VoltDB Extends Open Source Capabilities for Development of Real-Time Applications

VoltDB, the enterprise-class translytical database that powers business-critical applications, announced it is expanding its open source licensing to enable developers to rapidly build, test and deploy real-time applications with the VoltDB data platform. Developers can now access the power of the VoltDB platform with no additional fees, reducing the cost of application development and accelerating the testing and deployment of more advanced database capabilities in production environments.

When choosing technology for their environments, enterprises are increasingly going with an open source first and only policy. VoltDB continues to embrace this trend by making its open source version more feature rich while continuing to offer a fully featured Enterprise edition. VoltDB’s enhanced open source capabilities enable developers to accelerate the development life cycle, more quickly innovating with real-time applications that deliver data-driven insights and actions for maximizing business performance and operations.

PICC’s challenge was selecting a massively scalable event processing system that combined understanding and decisions at super low latency. We found that, unlike other commercial vendors, VoltDB’s open source version was fully feature rich and something we could build and run production applications on,” said Yu Hao, Technology Architect at PICC. “VoltDB is the key to our solution and enables PICC to process exceptionally large data streams and make decisions in real-time”.

VoltDB Open Source Capabilities Accelerate Digital Transformation

VoltDB is committed to empowering developers to test the industry’s fastest in-memory, translytical database that can ingest, analyze and act on massive data streams and power real-time decision making, all in a fully open source environment. VoltDB’s enhanced open source features include:

  • Real-time snapshots to ensure no data is lost during development and testing;
  • Advanced clustering technology enabling multiple data copies;
  • Exporters to take data out and into another analytical database;
  • Manual scale-out on commodity servers; and
  • VoltDB Management Console

Every organization has a different set of priorities when it comes to technology implementation, and we recognize that we need to be flexible in order to align with those needs,” said Madhup Mishra, Head of Products at VoltDB. “As we’re seeing greater interest in VoltDB, we are lowering the barriers to entry and putting the power back in the hands of developers by extending our open source licenses to enable faster development, testing and deployment.”
