New-age Transactional Systems - Not Your Grandpa's OLTP



John Hugg discusses high volume transaction processing applications with high and low frequency profiles, and how VoltDB can be used for that purpose.


John Hugg has spent his entire career working with databases and information management. At the start of 2008, he was lured away from a Ph.D.program by Mike Stonebraker to work on what became VoltDB. He helped build H-Store, VoltDB’s research prototype, and the world-class engineering team at VoltDB to continue development of the open source and commercial products.
