Enterprise database provider VoltDB announced the latest version of its “in-memory” database solution on Wednesday.

In the update, VoltDB has made long-tail latency responses more predictable through real-time data collection. The company says this will improve real-time processing and give customers self-service analysis.

The update also adds enhanced SQL capabilities; these include recursive CTE support, useful for blockchain querying. Customers can add custom logic to the SQL through UDFs, which help identify anomalies before they impact the business end.

The firm says financial institutions can use the custom logic functionality to detect and prevent fraud in real-time. The database uses a combination of fraud detection logic and machine learning to prevent problems before they occur.

VoltDB has added a feature that enables transport layer security between individual cluster nodes and DR clusters, which provides customers with secure communications within and across data centers.

“While enterprise organizations have no shortage of real-time data, they continue to struggle with taking immediate action on that data before opportunities are lost,” said Ruth Morgenstein, VP of Engineering at VoltDB.

“VoltDB empowers organizations to ingest and analyze high transactional throughput with low latency to make immediate and accurate decisions that positively impact their business.”
