VoltDB Overview

Building and delivering applications today is hard. Data is coming in fast, and from many sources. What differentiates you from your competition is the speed and intelligence with which you use data to make decisions. But unrelenting data feeds and millisecond latency requirements make it impossible for traditional approaches to rise to the occasion.

Not only does data need to be accurately handled thousands of times a second, but fast in-memory analytics are now table stakes. Sure, operational work is classic transaction processing, but it is also managing sensor data, network packets, call records or click streams. Events and interactions are now part of the corporate data strategy and managing them, optimizing them and acting on them in real time is the challenge.

VoltDB is a database specifically designed for this work. And it is more than up for the challenge. Just ask our customers who use VoltDB to power…

  • Openet’s billing solutions that serve the world’s largest telco providers
  • Airpush’s mobile ad network, the second largest serving Android devices
  • HP‘s real-time personalization services for its Subscriber, Network and Application services
  • Alcatel-Lucent’s IPTV products with interactive experience and rich dynamic content in milliseconds
