CHICAGO, IL, Jan 15, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Billions of sensors and connected devices -- like smart meters and
servers -- generate billions of data points each millisecond, and
much of this data is time series, or data indexed in order by time.
Storage and analysis of time series data has posed a problem for
developers; general-purpose databases like MySQL and MongoDB break as
data volume increases. TempoDB (http://tempo-db.com) is the first
purpose-built time series database service, making this type of big
data easy to manage -- and just in time. Experts estimate in 10 years
there will be 50 billion connected devices, and total data creation
is set to increase by 44x.
In the past 6 months, TempoDB has seen 100x usage increases across
industries including oil and gas, smart grid and energy management,
internet of things, server/network infrastructure, renewable energy,
medical devices, and finance. "Massive amounts of data are an
incredible opportunity to better learn from the past, understand the
present and predict the future; but first we need the right
purpose-built tools," says Co-Founder and CEO, Andrew Cronk
TempoDB is the purpose-built time series database service to solve
the three biggest time series data challenges:
1.) Billions of time series data points are either downsampled or
thrown away after a set period of time due to a lack of long-term
storage solutions. TempoDB customers store and analyze unlimited time
series data starting at only $100/month for more accuracy and faster
realization of trends and insights.
2.) With a general purpose database, more data storage means longer
waiting periods for data retrieval; at large volumes, this could mean
hours or even days of waiting for a query to return. TempoDB offers
"Constant Query Speed," so whether TempoDB is storing 1 million data
points or 10 billion, queries are returned at consistent, predictable
speed. Save hours of time and frustration.
3.) Non-hosted time series databases require companies to manage
their own server infrastructure, which is not always a competency.
TempoDB's time series database is offered as-a-service. With a
developer-friendly REST API, 3x data replication, and geographically
distributed backups, it is easy to implement and secure with no
TempoDB customers have successfully stored billions of data points
from millions of connected devices. Customers including Server
Density, Ninja Blocks, Signal and sMeasure, along with many others in
the sensor, smart meter, server and energy industries are leveraging
this new time series database-as-a-service. With TempoDB, companies
discover new ways to save resources, create opportunities, and
improve the quality of their goods or services.
TempoDB is the time series database service, purpose-built to store
and analyze billions of data points from billions of sensors and
connected devices. It is the only infrastructure-as-a-service time
series database, and is being leveraged by enterprise and small
business alike. Founded by Andrew Cronk, Justin DeLay and Mike Yagley
