VoltDB 3.0 (press release)
From the press release:
VoltDB is an in-memory relational database designed specifically to solve the big data velocity problem. Despite the deafening hype around big data, most enterprises have not been able to build applications that can ingest, analyze and act on massive volumes of data fast enough to deliver business value. VoltDB solves this problem by narrowing the “ingestion-to-decision” gap from minutes, or even hours, to milliseconds.
“With every passing second, time saps the value of data. This is why so many big data applications have not delivered business value – it simply takes too long to analyze and identify actionable information in the morass of data,” said Ryan Hubbard, CTO of Yellowhammer. “VoltDB has solved this problem for Yellowhammer. For the first time, we can ingest, analyze and decision on data in real time. This capability opens a new world of possibilities for applications that truly deliver competitive advantage.”
Purpose built for high velocity big data applications, VoltDB enables real-time visibility into the data that drives business value. With these industry first capabilities, VoltDB is making it possible for developers to create an entirely new generation of big data applications, with application functionality that could not be realized with traditional database offerings.
The Planning Guide for VoltDB is refreshing, albeit a bit brief.
VoltDB is fast, etc., but the Planning Guide makes it clear usefulness is not a given. VoltDB provides a robust foundation but you have to take advantage of it.
