Time is the enemy of data. Data that has enormous value the moment it is created and may have less value an hour from now and perhaps no value tomorrow. Stock traders have understood this from time immemorial – if you can identify and act on a transaction opportunity faster than anyone else, you will benefit the most.
Today, organizations of all types are trying to gain a competitive advantage or become more effective by devising new ways to identify and act on fast-moving, valuable data. This is what drives the Big Data trend – by ingesting and analyzing large volumes of a variety of data, organizations hope to be able to find and act on every single piece of data at a point of maximum value. And to date, there has been an enormous amount of frustration in this quest because these same organizations have not been able to achieve the velocity required to act on data at anything approximating the point of maximum value: real time. Their systems are simply too slow at data ingestion, analysis and decisioning.
VoltDB solves this critical velocity problem. It is an in-memory relational database that combines high-velocity data ingestion, massive scalability, and real-time analytics and decisioning to enable organizations to unleash a new generation of applications that act on data at its point of maximum value. Organizations in markets ranging from financial services and Web media, to public utilities and national defense, use VoltDB to narrow the "ingestion-to-decision" gap from minutes, or even hours, to milliseconds. That, in any line of work, is a big deal.
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.
