VoltDB is a blazingly fast relational database system. It is specifically designed to run on modern scale-out architectures: fast, inexpensive servers connected via high-speed data networks. It is aimed at a new generation of database applications - real-time feeds, sensor-driven data streams, micro-transactions, low-latency trading systems - requiring database throughput that can reach millions of operations per second. What’s more, the applications that use this data must scale on demand, provide flawless fault tolerance, and enable real-time visibility into the data that drives business value. It includes client application drivers for applications written in Java, C++, C#, PHP, and Python. VoltDB community members have also authored client libraries for Erlang, Ruby and Node.js. There are streaming export capabilities for leading analytic database environments, including Apache Hadoop.
WiredTiger is an extensible platform for data management. Its storage engine is optimized for high-throughput, big data applications. It can be configured for write-optimized (row-store) or read-optimized (column-store) access, as well as a hybrid of both. It separates the on-disk and in-memory representations of data, leading to a simpler, more compact file format and a large block I/O tailored for modern storage systems.
