BOARD & ADVISOR TEAM
“Our initial customers chose us, even though they knew about the other options. Naturally, they were looking to find the flaws in our product, so they kept probing for flaws – ‘What about this, and what about that?’ Finally, when they understood that the system was designed for full internet scale uses, they said, ‘Ok, let’s try it.’ Later on they told us that it really does what we said it would. In other words, it works.”
“The ubiquity of smart devices is heralding a new era of fast data where the value of applications lies in the ability to sense and respond to Internet-scale data in real time. However, it is also challenging databases to cost-effectively and reliably deliver speed at scale.”
“The killer app is real-time information serving – serving information about what’s happening NOW. Businesses want to understand what consumers are doing and provide them services in the context of where they are and what they are doing NOW.”
“Databases designed around the limitations of the disk drive have served us well for the last few decades, but the emergence of Internet-scale Web applications requires a fundamentally different approach to database architecture.”
WHO IS BACKING US
“When a VC doubles down on an investment, one can assume two things: first, that the company’s execution is exceeding the investor’s expectations, and second, that the opportunity is now even bigger. Aerospike squarely fits the bill.”
“Since we seeded Aerospike in 2011, we have watched the company mature while the market started to become visible to everyone. Managing data in real time enables the next generation of applications that sense and respond intelligently to what is happening.”
“New IT demands decisioning solutions that offer speed, affordability, enterprise resiliency and scale without compromises. Aerospike excels at this design center with a fundamental database redesign and flash leverage.”
“While first-generation NoSQL and Hadoop tackled big data variety and volume, Aerospike delivered on velocity and will keep riding that wave with every advance in processor, storage and networking technology.”
