In this brief VoltDB How-To, Founding Engineer, John Hugg will discuss the first steps in getting started with VoltDB: downloading VoltDB from the website and getting it running for the first time. Be sure to download VoltDB, and give it a try for yourself.
In this brief VoltDB How-To, Founding Engineer, John Hugg will discuss the sample voter application. The voter example is a complete VoltDB application simulating an American-Idol-style gameshow voting application. Be sure to download VoltDB, and give it a try for yourself.
Learn more about Partial failure and why ACID transactions are necessary, as told by VoltDB Founding Engineer, John Hugg.
Perform the same operations on the same starting state in the same order and you can expect the same finishing state. That’s the essence of determinism; this talk will focus on its role in distributed systems.
John Hugg presents on the VoltDB architecture for the Cloud Scale Data Science virtual Meetup on May 6. 2015
Presented by John Hugg. In 2007, researchers at MIT, Brown & Yale set out to build a new kind of relational database called H-Store. Commercially developed as VoltDB, it was suddenly possible to build applications that did millions of transactional operations per second at very low cost and with high fault tolerance. While suitable for micro-payments and other high volume, traditional transactional work, many early customers built systems for stream processing. As the product evolved, more and more features were added to support streaming, event processing and ingestion workloads, including materialized views, Kafka ingestion and push-to-HDFS data migration. This talk will explain, through customer use-cases and some development backstory, how the H-Store/VoltDB architecture compares to CEP systems and newer streaming architectures like Storm and Spark Streaming.
VoltDB developer John Hugg provides a demo of his Unique Devices application. It’s 30 lines of code that can save you weeks/months of development and deliver a faster, simpler app. Try if for yourself. Download the app here and test it out: http://voltdb.com/community/applications
Go behind the scenes with John Piekos, our VP of Engineering, to learn more about the VoltDB software development process.
Meet Ruth Morgenstein – our Manager of QA and Support – and get the inside scoop on the QA process at VoltDB.
The examples from the VoltDB kit are configured to run on one machine, however in this video, John Hugg will demonstrate how to configure the Voter example to run on three machines.
