Volt Active Data | January 18, 2023
On January 17, 2023, Volt Active Data, an emerging provider of in-memory database platforms to support applications that require consistency, speed, and scale, announced the unveiling of Active Streaming Decisions (Active(SD)™, an ultra high-speed decision-making engine, enabling companies to use the power of the Volt Active Data Platform to issues that other Kafka ecosystem solutions cannot solve.
With its foundation in the already combat-tested and proven Volt Active Data architecture, Active(SD) quickly utilize event data directly from Kafka topic areas as the data is generated and where the data is generated, leveraging advanced analytics and machine learning to reveal insights and make instantaneous, mission-critical decisions, which are then reverted back to Kafka so an action can be taken while the data (and resulting action) still remains appropriate.
Volt CEO David Flower said, "This is a tremendous opportunity for companies to finally be able to easily add intelligent decisioning to Kafka data streams and thereby fully capitalize on the massive amount of valuable data that Kafka streams into systems."

There are a number of ways to use data from Kafka for further processing down the line, such as loading it into a warehouse or data lake for offline processing and reporting. However, Active(SD) is the only product built specifically to optimize event-time, in-stream decisions in less than ten milliseconds to drive real-time actions consciously. This makes it the fastest way for Kafka-powered applications to go from event to action.
