H-Store is an experimental main-memory, parallel database management system that is optimized for on-line transaction processing (OLTP) applications. It is a highly distributed, row-store-based relational database that runs on a cluster on shared-nothing, main memory executor nodes.

More information and documentation is available at:

Supported Platforms

H-Store is known to work on the following platforms. Please note that it will not compile on 32-bit systems.

  • Ubuntu Linux 9.10+ (64-bit)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5 (64-bit)
  • Mac OS X 10.6+ (64-bit)


Quick Start

  1. First build the entire distribution:

     ant build
  2. Next make the project jar file for the target benchmark. H-Store includes several benchmarks that are built-in and ready to execute. A project jar contains all the of stored procedures and statements for the target benchmark, as well as the cluster configuration for the database system.

     export HSTORE_BENCHMARK=tm1
     ant hstore-prepare -Dproject=$HSTORE_BENCHMARK
  3. You can now execute the benchmark locally on your machine with two partitions

     ant hstore-benchmark -Dproject=$HSTORE_BENCHMARK
