Aerospike: Real-time NoSQL database designed for multi-core, multi-processor and SSD

Aerospike is the only real-time NoSQL database built from the ground up to take advantage of today’s multi-core, multi-processor architectures and solid-state drives (SSDs). That’s what makes it fast – 500k TPS per node with sub-millisecond latency. Hybrid architecture with indexes in-memory and data either in-memory or on flash. Srong consistency, tightly coupled clusters (auto replication, re-balancing, cross data center synchronization) reliably store billions of objects and terabytes of data. Native flash means fewer servers, less power, lower ops costs than with just DRAM. Deployed for 3 years with no downtime. Customers include adMarketplace, Bluekai, eXelate, Sony’s So-net and The Trade Desk.

From their website:

Aerospike aer.o.spike [air-oh-spahyk] noun, 1. tip of a rocket that enhances speed and stability.

Aerospike was founded by database and networking industry veterans who were frustrated with everything else that was available. Their goal was ambitious: to build the first data storage and management system with the ability to handle real-time big data at both blazing speed and high scale.

The idea was to create a new type of database that combined best practices in both database and distributed technology. Many experts said it simply couldn’t be done.

Today, Aerospike offers the only real-time NoSQL database that delivers predictable high performance for mission-critical, high scale applications. Aerospike’s flash-optimized, shared-nothing architecture scales linearly, consistently processing over 200k transactions per second per node with sub-millisecond latency. Where other technologies fail, Aerospike works.

With immediate consistency, automatic fail-over, replication, and cross data center synchronization, the Aerospike database reliably stores billions of objects and terabytes of data – while providing 100% uptime and a 10x better TCO compared to other NoSQL databases.

Customers growing their business with Aerospike include AppNexus, eXelate, The Trade Desk and So-net Media Networks, an arm of So-net Entertainment Corporation (a Sony Group Company).

The company is based in Mountain View, California and is backed by NEA, Alsop Louie Partners and Draper Associates.
