This is part 2 (of 2) of my Programming VoltDB – Easy, Flexible and Ultra-fast series. Blog post, part 1, showed how to build a VoltDB application using ad hoc queries and achieving thousands of transactions a second. It also showed how converting that logic to use VoltDB stored procedures allowed you to parallelize query execution and achieve 100,000+ transactions a second on a single node. In this blog post I’ll talk about scaling beyond 100,000 transactions per second by creating a VoltDB clustered database.

There are primarily two reasons why you
