What Real-Time Application Pattern Works for You?

3 common real-time application patterns that require a real-time decision Editor’s note: This blog post first appeared on the InfoWorld blog on September 29, 2017. At first glance, building a real-time application may sound like a daunting proposition, one that involves technical challenges as well as a significant financial investment, especially when you have an […]

Measuring Real-Time

Editor’s note: This blog post first appeared on the InfoWorld blog on August 28th The term “real-time” is thrown around a lot these days, but it’s a buzzword that is often surrounded by ambiguity. Every day, it seems a new product is announcing its real-time capability. But how is real-time measured? It certainly isn’t measured […]

Fast Data Pipeline Design: Updating Per-Event Decisions by Swapping Tables

Fast Data Pipeline

VoltDB was one of the first companies to enable a new modern breed of applications, applications that combine streaming, or “fast data”, tightly with big data.We call these applications Fast Data Pipelines. First, a quick high-level summary of the fast data pipeline architecture:   The first thing to notice is that there is a tight […]

A New Offering from VoltDB – VoltDB Pro

The lion’s share of VoltDB deployments are enterprise-size, comprising a dozen or more nodes, processing over 1 billion transactions a day. But often we hear from start-ups, small-medium companies, or independent ISVs who need VoltDB speed, high availability and low latency ACID guarantees, but on a slightly smaller scale. With that in mind, VoltDB recently […]

Billions and billions (of transactions)

Billions and billions[1] of transactions are executed each and every day by production-deployed VoltDB applications. A back-of-the-napkin calculation puts the number north of 50 billion a day. The number is likely much, much higher. These billions of transactions are executed across a variety of innovative applications, applications not practical, or sometimes even possible, to build […]

Introducing VoltDB v6.0

VoltDB is already the go-to product for developing fast data applications because of its unparalleled performance, availability, and durability. v6.0 builds on that foundation by extending existing capabilities and simplifying the development process. What does a VoltDB application look like? Some of the characteristics are: Applications ingest and process lots of data – data (events) […]

Simplifying the (complex) Lambda Architecture

The Lambda Architecture defines a robust framework for ingesting streams of fast data while providing efficient real-time and historical analytics. In Lambda, immutable data flows in one direction: into the system. The architecture’s main goal is to execute OLAP-type processing faster – in essence,  reduce columnar analytics from every couple of seconds to 100ms or […]
