Re: Wat?

I don't know what Splice do but most on the in-memory crowd use a transaction log on disc in a very similar way to a conventional DB. The benefits are from fast reads, seeks, scans and locks rather than commits (although all those speed up commits too).

There's a good Stonebraker video kicking around if you want the high level or most of the vendors have a white paper.
