm to achieve Zero RPO and less than 8 seconds of RTO. Supports intra-city/remote disaster recovery, enabling multi-activity in multiple locations and zero data loss.

  • MySQL Compatible

    OceanBase Database is highly compatible with MySQL, which ensures that zero or few modification is needed for migration.

  • Cost Effeciency

    The cutting-edge compression technology saves 70%-90% of storage costs without compromising performance. The multi-tenancy architecture achieves higher resource utilization.
