From the announcement of VoltDB being used by the Japanese ISP, Sakura Internet, for their real-time Internet traffic monitoring and analysis platform for detecting and mitigating large-scale distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks:
Tamihiro Yuzawa: Our system needs to be capable of sifting through massive amounts of traffic flow data in real-time. VoltDB was our choice from the beginning because it’s a super-fast datastore that supports SQL.
Scott Jarr: Sakura’s security infrastructure requires a datastore that can scale massively and on demand, without sacrificing data accuracy.
Mark these VoltDB keywords:
- fast (read in-memory)
- data consistency
