Can you really have your cake and eat it, too? Is there such a thing as a truly fast system of record or an enterprise system of engagement? To get high performance the trade-off has been to forgo strong consistency. Aerospike 4.0 Hybrid Memory Architecture (HMA), leveraging the latest in NVMe and 3D NAND flash, has delivered strong consistency without compromising on performance while continuing to be secure, reliable and highly scalable.

Unique business cases have evolved including:

  • Capital markets mainframe modernization and off-loading
  • Calculating portfolio risk metrics on a continual basis for a retail bank
  • Fraud detection on credit card processing with 30x better SLAs
  • Extremely high scale billing and charging systems in the Telco space
  • Maintaining campaign spend for real-time bidding in the AdTech industry
