The transaction volumes made possible by 5G, along with the rapid growth of IoT, are pushing legacy databases beyond their architectural limits and introducing new reliability demands. Where the loss of a system used to be merely inconvenient, failure of a back-end computer system can now render mission critical devices functionally useless. It’s clear that today’s systems need to be as reliable as the phone network.
Since the platform’s conception by Michael Stonebraker, VoltDB’s architecture and release management strategy have been designed with high volume, high availability applications in mind. Early adoption by some of the biggest Telco organizations has given us a deep understanding of how to support mission critical systems, as well as how to practically roll out new features so our customers can gain immediate advantage.
