Enterprise-class high availability, disaster recovery management, & security
In today’s digital economy, your data is the most valuable asset for your organization. Hence protecting your data from unforeseen events such as node/cluster, software, or even network failure is of utmost importance. Right from day one VoltDB has offered a enterprise class highly available and fault tolerant cluster, that has been tried, tested, and proven in demanding fast data apps by hundreds of organizations.
DIY real-time operations and analytics solutions are far from enterprise ready. Building a DIY solution requires cobbling together various disparate open source tools such as: RabbitMQ, Spark, Storm, Flume, Squoop, Redis, Cassandra, HBase, and others. Complexity, cost, latency, and risk build-up with each layer adding risk to the project. Developing and maintaining such a convoluted system also ties up valuable engineering resources, and takes takes months, if not years, to deploy in production. While VoltDB has high availability and disaster recovery built into the database; DIY solutions just don’t offer these must have enterprise features.
In addition to database availability, safeguarding your data is of vital importance. VoltDB provides encryption and authentication features to fortify your data at all times. On the contrary; open source software has a lot of security vulnerabilities baked-in and are a major threat to enterprise security; as evidenced by the Equifax data breach in 2017.
