From the overview:

InfiniSQL is a relational database management system (RDBMS) composed entirely from the ground up. InfiniSQL’s goals are:

  • Horizontal Scalability
  • Continuous Availability
  • High Throughput
  • Low Latency
  • High Performance For Complex, Multi-Host Transactions
  • Ubiquity

InfiniSQL has been tested to support over 500,000 complex transactions per second with over 100,000 simultaneous connections. This was on a cluster of only 12 single socket x86-64 servers. Subscribed hardware in this environment was exhausted from this effort–so the true upper limits of capacity are unknown. InfiniSQL’s scalability across multiple nodes appears to be limitless!

From what I read on the website, InfiniSQL operates entirely in memory and so has not hit the I/O barrier to storage.

Very much at alpha stage of development but the “500,000 complex transactions per second” is enough to make it worth watching.
