The Heimdall Data is a software platform for application developers, database administrators, and infrastructure owners. Whether on-premise or cloud, Heimdall helps organizations deliver faster, more reliable, and secure content generation.

Heimdall Architecture

Today’s SQL performance solutions do not solve the data latency incurred by application-database round trips. Caching on the database improves scale, but does not remove the latency. Heimdall Data is sidecar Database Proxy installed across application instances. This distributed model results in optimal performance and predictive scale.

With Heimdall caching, queries that would have gone to the database are now cached locally on the application tier. You choose the cache of choice (e.g. Amazon Elasticache, Redis, Pivotal Gemfire, Hazelcast) and Heimdall determines which queries to cache and invalidate. Best of all, caching does not require writing a single line of code.
