Aerospike Named in “Who’s Who in NoSQL DBMSs” by Leading Analyst Firm

Vendors were chosen for inclusion primarily based on market momentum and leadership in their respective categories

Mountain View, CA – August 29, 2013 – Aerospike today announced that the company has been named in the Who’s Who in NoSQL DBMSs1 report published by Gartner, Inc. on August 23, 2013. Vendors were chosen for inclusion primarily based on market momentum and leadership in their respective categories.

The Gartner Who’s Who in NoSQL DBMSs2 report observes that, “Enterprises use NoSQL data stores to exploit a number of important use cases: Internet commerce; machine-to-machine communications; mobile computing; social networking; the integration of IT and operational technologies. The use cases based on these trends typically require systems to ingest, process and respond to data faster than before.”

Aerospike Database for Real-Time Big Data
Today’s announcement follows last week’s launch of Aerospike 3, which empowers developers to extend the functionality of their Internet-scale applications into the database, enabling faster, more relevant real-time interactions. Aerospike 3 builds on Aerospike 2, the flash-optimized in-memory database and key-value store that customers rely on to consistently respond within milliseconds while predictably processing terabytes of data and billions of transactions per day—all with no downtime. Aerospike, which first debuted three years ago, is now the database of choice in digital advertising, serving some of the world’s most demanding real-time big data-intensive environments. (For more information, see Aerospike 3 press release dated August 19, 2013.)

“From the start, we’ve focused on designing a database specifically tuned for a new generation of Internet applications based on big data where the value is in the ability to respond in real time based on what consumers and their devices are doing now,” said Brian Bulkowski, Aerospike founder and CTO. “We view the inclusion of Aerospike in Gartner’s ‘Who’s Who in NoSQL DBMSs’ as further validation of our ability to deliver on that promise.”
