Tibero is a relational database management system developed by TmaxSoft. It is one of the most widely used DBMS among companies and public sectors in South Korea. It is currently owned/managed by TmaxData, an affiliate company of TmaxSoft.
Tibero was first released in 2003 by TmaxSoft. Tibero 4 was the first version to introduce Tibero Active Cluster (TAC) for distributed database clustering, and this feature has carried onto newer versions since then. Tibero 6, its latest version as of Nov 2019, was released in 2015.
Tibero supports virtual views. It uses materialized views to optimize queries.
Tibero stores table rows in a disk block until the block's free space reaches a percentage below a configurable parameter. Large objects are stored in multiple blocks unless the parameter is configured to be sufficiently large.
Tibero stores data files on one or more non-volatile storages.
At a physical level, Tibero stores a control file that acts as a directory to keep track of all data files in the database. The data files each belong to a tablespace which refers to a specific table/index. At a logical level, data files are organized as a collection of blocks within a tablespace.
