MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Aerospike announced today that it has been recognized by Gartner, Inc. in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems1, which was published on October 21, 2013. The new report from Gartner examines the key capabilities of information management for transaction processing as the market for operational database management systems (DBMS), formerly called online transactional processing (OLTP), continues to evolve.
“With the introduction of NoSQL in support of unstructured data in transactions and the viable use of in-memory computing, many organizations are beginning to use these new DBMS engines for specific use cases (such as global scalability of Web applications).”
“Previously, the OLTP DBMS was very mature with few new entrants to challenge the status quo,” The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems2 report observes. It also states, “With the introduction of NoSQL in support of unstructured data in transactions and the viable use of in-memory computing, many organizations are beginning to use these new DBMS engines for specific use cases (such as global scalability of Web applications).” The Gartner report further notes, “Typical of the DBMS market, Gartner finds many new and innovative small vendors with great new ideas that are ‘pushing’ forward the more mature vendors and the market in general.”
“Aerospike has built a modern database that takes advantage of the latest in flash storage, server hardware and distributed systems and combines traditional relational database reliability with NoSQL performance and flexibility,” said Joe Gottlieb, CEO of Aerospike. “We are thrilled to be recognized in the ‘Visionaries’ quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems. We view it as further validation of Aerospike’s next-generation architecture and unique ability to power a new class of real-time big data driven enterprise applications—those that personalize interactions across the Internet of People and those that sense and respond in real time across the Internet of Things.”
