VoltDB Overview

Building and delivering big data applications today is hard.  Data is not only doubling every year, but it’s also coming in faster than ever before. Staying ahead of the competition depends on your ability to act on fast data in real time. But unrelenting data feeds and millisecond latency requirements make it impossible for traditional approaches to rise to the occasion.

Organizations often try to solve the challenge of making Big Data Fast by cobbling together a mix of databases, data warehouses, analytics and streaming engines. But these legacy solutions were never built to scale for the volume or the rate of today’s big data-fast data challenge.

VoltDB is the only solution architected specifically to meet the requirements of Fast Data. And it is more than up for the challenge. Just ask our customers who use VoltDB to power…
