BOSTON and BEDFORD, Mass., Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VoltDB, the world's fastest high-velocity database today announced that it has entered into a VAR agreement with Q4 Systems Corporation (OTCQB:QFOR), a leading Social Media, Mobility, Analytics and Cloud Computing (SMAC) solutions provider offering a SaaS based platform for Healthcare and Retail industry verticals.
Q4 Systems selected VoltDB’s in-memory database both for its high-speed data ingestion capabilities and its purpose-built architecture for high-velocity Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) applications. In particular, Q4 needed to accommodate the inventory data needs of retail customers facing new velocity challenges as they increasingly embrace mobile technology. VoltDB will support Q4’s RetailSphere and Loss Prevention services, all of which serve retailers with brick-and-mortar and web operations.
VoltDB will also support Q4 Systems’ solutions and services for investment banking, business intelligence and structured finance. Financial services customers will benefit from VoltDB’s real-time visibility and data decisioning capabilities.
“As we continue to innovate SMAC solutions to deploy through our cloud-based Health Exchanges and RetailSphere platforms, we are addressing significant performance challenges facing our customers that call for the ability to make fast decisions based on large, rapidly changing data sets.” said Rajkumar Bala, Senior Architect of Q4 Systems. “Following an exhaustive search for the most powerful and scalable database to help us address these challenges, it became clear that VoltDB offered the best capabilities to support our existing solutions and build new ones to meet those goals.”
"The performance demands of Quadrant 4's SaaS offerings across multiple verticals made VoltDB a great fit," said Bruce Reading, President & CEO for VoltDB. "The scalability challenges faced by Quadrant 4 driven by the demands of mobile functionality across all of their key market segments was the driving factor for the selection of VoltDB."
VoltDB provides a fully durable, in-memory relational database that combines high-velocity data ingestion and real-time data analytics and decisioning to enable organizations to unleash a new generation of big data applications that deliver unprecedented business value. Organizations in markets ranging from financial services and Web media, to public utilities and national defense, use VoltDB to narrow the "ingestion-to-decision" gap from minutes, or even hours, to milliseconds. Founded by database legend Dr. Michael Stonebraker, VoltDB is privately held with offices in Bedford, Mass. and Santa Clara, Calif.
