VoltDB Eases Fast Data App Development
The new 5.0 release of the VoltDB in-memory database simplifies fast data application development.Responding to the growing demand for real-time data, VoltDB announced Version 5.0 of its in-memory, scale-out operational database. The new release delivers increased support for the Hadoop ecosystem, expanded SQL support and a new management center. VoltDB 5.0 enables users to more easily create and manage fast data applications. With the Internet of Things driving the need for real time data, an increasing number of organizations are looking to capture and process fast data to create interactive and engaging applications. Indeed, the growing demand for streaming apps and analytics combined with the increased adoption of Hadoop is driving a need for a platform that can keep up. It is difficult to build fast data applications that simultaneously extract intelligence, do real-time analytics, provide insight and take action in real time on huge volumes of streaming data. VoltDB is an in-memory, scale-out SQL database that is purpose-built to power a new generation of applications that thrive on fast, smart data. And VoltDB 5.0 is designed to simplify the development of fast data applications. "Our customers' demand for real-time, intelligent and actionable subscriber insights has never been greater," said Prateek Kapadia, CTO of Flytxt, in a statement. "With VoltDB, we are able to focus our attention on the discovery, creation and dissemination of subscriber insight, rather than its storage and update mechanisms. With its single integrated platform and rapid data ingestion and export, we remain on the cutting edge and help our customers do the same."
VoltDB officials said previously the solution for building streaming apps has been to implement the Lambda Architecture using a "DIY" or do-it-yourself solution made up of separate open source components. However, this often leads to unnecessary complexity, performance overhead and technical risk. VoltDB's purpose-built database platform delivers the performance, scale and capability to ingest, analyze and make decisions on fast, streaming data in real time.
