VoltDB Introduces Smart Streaming Architecture for the Connected World

BEDFORD, Mass., April 11, 2019 — VoltDB, the enterprise-class fast data processing platform that powers real-time intelligent decisions on streaming data, today announced the industry’s first Smart Stream Processing Architecture to support fast data strategies at the edge. VoltDB is empowering all industries to take advantage of the 5G revolution.

5G will only increase the data volume and speed needs that are already putting pressure on traditional data architecture. Companies need to manage this unprecedented increase in data traffic not just to ingest, but to also drive actions by making intelligent, dynamic decisions across multiple streams of data. While current data streaming architectures are usually sufficient to act as processing pipelines, they do not meet the needs of mission critical applications which are underscored by the low latency and responsive multi-step decisions.

VoltDB’s new Smart Stream Processing Architecture significantly simplifies the data processing architecture by reducing the three disparate functions for ingestion, processing and storage down to a single unified layer, with fully ACID serializable transactions. Decreasing latency and architecture complexity empowers organizations to deliver value more quickly and intelligently by analyzing and acting on incoming data to drive better monetization of their real-time data which is being accelerated by 5G, artificial intelligence and machine learning trends. Unlike existing solutions, VoltDB’s Smart Streaming Architecture also provides accurate contextual state and embedded machine learning without sacrificing scale, performance or accuracy across multiple streams of data.

“Fast streaming data needs to apply machine learning insights with higher agility for mission critical applications. These applications demand lower latencies that have created a confluence of forces that render the existing data processing options insufficient,” said David Flower, CEO of VoltDB. “Stitching together point solutions will not suffice anymore. Organizations require a data processing platform that is forged together to address allfast data needs. VoltDB delivers a unique and unified platform that enables enterprises to extract maximum value from their streaming data.”


VoltDB v9.0 is now available. For more information, please contact sales [at], or learn more about VoltDB’s Smart Streaming Architecture here.
