	%X Main Memory Database systems (MMDB) store their
data in main physical memory and provide very high-speed access.
Conventional database systems are optimized for the particular
characteristics of disk storage mechanisms. Memory resident
systems, on the other hand, use different optimizations to structure
and organize data, as well as to make it reliable.
This paper provides a brief overview on MMDBs and one of the
memory resident systems named FastDB and compares the
processing time of this system with a typical disc resident database
based on the results of the implementation of TPC benchmarks
environment on both.
