Key Considerations for a Modern Database to Operate at Scale

November 10, 2017

Modern applications have two primary needs: performance and ease of operations, both at scale. Performance The performance consists of two aspects: throughput and latency. Both are driven by applications becoming machine-driven i.e. API-driven. Humans will wait much longer than an API will since APIs have strict latency expectations due to timeouts. When you take a […]

Latency: Will it undermine the most interesting 5G use cases?

June 19, 2017

One of the big topics at the OpenStack conference was how to prepare and implement a successful transition to 5G. Unfortunately, this means that the age-old Telco bugbears will rear their ugly heads again, including latency. 5G, as a fundamental requirement, mandates a 1 millisecond latency from the datasource to its destination. Currently, most applications […]

Impressions from the Austin, TX Telco 5G/BCE Show

June 02, 2017

VoltDB has been providing value to telco communications solution providers since our beginnings back in 2009. Back then, we were designed into OSS/BSS software offered by companies like Openet and HP (now HPE) because our database could make the very fast authorization/authentication decisions that were needed while offering the high reliability required by carriers. Our in-memory […]
