VoltDB and Google Cloud are working together on 5G Edge Applications
VoltDB, a leading enterprise data platform that enables fast data decision making, announced that it will join Google Cloud’s 5G Edge / ISV partner initiative. As part of this initiative, VoltDB will make its data management capabilities available in Google Cloud, with Anthos serving as a platform for delivering applications and solutions to the network edge.
“Edge-based organizations often have vast amounts of valuable data from connected devices, sensors, machines, and more,” said Tanuj Raja, Global Head of Strategic Partnerships at Google Cloud. “We look forward to working with VoltDB and making it available its advanced data management capabilities in Google Cloud and Anthos to help businesses get more value from that data and create a smarter network advantage. ”
As global companies increasingly perform their core business functions in the cloud, they have many options for using 5G-based cloud functions on the edge of their networks. To meet this need, Google Cloud unveiled its telecommunications strategy in early 2020 , which includes plans to help communication service providers (CSPs) monetize the edge for business services and to collaborate with partners like AT&T to move Google Cloud functions at the edge provide the AT&T network.
In December 2020, Google Cloud launched its 5G Edge / ISV partner initiative to deliver applications and solutions to the edge of the network with Anthos.
VoltDB is designed to process large amounts of complex data with predictable low latency and without compromising data accuracy. It is the only data platform that enables 5G-based applications to intelligently respond to data in less than 10 milliseconds.
David Flower, CEO of VoltDB , highlighted the value of this partnership, not just for VoltDB and Google Cloud, but for any company that wants to take full advantage of 5G. “Now is the time to invest in 5G and all the technologies that will help you make these investments possible,” said Flower. “For this reason, we are very excited about the partnership with Google Cloud and are making the unique 5G Capable, low-latency functions are much more widely available thanks to this partnership. ”
