CSQL: Yet another in-memory DBMS for caching

A few of you care about obscure in-memory DBMS products.  Well, I was just e-mailed about another one, apparently called CSQL or CSQLcache. As of now, CSQL has a SourceForge website, a Wikipedia entry, and a blog.

One interesting thing on that blog is a taxonomy of caches — Level 1 cache, Level 2 cache, RAM, disk, etc., with some approximate figures for lookup times.  Edit: However, Kevin Closson emailed me to say it’s way out of date. Stay tuned to his blog for more on the subject.

    Have you heard of Gemstone? They are apparently doing very well with some big finance sector wins… don’t see them listed anywhere.

    I have heard next to nothing about Gemstone for the past decade-plus.
