Most databases can run in the cloud, but that’s just the beginning of the story. Performance and results depend on the underlying architecture of the database. VoltDB is ‘cloud-native’, designed and built for today’s exacting requirements around speed, flexibility, virtualization, and elasticity:
- Virtualization / Containerization – Support for docker, kubernetes and virtualization is baked into the product.
- Rapid Failover – when a node fails it’s handled very quickly, and in many cases the application will never know.
- Invisible Recovery – After a failure the node will rejoin the cluster without requiring intervention or significantly disrupting work.
- Elastic Scalability – The cluster can be grown or shrunk programmatically based on the needs of the moment.
