A Database Month event:

"Big Data" data management, driven by mobile, smart grid infrastructure, telco and integrated retail generates data faster than legacy, disk-based systems can ingest, analyze and decision. Meanwhile, the declining cost of DRAM and the continued emergence of fast flash technologies makes in-memory big data processing affordable. It is a perfect combination of business need and technology.

Operational data stores are moving in-memory - changing the way we think about data management and broadening the possibilities for real time, customer focused applications.

This talk will discuss emerging trends driving new in-memory OLTP technologies and will present VoltDB's view of the very-near future of the operational database.
