VoltDB Launches the Next Generation Open Source Database Servers
Open source VoltDB announced today the general availability of the VoltDB OLTP database management system.
Under the leadership of Postgres and Ingres co-founder, Mike Stonebraker, VoltDB is taking what works with traditional relational databases, tossing out what doesn't and building a high-availability scaleable distributed data storage system.
Unlike the trendy NoSQL databases that have been popping up like dandelions, VoltDB understands SQL and it ensures transactional integrity (ACID).
"VoltDB is ideal for developers of ad serving, gaming, software as a service (SaaS), financial trading, on-line businesses and other systems with large, fast-growing transaction volumes because VoltDB scales out easily on low-cost servers while providing automatic high availability for 24x7 operation," the press release said.
