Imagine a world where you only need one database to meet your transactional requirements, while still delivering on the promise of fast analytics. With TiDB, you don’t need to imagine a database like this; instead, you get to use a database like this.
TiDB combines a row store for speedy transaction processing with a column store for the analytics performance you need. When you write data to TiDB, it can be stored in both formats so that you have true real-time analytics without the need of a cumbersome ETL process.
This white paper describes a typical Hybrid Transactional and Analytical Processing (HTAP) environment in TiDB and discusses:
- The benefits of a single source of truth for your data
- How TiDB meets the need for real-time analytics
- How the query optimizer determines the best solution path for each query
- What this means for you, your database environment, and your database budget
If you are seeking a single source of truth for your data, this white paper delivers a solution that can work for you.
