Aerospike aer.o.spike [air-oh-spahyk] noun, 1. tip of a rocket that enhances speed and stability.
Aerospike was founded by database and networking industry veterans who were frustrated with everything else that was available. Their goal was ambitious: to build the first data storage and management system with the ability to handle real-time big data at both blazing speed and high scale.
The idea was to create a new type of database that combined best practices in both database and distributed technology. Many experts said it simply couldn’t be done.
Today, Aerospike offers the only flash-optimized NoSQL database that delivers predictable high performance for mission-critical, high scale applications. Aerospike’s in-memory and shared-nothing architecture scales linearly, consistently processing over 200k transactions per second per node with sub-millisecond latency. Where other technologies fail, Aerospike works.
Aerospike 3 builds on the legacy of Aerospike 2 with complex and large data types, user defined functions, queries using secondary indexes, distributed aggregations and real-time analytics. These capabilities give developers unparalleled flexibility to push code to data and adapt the database to their application in order to build highly tuned systems.
Customers growing their business with Aerospike include AppNexus, BlueKai, eXelate, The Trade Desk and So-net Media Networks, an arm of So-net Entertainment Corporation (a Sony Group Company).
The company is based in Mountain View, California and is backed by NEA, Alsop Louie Partners and Draper Associates. Find out why Tim Draper and Rohini Chakravarthy and ‘Kittu’ Kolluri have invested in Aerospike.
