VoltDB displaces MySQL to deploy NewSQL database at Novatel Networks data center

VoltDB today announced that VoltDB displaced MySQL as the enabling technology and deployed the NewSQL database in Novatel Networks’ data center.

MySQL will be the enabling technology for Novatel’s carrier-grade VoIP call routing, delivering the high-velocity data ingestion, transactional capabilities and scale required to make routing decisions in real time based on very complex incoming data.

“Our system was initially architected with MySQL, which presented a major operational burden and offered limited scale,” said Ari Gorman, CTO, Novatel Networks.

“VoltDB is a fault tolerant database that enables us to manage extreme velocity data streams and call volumes. We are getting incredible performance with VoltDB that isn’t possible with more traditional systems. As a result, we are able to deliver a remarkably competitive on premise and Cloud-based, high-capacity SIP solution,” Gorman added.

VoltDB is queried to return least-cost SIP call routing results based on the number dialed after going through a procedure to determine the least cost route. This machine-to-machine activity results in millions of transactions and allows Novatel to pick the lowest cost carrier and route calls tens of thousands of times per second.
