Recently, we held a webinar, hosted by one of our engineers, entitled “Discussion & Demo — Machine Learning with True Real-Time Decisioning”. In it, we explored how intelligent real-time decisioning technology in machine learning helps you operationalize your analytics and take the next critical step in realizing your machine learning goals. It also featured a live demonstration showcasing machine learning for fraud prevention using VoltDB’s real-time data platform.

Redis has been one of the most popular in-memory key-value stores according to Stack Overflow’s Developer Survey. The popularity of open source Redis can be attributed to the perception that Redis is a “low cost” alternative to commercial software. While the software is free to download and use, the true costs of running Redis in a production environment are unfortunately not realized in the first few months. However, as companies grow, so does their data — as well as their performance requirements – and that is when Redis runs into speed bumps. We see numerous companies running into issues with Redis at scale, where there is a significant drop in performance, and hardware costs begin to pile up. Redis is also much harder to use at scale; no transaction support across shards being the primary issue.

This week, we released VoltDB v8.2. Here are some of the highlights: Table TTL If you’ve ever built a high-volume app for Volt, or hooked Volt up to a Kafka or Kinesis stream, you know how important it is to age out the old data so...
