Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) 2021 has a distinct “5G for Enterprise” focus. Today, VoltDB, provider of an enterprise-grade data platform built to enable fast-data decisioning, today announced the release of V10.2 of its data platform at the gathering.

According to VoltDB, the latest version of the VoltDB Data Platform adds important improvements that allow enterprises to take full advantage of 5G, cloud, and edge technologies, including enhanced integrations for Kafka and Kubernetes, improved cross datacenter replication, and an opportunity to bypass Kafka completely.

“Now, with our complete cloud-native features, an enterprise or an operator can take advantage of VoltDB in environments such as AWS Outposts, Wavelength, and of course, the cloud,” said VoltDB CEO & President, David Flower. “This gives them a huge advantage when it comes to deploying latency-dependent applications that need both speed and data accuracy.”

The VoltDB Data Platform has been upgraded to support new technologies and paradigms in the 5G and enterprise edge computing space with a focus on optimizing latency-dependent applications.

The company claims it manages data ingestion to action in under ten milliseconds.

The latest version of the VoltDB Data Platform offers a number of improvements, including:

  • Topics, which provides the ability to publish event data directly to VoltDB without an intermediate messaging layer like Kafka.
  • Kafka API compatibility, which allows developers to use either VoltDB native APIs or Kafka APIs to process real-time events.
  • An improved Kubernetes Operator, which includes multiple enhancements and improvements based on various mission-critical deployments at tier 1 communication service providers (CSPs).
  • Multiple performance enhancements to the platform’s active-active-active cross datacenter replication based on feedback on the first generation of deployments.
