VoltDB In-memory Database Chosen by Global Telco Leader for Roll-out of NFV and 5G Capabilities
BEDFORD, Mass., April 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — VoltDB, the enterprise-class database that powers business-critical applications, today announced it has been selected by Nokia to power two enterprise applications in its packet core business. VoltDB will be embedded into the Nokia Cloud Mobility Manager (CMM) and the Cloud Mobile Gateway (CMG) offerings, which are key to the company’s global telecoms infrastructure.
VoltDB’s ability to reliably handle hundreds of thousands of write transactions per second — without compromising accuracy or performance — was a factor in its selection, as was its ability to do so without DBA support while running on a cluster of generic servers without access to a SAN.
Nokia CMM can be deployed in standard network functions virtualization (NFV) infrastructure environments or on pre-integrated and modular server-based solutions, sharing a common network management system with Nokia packet core functions and enabling Nokia customers to seamlessly transition to NFV and software-defined networking (SDN).
VoltDB also will be embedded in the Nokia Cloud Mobile Gateway (CMG) application, which performs gateway functions within the packet core. CMG will help mobile operators provision for the growth of mobile broadband, deliver new Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine Type Communications (MTC) services, and provide a foundation for 5G.
VoltDB is currently deployed in the Nokia Telecom Application Server (TAS), a component of the Nokia Telco Cloud.
“Companies like Nokia make long-term investments in their infrastructure to support current and future business initiatives,” said David Flower, President and CEO, VoltDB. “The CMM and CMG offerings are integral to the commitment Nokia has made to supporting emerging technologies, including NFV and 5G. We are delighted Nokia has chosen VoltDB to serve as a core technology for its emerging infrastructure, and further endorses the enterprise capability of our product.”
