As more companies engage in real-time interactions with consumers, they measure response times in milliseconds, and downtime is not an option. Increasingly, these businesses are running the Aerospike real-time NoSQL database at multiple data centers to reach customers faster and keep their applications up and running—even if one data center experiences a failure. These companies rely on the Aerospike database’s cross data center replication to ensure the consistency and continuous availability of their data. Today, Aerospike announced that it has significantly enhanced its cross data center replication with the launch of Aerospike Enterprise Edition 2.6.
Star and Complex Ring Topologies Together
The newest release of Aerospike adds a star topology to its cross data center replication, allowing one data center to simultaneously replicate data to multiple data centers. This complements Aerospike’s existing support for complex multi-master ring replication topologies. Aerospike is now the only NoSQL database that lets enterprises choose to implement a star topology, complex ring topology, or even both in the same deployment. As a result, companies have unprecedented flexibility to implement the replication approach that best supports their business and technology demands.
Sets Within a Name Space for Better Data Control
With Aerospike Enterprise Edition 2.6, cross data center replication goes beyond basic key-value store capabilities and features sets within a name space. Similar to tables in a relational database, these sets enable applications to be isolated and allow data resources to be managed independently. As a result, different applications can control their own sets of data, providing greater efficiency and flexibility.
“As more businesses use our Aerospike NoSQL database to interact with consumers in real-time, we are seeing a growing diversity in how they implement it across their data centers,” said Srini V. Srinivasan, Aerospike founder and vice president of engineering and operations. “The new cross data center replication features in our latest release of Aerospike Enterprise Edition provide these organizations with unmatched flexibility for tailoring their replication to meet the specific demands and opportunities they face in the market today.”
Bill Marcum, vice president of engineering at Federated Media Publishing, observed, “With Aerospike, we not only have the sub-millisecond speed and reliability we were looking for, we also have the star replication topology we need to collect data at our main data center and then get it out to our other sites as quickly as possible. This has eliminated our need to worry about lost opportunities or lost customers.”
Aerospike, Inc. offers the only real-time NoSQL database and key-value store that delivers predictable high performance for mission-critical, Web-scale applications. Aerospike’s flash-optimized, shared-nothing architecture scales linearly, consistently processing over 500k transactions per second per node with sub-millisecond latency. With 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 17x improvement in TCO over other NoSQL databases.
