What is VoltDB?

Post by JimKnicely » Fri Dec 14, 2012 1:34 pm

Simply put: VoltDB is a wicked fast NewSQL database system. It is specifically designed to run on modern scale-out architectures – fast, inexpensive servers connected via high-speed data networks.
Here is a link to the VoltDB home page:

It can be used as a super fast ETL solution to Vertica!

VoltDB was originally part of Vertica, and was used for caching high throughput data before Vertica could absorb it
