Nokia Selects VoltDB for Cloud Mobility Solutions

By Ken Briodagh April 11, 2017

In a recent release, VoltDB, enterprise-class database developer for business-critical applications, has announced that it has been selected by Nokia to power two enterprise applications in the company’s packet core business. VoltDB will be embedded into the Nokia Cloud Mobility Manager (CMM) and the Cloud Mobile Gateway (CMG) offerings, which are important to the company's global telecoms infrastructure.

VoltDB has built its database to reliably handle hundreds of thousands of write transactions per second without compromising accuracy or performance, and according to the release, that was a factor in its selection, in addition to its ability to do so without DBA support while running on a cluster of generic servers without access to a SAN.

Nokia CMM can be deployed in standard network functions virtualization (NFV) infrastructure environments or on pre-integrated and modular server-based solutions, sharing a common network management system with Nokia packet core functions and enabling Nokia customers to transition to NFV and software-defined networking (SDN). VoltDB also will be embedded in the Nokia Cloud Mobile Gateway (CMG) application, which performs gateway functions within the packet core. CMG will help mobile operators provision for the growth of mobile broadband, deliver new Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine Type Communications (MTC) services, and provide a foundation for 5G.

“Companies like Nokia make long-term investments in their infrastructure to support current and future business initiatives,” said David Flower, President and CEO, VoltDB. “The CMM and CMG offerings are integral to the commitment Nokia has made to supporting emerging technologies, including NFV and 5G. We are delighted Nokia has chosen VoltDB to serve as a core technology for its emerging infrastructure, and further endorses the enterprise capability of our product.”
