Competitive advantages

Supporting the following application requirements:

  • Contextual: complete data layer comprising of database - including graph, search, and analytics - to instantly serve relevant information and experiences with every interaction.
  • Always-on: not simply "high availability", but continuous availability without complexity and cost of multiple systems for replication and failover
  • Real-time: meet business-critical instant requirements, no matter workload demands or location
  • Distributed: achieve highest workload requirements no matter the location, with the ability to span data centers, cloud regions, and hybrid cloud
  • Scalable: scales linearly and predictably. Scale out with commodity hardware or efficiently scale up with compute-intensive hardware
  • Built-in support for multi and hybrid cloud. A single database/cluster can span all major cloud providers and on-premise installations, which provides complete data independence.
Typical application scenariosApplications that must serve contextual information and be always-on, distributed, real-time, and scalable with the following use cases:
Customer 360, Personalization and Recommendations, Loyalty Programs, Consumer Fraud Protection, eCommerce, Inventory Management, Asset Monitoring, Supply Chain Management, Logistics, Security & Compliance and Identity Management.
Key customersCapital One, Cisco, Comcast, eBay, McDonald's, Microsoft, Safeway, Sony, UBS, and Walmart
