The cornerstone of the digital economy is the “business moment”—a critical fraction of a second that transforms data into insight and turns an opportunity into business value. Systems of Engagement (SoEs) run on real-time data and define the customer experience in that business moment. Whether detecting fraud, updating trading positions, driving hyper-personalization, or bidding for ad space, the instant a user lands on a website, an SoE needs to reliably handle Internet-scale data volumes and provide decisions at millisecond speeds without escalating costs.
Aerospike Database* running on the new Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors is built to handle massive workloads and demands for responsiveness cost-effectively. It is a hybrid memory architecture database optimized for flash and solid-state drives (SSDs) and is the database of choice for real-time SoEs. This transactional analytics database has proven its ability to process terabytes of data and billions of transactions per day in mission-critical production environments.
Many of the world’s most successful Internet businesses, including ZypMedia, Adform, Appnexus, BlueKai, and Kayak, rely on Aerospike as the ideal solution to support their critical SoEs that require low latency, high throughput, and massive scalability. Key use cases include the following:
- Fraud prevention and digital payments applications that analyze hundreds of contextual data points for billions of users and devices in real time to identify questionable transactions.
- Financial services systems that execute trades and perform real-time, analytics-based risk monitoring and alerting.
- Real-time advertisement bidding that uses real-time auctions to broker online ads, so the right ad can be presented to the right visitor within a fraction of a second.
Aerospike can scale up or out on any number of servers based on the Intel® Xeon® processor to address extreme latency, throughput, and data capacity requirements, providing an unprecedented combination of speed, scale, and reliability.
Aerospike also supports automatic data replication and failover across clusters, racks, and data centers to help ensure that data is reliable, consistent, and always available. By combining exceptional performance with end-to-end resilience, Aerospike provides a solid foundation for supporting any customer-facing or revenue-critical application that requires high availability.
Performance Advances to Empower Business Innovation
Cutting-edge applications and tailored user experiences require immediate access to specific, large quantities of data from anywhere in a database, even in the presence of heavy write loads. They must maintain this capability even as data sets continue to grow. To achieve this need for predictable high performance, Aerospike continually tunes and refines its database engine, while also benefiting from advances in server hardware.
“Aerospike is the database of choice for real-time Systems of Engagement. The new Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors provide our customers with a fast, flexible foundation for meeting the ever-growing data demands of their digital transformation efforts—with speed, scalability, and mission-critical reliability.”
Refreshing the Aerospike platform and the servers it runs on gives customers a straightforward way to dramatically increase predictable performance. The advances built into that refresh enable businesses to readily serve more customers and deliver a better user experience.
Software enhancements in the latest version of Aerospike Database seamlessly take advantage of the benefits of the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors such as more robust cores and higher memory bandwidth, with minimal effort on the part of customers. By upgrading these systems, businesses are prepared to embrace burgeoning data volumes with all the intelligence that modernized applications can muster, preparing real-time SoEs with the means to shine with the emergence of critical business moments.
