VoltDB and the YCSB Benchmark

VoltDB and YCSB …

YCSB is a well known benchmark that was devised by a group at Yahoo! Research led by Brian F. Cooper. It came about because the proliferation of what the authors call ‘cloud serving systems’, and the need to be able to do ‘apples to apples’ comparisons between them. Between 2005 and 2015 we saw an [...]

VoltDB Gets 66K TPS on the “Telecom Application Transaction Processing” Benchmark

Introduction The “Telecom Application Transaction Processing” benchmark was devised to model telco system behavior for benchmark purposes. The documentation describes it as follows: The Telecommunication Application Transaction Processing (TATP) benchmark is designed to measure the performance of a relational DBMS/OS/Hardware combination in a typical telco application. The benchmark generates a flooding load on a database [...]

VoltDB is an in-memory NewSQL transactional database for fast data applications, currently in use by major telcos, financial services, and many other markets. To display the competitiveness […]

Managing the real-time data explosion? Look out for these 5 gotchas

Real-time connectivity will stop being an optional way to incrementally improve efficiency and instead become a baseline requirement without which things simply won’t work. Over the next decade the ratio of humans to computers on the internet will change radically. We’re moving from an era where interactions were mostly between individual humans and servers to […]

An intern’s experience at VoltDB: Partial snapshots, YCSB benchmark

Working at VoltDB is a fantastic experience. Coming from Brown CS, I worked as a software engineering intern during the summer of 2016. I was part of the Data Replication (DR) team, which builds cross data-center replication and database backup and recovery software. I started by making improvements to the partial snapshot feature. A database […]

Apps that need ACID

There’s a lot of discussion about the value of consistency and ACID transactions in data management. I thought it would be useful to describe three fully implemented enterprise-class applications, and one example application, that need ACID transactions. These descriptions should make an abstract concept a bit more concrete. “The Last Dollar Problem” Airpush is a […]
