Announcing VoltDB 4.0: Enhanced In-Memory Analytics and Online Elasticity

Wednesday, January 29, 2014 - 12:00am

The VoltDB engineering team is pleased to announce that VoltDB 4.0 is now available!

 

Bruce Reading, the VoltDB CEO is fond of saying that VoltDB contains lots of “yummy goodness”, and, while that is not a term we engineers use often, VoltDB v4.0 does indeed include a lot of new features.  The highlights of VoltDB v4.0 include:

  • Enhanced in-memory analytics capabilities with a host of new SQL support.
  • Greatly improved analytic read throughput performance.
  • Clusters can grow elastically, increasing both throughput and capacity, by adding nodes to running clusters without blocking ongoing operations.

Consider the scenario where you are building an online multi-player game platform, where users can use the platform to create their own games.  Such a platform would have the following high-level requirements:

  1. It needs to be able to process tens of thousands of write transactions, game state changes, per second.  As each player makes a “move” or “action”, that needs to be recorded.
  2. It needs to be able to query player status and ranking.
