Velocity New York 2014

NEW YORK--()--Aerospike Inc., the world’s first flash-optimized database and the fastest, most reliable in-memory NoSQL database, today announced a new startup special and trade-in program – enabling more organizations to realize the speed and power of its next-generation, open source NoSQL technology.

“We want to ensure that all developers, at every company have access to Aerospike’s next-generation, NoSQL database so they have the ability to create powerful technologies that scale,” said Brian Bulkowski, co-founder and CTO, Aerospike. “As the demand for enterprise-grade database technology grows, we are removing the barriers to access, and our new startup special and trade-in program further this vision.”

The need to engage consumers with cross-channel, real-time, context-driven applications is putting pressure on both enterprises bootstrapped with outdated infrastructure and emerging startups looking to deploy database technology that can grow with them. Aerospike’s newly announced programs bring the fastest NoSQL database to participating organizations by providing access to Aerospike Enterprise Edition and a free one-day developer training.

In today’s always-on world, enterprises need to handle a massive increase in load while eliminating the need for a linear increase in hardware and people. Aerospike unleashes the economics of flash, so businesses can scale to process millions of transactions per second and terabytes of data at a speed 10 times faster than traditional NoSQL databases.

Startup Special

Startups, like Zettata and SmaRTB, recognize that building a business from the ground up requires investing in the right enterprise-grade technology that can scale while helping them compete against established companies. And to do so, they need Aerospike. To continue to power today’s innovative startups, Aerospike’s new startup special offer gives free access to the enterprise Edition of Aerospike with no limits on nodes, TPS and volume of data managed. To qualify, startups must have revenue of under $2 million and funding of under $20 million.
