WHY WE BUILT AEROSPIKE

We’re a group of engineers who are fanatical about performance, and fanatical about reliability.

As long-time industry veterans, we believed that multicore processing, modern networks, Flash storage, and the latest memory architectures together provide a new generation of data architecture. Along the way, NoSQL was coined, providing a framework for a database revolution.

We wanted to give all technologists the type of next generation tools built internally at large internet companies like Google, Twitter, and Amazon. We wanted to make scaling easy, but also affordable.

We set out to build the fastest and most reliable database in the world. Aerospike is the first flash-optimized enterprise NoSQL database with strong consistency and 5 9’s uptime, and making the result open source.

What we do

“For us, 100% uptime is the top metric of success, and that’s what we’ve been able to achieve with the Aerospike real-time enterprise NoSQL database.” – Michael Yudin, adMarketplace CTO

We care about what you’re building

We want you to build something cooler than has been built ever before. With more data and with increasing velocity — you need to put your creative energy into making your project great, not reinventing the database. Our sales engineers take the time to understand what you’re building, and can recommend hardware configurations, data models, or will even advise you when not to use Aerospike if that makes sense.

Learn more about our technologies

We built our company around mission driven engineering.

We’re engineers, not academics. At our headquarters in Mountain View and engineering offices in Bangalore, we’ve assembled a team that combines practical expertise in distributed systems engineering, cloud computing, networking, databases, and software development. Whatever their role, each Aerospiker combines an uncompromising engineering mindset with an unwavering focus on executing in service of the mission on behalf of our community.

We’re here for the long haul

Continually improving Aerospike takes time, energy, hardware, and the hard work of many people. Our business model – with full speed and scale open source funded by our Enterprise NoSQL Edition – allows us to continue to innovate in systems and data structures, to provide high grade support, and be here to help when you need it.

AN ENGINEERING CULTURE

Engineers build things that solve problems, speak up when things aren’t right, evaluate ideas on their merits and build things that fix what’s broken. At Aerospike, we are all engineers and we are focused on solving the hardest problems we can find.

We’ve succeeded only when you’re using Aerospike to build something cool. Anything else is an opinion — engineering includes the tradeoffs. Engineering proves its worth when it solves real world problems, not academic exercises.

enterprise NoSQL innovations

We don’t get everything correct. We’ve got our opinions, our plans, and we trade complexity for features and performance daily. Our internal processes can be contentious, our forum conversations can be heated, but every conversation has one goal: a better enterprise NoSQL database solution

Aerospike prices Enterprise Edition by data volume. We saw that database pricing based on nodes was irrational – that business value was based on the quantity and velocity of data. By pricing closest to business value – not node count – we make sure your operations staff chooses the right hardware, instead playing games to avoid software licenses.

WHO IS PARTNERING WITH US

Aerospike is the “system of engagement” or “system of record” for modern real-time big data or context driven applications, a mission and revenue critical part of business operations.

We partner with customers to ensure the smooth and safe operations of their Aerospike deployments.

As the first database optimized for flash, we have published the Aerospike Certification Tool (ACT) and partnered with flash vendors to enhance flash storage products and benchmark SSDs and PCIe cards. We also partner with cloud vendors, benchmark high performance bare metal servers and virtual environments.

From direct experience, Aerospike knows that each and every component of an Aerospike deployment—from parts to processes to people—has to work closely for success at web-scale. And so, we don’t just partner, we treat partners as customers.
