Performance needs of many database applications dictate that the entire database be stored in main memory. The Dalí system is a main memory storage manager designed to provide the persistence, availability and safety guarantees one typically expects from a disk-resident database, while at the same time providing very high performance by virtue of being tuned to support in-memory data. User processes map the entire database into their address space and access data directly, thus avoiding expensive remote procedure calls and buffer manager interactions typical of accesses in disk-resident commercial systems available today.
