Parallel In-Memory Database Reference Manual, API version 0.1

Parallel In-Memory Database (PIMD) is a key-value, client-server database system designed to exploit massively parallel, processor-in-memory environments, such as the IBM Blue Gene (BG) family of machines. It provides a set of synchronous and asynchronous data access interfaces, iterators, as well as the ability to restart from a checkpoint. This document describes the technical features, a C++ client API of PIMD, and examples of usage.
