Why Does Your FinServ Company Need VoltDB?

Why Does Your FinServ Company Need VoltDB?

Three trends are shaping the future of data processing in financial services:

  1. Moving from near real-time data processing to real-time data processing;
  2. The need for consistent data to provide a single source of truth; and
  3. The need to reduce infrastructure costs by adopting scale-out data management architectures.

Add to these concerns the increase in fraud, the need to comply with increasingly complex regulations, and the need to manage portfolio risk, and it’s clear there is urgency to migrate quickly to scale-out architectures like VoltDB, designed to adapt instantly to meet the demands of real-time businesses.

VoltDB provides the ACID consistency, transactionality, and cloud-ready flexibility modern institutions require.

What is VoltDB?

VoltDB is an in-memory, SQL, cloud-ready operational database for modern applications that require the ability to manage data at unprecedented scale and volume, with 100% accuracy. VoltDB rapidly imports, operates on, and then exports vast amounts of data at lightning speed. Its robust architecture combines the best of traditional transactional databases with the speed and scalability of newer entrants.

Unlike OLTP, Big Data, and NoSQL offerings that force users to compromise, only VoltDB supports all three modern application processing requirements:

  1. Millions –  VoltDB processes relentless volumes of data from users, devices and sources.
  2. Milliseconds – VoltDB ingests, analyzes, and acts on data in milliseconds, with predictable low latency.
  3. 100% –  Data managed by VoltDB is always accurate, all the time, for all decisions.

VoltDB was founded by a team of world-class database experts, including Dr. Michael Stonebraker.

Banks and institutions use VoltDB to modernize revenue and business-critical applications, including:

  • Fraud detection/management
  • Trade reconciliation
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Portfolio/risk management
  • Personalization/Customer experience

Why VoltDB?

VoltDB is adopted in Financial Services because it’s well suited to both the current needs of institutions and the challenges they anticipate in future. VoltDB has been written from scratch to work in a 21st century RAM-centric environment.

VoltDB makes instantaneous decision-making possible by combining the best elements of modern and traditional database technology:

  • The speed + scalability of the best distributed data architectures, combined with the ACID transactionality of traditional RBDMs – without the licensing hassles.
  • The consistency and reliability institutions need, deployed with a streamlined, cloud-ready, highly-available, simple architecture.
  • Active-active, multi-version cross-datacenter replication.
  • The tools + languages developers already know.

Development and production licenses available.

How Does VoltDB Compare?

  • MongoDB – VoltDB has better support for transactions
  • Cassandra – VoltDB is immediately consistent for 100% accuracy
  • Oracle – VoltDB is 12x faster with much lower license costs
  • SMACK Stack– VoltDB has better performance with much less complexity and no glue code

VoltDB Scale

VoltDB Speed

  • VoltDB holds the YCSB benchmark record – 2.4 million TPS.
  • By using a C++ core VoltDB takes advantage of CPU cache pre-fetching.
  • No server stalling for Java garbage collection – much of the operational work is done off the heap
  • About 12X faster than Oracle
  • Using a single thread per partition avoids overhead of latching, locking, and read consistency

VoltDB’s architecture is great for counting things or working with shared, finite resources
