NoSQL Object Database
What is Actian Versant?
Versant’s NoSQL object technology enables software developers to handle database requirements for extremely complex object models with ease and is used by the world’s largest companies for applications with very large scale data management requirements. Versant doesn’t need mapping code to store or retrieve objects, so schema modifications can be handled without application downtime. Fault tolerance, synchronous and asynchronous replication, high availability and excellent scalability make Versant ready for the enterprise.
Code Less, Conceive More, Run Faster

“With the Versant Object Database, we now have a technology at our fingertips that has significantly simplified our work. The data obtained from the satellite is available in the Versant database on the same day. Faster and better understanding of the instrument data results in more efficient operation of the satellite, which ultimately means more and better scientific information.”
– Dr. Johannes Riedinger, Herschel Mission Manager, European Space Agency (ESA)
Network Route Optimization
Large telecommunications companies use Versant JPA to run route optimization algorithms in the Data Services function of their Operating Support Systems (OSS). The key benefit is the ability to handle very complex networks for relationships, with orders of magnitude faster traversal and identification of patterns to produce more optimized routing.
Medical and scientific companies use Versant to manage metadata and telemetry information from instruments, providing time-critical access to complex relational data that is best represented in an object model. VOD provides the persistence, data integrity, abstraction, and replication required to ensure applications can manage, navigate and access complex data structures.
Retailers, online services, and financial services companies use Versant to manage and search large volumes of data for rare patterns that identify unauthorized transactions or access to protect their business and customers. Using rules-based pattern recognition and advanced statistical methods, these applications rely on Versant to be highly configurable, customizable, and scalable to deal with rapid changes in strategy and rules to react to evolving threats.
Publishers use Versant Object Database as the NoSQL data manager for all of the content within their content management systems. VOD handles complex schemas of structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data objects that represent the different content and metadata, delivering a flexible and responsive system that can evolve over time to handle new data types and schemas.
The performance and object orientation of the Versant database is a perfect fit for real time simulation and modeling systems. Versant supports high performance object data ingestion and retrieval, and provides developer tools that are easier to use compared to a traditional SQL database. Versant has been used for reservoir simulations for oil exploration as well as weather simulations for government and commercial applications.
