Aerospike Releases Connect Family of Add-On Modules

Aerospike Inc., developer of a NoSQL database, is launching the Aerospike Connect family of add-on modules, as well as a new REST API, to make it even easier to integrate the Aerospike Database into both new and existing enterprise infrastructure systems.

Both Aerospike Connect for Spark and Aerospike Connect for Kafka eliminate the need for custom coding to integrate the Aerospike Database with other enterprise systems. The Aerospike REST Client enables any enterprise developer to rapidly develop new real-time decisioning applications that need the Aerospike Database — irrespective of application language.

 “Organizations are rapidly embracing digital transformation, but often hit hurdles in connecting data, systems and applications across the enterprise,” said John Dillon, CEO, Aerospike. “The Aerospike Connect family and REST Client enable companies to seamlessly and cost-effectively integrate the Aerospike Database into other enterprise data systems and to power Petabyte-scale applications and analytics.”

Aerospike Connect for Spark enables companies to directly integrate the Aerospike Database with their existing Spark infrastructure. In addition, Aerospike Connect for Spark allows companies to combine transactional and historical data stored in the Aerospike Database with streaming event data for consumption by machine learning and artificial intelligence engines using Apache Spark.

Aerospike Connect for Kafka makes it easy for enterprises to exchange data bi-directionally between the Aerospike Database and enterprise transactional systems at the edge and core. It can be deployed in three modes: inbound only, for ingesting data from Kafka into Aerospike; bidirectional, for ingesting data into and out of Aerospike; and developer-enabled outbound, to extract data from Aerospike into custom end points not yet supported.

Aerospike REST Client is an interface for the Aerospike Database that enables developers to work with the Aerospike data layer. They can interface in a familiar programming language of their choice for new applications and microservices.
