Misconceptions About Real-Time Databases
June 1999 (vol. 32 no. 6)
pp. 29-36

Increasingly, computer systems--even general-purpose systems--are requiring real-time support, so it's not surprising to hear more about real-time databases. Unfortunately, there are many misconceptions about the real-time aspects of databases. Mainstream database users who don't have any experience with real-time systems mistakenly think they are synonymous with speed. Others argue that conventional database technology can be used in real-time applications. To help bring order to the current state of confusion, the authors review nine common misconceptions about real-time databases. They also describe key research areas that need to be addressed to encourage increased activity in this challenging area.
