Database Performance of VoltDB Database System Could Prove Faster than Others

By Staff

Now a commercially supported product, VoltDB is a database system designed for extreme transaction processing. Touted as being faster and with better results than other relational systems, VoltDB:

  • Automatically distributes itself, and its data, over a cluster, residing in a server's memory
  • Doesn't call to disk while loading data from tables
  • Maintains data integrity in transactions
  • Eliminates multi-threaded approaches to work, also embedding transactions in the system as stored procedures
  • Manages partitioning so the database looks the same to applications without distributing transaction being given to a programmer
  • Replicates data to two or three locations, without logging each transaction step, for quick rebuilding in case of disaster
