Aerospike Database 7 was hailed as the 2024 In-memory Database of the Year by the Data Breakthrough Awards in the infrastructure and compute category. For the second time in three years,  the Aerospike multi-model NoSQL database walked away with an award recognizing the best companies and solutions in the era of digital data.

Why Aerospike for in-memory? 

Most Aerospike implementations utilize our Hybrid Memory Architecture™ (HMA) storage engine to optimize performance and scale (which indexes in memory with data persisted to SSD). However, a robust 30% of our 250+ customers use Aerospike as an in-memory database.

Enterprises traditionally turn to in-memory databases for sub-millisecond performance. But they’re often brittle, slow to recover, and a hassle to manage and scale. With Aerospike, enterprises get resilient in-memory applications on a modern, real-time database without compromising on speed, scale, or reliability — while using a fraction of the hardware and development effort of other offerings.

Unified storage engine is a breakthrough for in-memory databases

Many of the breakthroughs in Aerospike Database 7 transform in-memory use cases. This starts with a new unified storage engine format for in-memory, all-flash, and hybrid memory models, giving customers maximum flexibility and cost efficiencies no matter which model they choose.

The unified storage engine delivers a host of benefits, ranging from warm restarts, faster in-memory operations, and in-memory compression to save space and lower costs. All this makes for a superior in-memory database that can restart quickly, is more memory efficient, and benefits from the stability and resiliency of a mature, mission-critical, real-time database. 

Joins NoSQL database of the year and other awards

This is the second Data Breakthrough Award for Aerospike. In 2022, Aerospike was named NoSQL Database of the Year. Our virtual award shelf is getting a bit crowded (humble brag) with recognition from many industry accolades ranging from CRN’s “Tech Innovators” and “Coolest Database Companies” to the Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Companies to Deloitte Technology Fast 500.
