Aerospike aer.o.spike [air-oh-spahyk] noun, 1. tip of a rocket that enhances speed and stability.
Aerospike was founded to push the limits of modern processors, storage technologies and distributed systems. Aerospike founders wanted to make scaling easy for all developers, not just the few who worked at companies with deep enough pockets to build their own.
They did what the set out to do. They built the fastest, most reliable database in the world. The first database optimized for flash (patent pending) with a hybrid RAM/flash storage architecture. The first NoSQL database to combine transactions with “hot” analytics (patent for indexed map reduce) and the first in-memory NoSQL database with strong consistency (ACID).
Aerospike has run non-stop in production for almost 4 years. It is the gold standard for the most demanding applications – real-time bidding platforms (RTB) and data management platforms (DMP) in ad-tech – the foundation for one-to-one digital marketing across the entire Internet. Companies like AppNexus, BlueKai, Chango, The Trade Desk and [x+1]. In addition, devops engineers are now replacing caching tiers, redis clusters, in-memory databases and first generation NoSQL databases with Aerospike – a database that is as fast as a cache!
The company is headquartered in Mountain View, California with engineering offices in Mountain View and Bangalore, India. Advisors include Don Haderle, father of IBM DB2 and legendary marketing guru Regis McKenna. Investors include NEA, Alsop Louie and Draper & Associates.
