The original VoltDB academic papers leverage determinism to achieve high performance. John's talk at MIT's New England Database Day explores determinism in detail and provides specific insight into the following areas:
Watch VoltDB's Dr. Michael Stonebraker of MIT, UC Berkeley, and Ingres and Postgres fame present the founding principles of solving modern data-velocity problems. Adding to the lessons learned throughout Dr. Stonebraker's 40-year career in database research are VoltDB's own VP of Market Strategy, Mark Hydar and Co-founder, Scott Jarr.Watch Now Stonebraker Live! 2013 - Cambridge
Watch VoltDB's Dr. Michael Stonebraker of MIT, UC Berkeley, and Ingres and Postgres fame present the founding principles of solving modern data-velocity problems: "Data is growing faster than hard drives," "Move the computation to the data, never move the data to the computation," "Bet on main memory because there's no other way to go fast," and "Run transactions to completion, and you eliminate locking and multithreading," are central to his beliefs.Watch Now Building Fast, Scalable Database Applications The Easy Way - VoltDB

Mike Stonebraker on NewSQL vs NoSQL for New OLTP at the NoSQLNow! Conference
View Mike Stonebraker's presentation at the NoSQLNow! Conference in August 2011. This talk discusses how historically, enterprises used traditional RDBMs for online transaction processing (OLTP) applications; and we affectionately call these systems OldSQL, because they are largely legacy code bases, originally written decades ago. New OLTP applications have more extreme performance requirements than the Old OLTP applications of yesteryears.
This talk contrasts two alternatives to OldSQL in this area:
Mike Stonebraker Talks About Big Data, the Cloud, and the Market Advantage of Open Source
Tune in to the interview between David Vellante (DV) and Professor Mike Stonebraker (MS) of MIT at the Mass Technology Leadership Council event February 17, 2011. on the Siliconangle Cube. Their discussion focused on big data and was conducted earlier in February 2011 after a panel discussion. To read the full transcript visit http://Wikibon.org
Monitoring Database Health with the VoltDB Enterprise Manager
Identifying problems early is key to maintaining a stable database environment. In this short video, learn how to monitor the health of your database with the VoltDB Enterprise Manager and how the durability features of VoltDB can help you both detect and recover from hardware errors.
Saving and Restoring Snapshots with the VoltDB Enterprise Manager
Snapshots let you save the contents of a database to disk. Whether you need to schedule an automated snapshot or take one manually, this video explains the steps for saving and restoring snapshots using the VoltDB Enterprise Manager.
Defining and Deploying Databases Using the VoltDB Enterprise Manager
Andrew Gent from VoltDB Engineering provides a short demonstration of how to define and deploy databases using the VoltDB Enterprise Manager 1.3. The video walks you through the process from start to finish, demonstrating how easy it is to set up a database cluster using the Enterprise Manager.
FLOSS Weekly Episode 149: VoltDB
FLOSS Weekly provides interviews with prominent evangelists and developers in the Free, Libre, and Open Source Software movement. In Episode 149, FLOSS Weekly's Randall Schwartz and Dan Lynch interview VoltDB's John Hugg about technology, licensing and open source community development. The interview extensively explores VoltDB's ability to handle massive data throughput requirements, and focuses on early use cases and customer applications.
GameDuell's Ralf Neeb: Real-/Neartime analysis with Hadoop & VoltDB
Analyzing big data with Hadoop has become a de facto standard procedure in the recent years. When it comes to real-/neartime analysis, there are still new challenges arising, e.g. processing many small data (events) and providing the result in near time without having the need for high-end storage infrastructure.
Navigating the Database Universe
The design decisions you make today will have a huge performance impact down the line. For databases, until recently, the choice was easy. Essentially, you had one option: the RDBMS. Today, there's a new universe of databases being thrown into production - and some not always to the greatest success. How do you make the right choice for your next application? Database pioneer Dr. Michael Stonebraker and VoltDB co-founder Scott Jarr have some thoughts.
