About Intersystem Cache :
Intersystem Cache is a commercial operational database management system from intersystem, used to develop healthcare management, banking and financial, government sectors software applications.
InterSystems Cache is the world’s fastest object database. However, high performance is achieved only for transactional operations that have a significantly hierarchical nature
Cache stores data in multidimensional arrays capable of carrying hierarchically structured data. These are the same “global” data structures used by the MUMPS programming language. Cache is object oriented language, MUMPS is procedural language. All Cache code gets transpiled to MUMPS code (internally) before being compiled.InterSystems like to brand Cache as a post-relational database. In reality, it is:
- pre-relational (NOSQL)
- and post-relational
Best RealTime Example:
A famous example of Cache’s abilities is the European Space Agency’s decision to use it in one of their missions. ESA’s GAIA observatory is tasked with surveying a billion stars in our galaxy, generating an astronomical amount of data in the process. It turns out that Cache was the only DBMS capable of storing and manipulating this vast amount of data in a reasonable amount of time on hardware that is not out of this world.
