Eagle Taps In-Memory VoltDB For Performance Measurement

Subscribe to our newsletter

BNY Mellon unit Eagle Investment Systems has selected and will resell in-memory database technology from VoltDB. Eagle will leverage the VoltDB database to underpin real-time analytics and decision support functionality initially for its performance measurement offering.

VoltDB is an ACID-compliant relational database offering a SQL interface and Java stored procedures, designed to support high velocity transactions.

Says Eagle CTO, Marc Firenze: “We deliver the best in class technology to our clients, and when we evaluated VoltDB, we discovered that it suited our requirements. Its in-memory, high-velocity database will enhance our current and future offerings, and our first use of VoltDB will be in our forthcoming ex-ante risk extension to our performance measurement solution.”

“Big data is changing the way developers design, plan and build applications, especially in the financial services industry, where speed and cost per transaction efficiency are absolutely essential,” says VoltDB CEO, Bruce Reading.

Now shipping its version 3.0 product, VoltDB was founded in 2009. It is one of the many data management companies to benefit from the work of Michael Stonebraker – others being Ingres (folded into Actian, with its open source offering the genesis for the likes of Pivotal’s Greenplum database), Illustra, (aquired by Informix, and in turn by IBM), Cohera (IP of which is now in Oracle), StreamBase Systems (now part of TIBCO Software), Vertica (acquired by HP), and most lately Paradigm4.
