Funding Fuels VoltDB’s Innovation and Growth

We recently announced that we’ve secured $8 million in funding. The industry was abuzz – you may have seen the stories in the Boston Globe, Gigaom or even the Wall Street Journal.

But what does it mean for you?

It means more innovation. An even better product. More of us working to help you build a faster, smarter business.

We’re excited and we hope you are, too. We couldn’t have gotten to where we are without you, so thank you.
  Stonebraker Says: Traditional RDBMS Wisdom is All Wrong

When Mike Stonebraker speaks, you’re guaranteed a frank, honest perspective on what works and what doesn’t.

On April 22nd, in the first of a series of “Stonebraker Says” webcasts, Mike will take a critical look at the conventional wisdom behind OLTP RDBMSs – why it’s outdated and renders most major commercial DBMS offerings obsolete – and then present the case for modern in-memory architecture.
