Modern machine-to-machine and IoT communications happen in a world where 50 milliseconds is a long time. Consistent communication is fundamental to the premise of IoT devices doing clever things based on decision making that lives in the cloud. In fact, unreliable communication can have the same real-world consequences as not being to communicate with them at all.
VoltDB is designed to respond in the consistently short period of time needed to make these applications work. After a decade of developing and optimizing for major telco companies around the world, we’re confident enough to discuss goals such as predictably halving latency, and significantly reducing the network bandwidth needed.
