Like other VoltDB products, VoltOne is an in-memory database specifically designed for modern software applications that are pushed beyond their limits by high volume data sources. This new generation of data sources – real-time feeds, machine-generated data, micro-transactions, high performance content serving – requires database throughput and analytics that scale to millions of operations per second while providing 100% data consistency. VoltOne delivers all of the single-server features of VoltDB Enterprise Edition and includes VoltDB Standard Support SLAs.
"VoltDB is the clear leader in high performance database solutions; it's a perfect fit for a variety of online gaming applications," said Henning Diedrich, CEO and founder of Eonblast Corporation. "Gamers generate massive data streams and want instantaneous leaderboard updates. VoltDB can handle our most intense data throughput and analytic requirements. And now, with the price/performance advantages of VoltOne, game developers have no good reason to continue struggling with MySQL."
The VoltDB database is ideal for developers of digital ad serving, gaming, financial trading, telecommunications and other applications requiring high throughput database operations. These systems place tremendous demands on database throughput while requiring 100% data consistency and real-time analytics. VoltOne includes:
- Breakthrough single-server performance. VoltOne delivers database throughput that can easily exceed 100,000 ACID write operations per second, with average latencies below 5ms, on commodity server hardware (including available cloud server configurations). VoltOne maintains extreme write throughput while simultaneously servicing a variety of real-time analytic queries, and while also providing full database crash recovery.
- Standard support SLAs. VoltOne is licensed on an annual subscription basis and includes VoltDB's Standard support SLAs.
- Easy upgrade path to VoltDB Enterprise Edition. VoltOne users enjoy a fast, simple upgrade path to access the cluster capabilities of VoltDB Enterprise Edition, including database scale-out and high availability. The upgrade process is as easy as replacing a license key and updating VoltDB's configuration information.
"Given the increasing volume, variety and velocity of data, we are seeing many organizations that are considering the adoption of new database technologies, such as VoltDB," said Matthew Aslett, senior analyst with The 451 Group. "VoltOne should expand the level of interest in VoltDB's in-memory relational database technology by lowering the entry-point for start-ups and ISVs."
