Actuate and VoltDB Team To Create Value From Big Data At Great Speeds

VoltDB, provider of ultra-high-throughput relational database systems (RDBMSs); and Actuate Corporation, Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools(BIRT) Company – which is into Business Intelligence space; announced an alliance that will enable VoltDB and ActuateOne customers to more quickly and effectively process their Big Data and operationalize the resulting insights. The customers will benefit from the rate at which big data can be analysed and thus value being created.

The database that accommodates millions of transactions per second – VoltDB’s VoltDB-S; designed specifically to operate on high velocity data sources, marries proven relational database capabilities with a modern design that allows companies to make real-time decisions that are faster and more informed than possible with any other system. Processing at speeds from 45 to 100 times faster than traditional databases, VoltDB excels at handling high-speed data applications. It can augment Big Data storage by helping to make inexpensive virtualized computing infrastructures – including Cloud service platforms – work better for companies handling high velocity transactional data feeds, including log/event data, market data feeds, and social media feeds.

BIRT, an open source project, is a development environment for presenting compelling data visualizations to users. ActuateOne – a suite of interactive applications and a development and deployment platform built on BIRT – gives enterprises the tools they need to create and deploy custom business intelligence and information applications that users want, with the intuitive, interactive experience that they expect. The operational dashboard and analytics features combine real-time data feeds with historical data, allowing clients to see the aggregation of trends, track data and demonstrate emerging themes that erupt in real time.

Companies across various industrial sectors needing fast, real-time data processing will benefit from being able to quickly analyze data that is processed in milliseconds.

Benefits of the Combined Solution:

    • Low latency, guaranteed accuracy and write throughput
    • Ability to scale reads and writes of large active datasets, while maintaining a relational model and SQL semantics
    • Operational and analytic dashboards allow collaborators to utilize native analytic capabilities to refine their data visualizations, providing visibility through the transactional, operational and analytical phases of their data.
    • Ability to combine both real-time and historical data sources to provide the context necessary for organizations to analyze ever-evolving information.

“Together, VoltDB offers lightning-speed transaction processing and ActuateOne enables real-time analysis and visualization without the need for pre-processing. The combination can dramatically speed the time from Big Data access to operationalized insights that can improve the bottom line in any organization,” said Sam Berg, VP of Field Operations for VoltDB.
