Advanced Database Technology
InterSystems Caché powers our customers’ most mission-critical applications with the ability to store, use, and analyze transactional and historical data concurrently in whatever forms required. High-speed SQL runs consistently and seamlessly across all data models.
As throughput and data volume requirements increase, Caché maintains consistent high performance.
Caché was recognized in the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems by the research firm Gartner.
Eliminate Complexity and Enable Agile Business Innovation
InterSystems Caché takes the complexity out of application design and deployment. Several high-availability options, including an elegant approach to mirroring, endow your applications with robust reliability – but require less hardware than other vendors’ solutions. A flexible, adaptable security model with easy-to-use provisioning capabilities makes it simple to control access to resources.
With the overall simplicity of its architecture, and powerful system management tools, Caché requires fewer database administrators (DBAs) than other databases. In fact, many installations do not require a dedicated DBA at all.

Unified Multi-Model Architecture
Within Caché, data can be modeled and stored as tables, objects, or multidimensional arrays (hierarchies). Different models can seamlessly access data – without the need for performance-killing mapping between models. Built-in support for dynamic data objects (such as XML and JSON) enables easy interoperability and rapid development of Web applications.
SQL is the lingua franca for querying Caché data across all data models. Because of its efficient architecture, Caché provides inherently faster SQL performance than other database technologies. It supports traditional indexes as well as bit-map and bit-slice indexes that can be used with real-time transactional data.
InterSystems Enterprise Cache Protocol allows a network of many servers to behave as a single data store, dramatically enhancing the scalability and performance of distributed applications.
High Availability through Database Mirroring
Caché Database Mirrors do not require large investments in hardware, support, operating system licenses, or storage. In addition, Caché Database Mirrors are easy to set up and maintain, so administration costs are minimized.
Secure data-at-rest and data-in-motion while minimizing the burden on application performance.
