Aerospike, a provider of next-generation, real-time NoSQL data solutions, has unveiled Aerospike Database 5, featuring breakthroughs in Multi-Site Clustering that combine strong consistency with support for large-scale, globally distributed transactional applications that require very low latency. Aerospike Database 5 provides a real-time, always-on, active-active architecture that supports strongly consistent, globally distributed transactions at scale.
According to Aerospike, global enterprises using legacy relational or NoSQL databases have been forced to make tradeoffs between data consistency and high performance for large-scale, always-on globally distributed transaction systems, but Aerospike Multi-Site Clustering eliminates the tradeoff between strong consistency and low latency while delivering the horizontal scale and resiliency needed for always-on global enterprises.
In addition, because applications such as digital payment systems, real-time inventory tracking, and online gaming rely on highly resilient systems with fast access to data centers distributed around the world, it is not acceptable to compromise data consistency for any transaction, whether the data is stored in a private cloud, a public cloud, hybrid cloud, multi-cloud or inter-cloud architecture.
The new release includes significant performance and functional enhancements to Aerospike Cross Data Center Replication (XDR) capabilities that enable better management and control of asynchronous replication of data across geographically distributed clusters. These enhancements allow enterprises to create a global data hub that routes and augments data from the edge of the data center to wherever it’s needed—whether in Aerospike clusters or any other data repository.
“The real-time always-on nature of today’s business environment requires database systems that provide strong consistency, geographic data distribution, elasticity, and high performance,” said Srini Srinivasan, chief product officer and founder, Aerospike. “Aerospike Multi-Site Clustering allows businesses to combine the strong consistency provided by legacy database systems with the data distribution, elasticity, and high performance provided by NoSQL solutions.”
