FoundationDB, the company behind next generation database software that uniquely combines scalability and consistency, today announced version 3.0 of its flagship product, the FoundationDB Key-Value Store. Version 3.0 offers enhanced performance and monitoring capabilities while maintaining transactional integrity, scalability and fault tolerance for operational workloads in the cloud or on premise.

With leading customers like Bede Gaming and Customer.io, FoundationDB has grown as the de-facto choice for those seeking a scalable, ACID compliant transactional database. According to 451 Research skills analysis, FoundationDB was one of the top two fastest growing databases in the last 12 months. 3.0 benefits all users by increasing performance and features across the board, while dramatically increasing scalability, making it applicable for even the biggest, fastest database workloads.

Key Features of Version 3.0:
* Unparalleled performance -- Version 3.0 of the Key Value Store sets a new bar in transactional workload performance. It is the fastest, most scalable, transactional database in the cloud with a 32-machine cluster running on Amazon EC2 sustaining more than 14,000,000 random writes per second.
* All layers benefit -- With FoundationDB's "layered" architecture, the benefits of 3.0's performance and scalability gains translate seamlessly to all layers. This means that SQL, Graph, and even customer's custom layers all get faster, more scalable, and lower latency without any code changes.
* Enhanced centralized monitoring -- 3.0 introduces enhanced centralized database monitoring. These improved tools make it easy for operations teams to manage and run databases in the real world. Rather than just monitoring each machine in the cluster, FoundationDB is able to diagnose dozens of potential hardware bottlenecks centrally and easily integrate that high-level information with existing monitoring infrastructures.
* IoT market expansion -- 3.0 expands FoundationDB's market opportunity to support a new realm of applications for the rising Internet of Things market. IoT applications are often write-intensive, gathering dozens or hundreds of data points per minute from millions of devices. Version 3.0 makes the power of a multi-model, ACID transactional database available to a new set of connected-device applications that are generating data at previously unheard of speed.
