  • Designed by DBMS design pioneer Mike Stonebraker for companies that have outgrown the performance limitations of traditional SQL databases, open-source VoltDB provides a very fast, scalable, fault-tolerant and ACID-compliant, distributed SQL database for transactional (OLTP) applications.

    Unlike NoSQL Key-Value stores (K-V stores) or sharding, which require the application developer to manage the complexities of data consistency, VoltDB handles data integrity and consistency for you.
