Contact Monica [email protected] and mention Founders Space Special.

Aerospike is an open source key-value store: the first flash-optimized in-memory NoSQL database with the speed of Redis, scale of Cassandra, and price/performance of flash. It is used as a session store, cookie store, user profile store, id-mapping store, for fraud detection, dynamic pricing, real-time recommendations, real-time bidding, real-time analytics and personalization of user experiences across mobile apps, websites and portals.

Aerospike customers are startups; some have been bought by Twitter, eBay, Yahoo, or have scaled their businesses. AppNexus became NYC’s first Billion dollar startup by leapfrogging the competition with Aerospike.

Aerospike is open sourced to enable all developers to take advantage of technology that has only been available inside Internet Giants like Google. The Startup Special gives companies free access to the Aerospike Enterprise Edition and free consulting on the best way to design their application.


Aerospike was founded to push the limits of modern processors, storage technologies and distributed systems. Aerospike founders wanted to make scaling easy for all developers, not just the few who worked at companies with deep enough pockets to build their own.

They did what they set out to do. They built the fastest, most reliable database in the world. The first database optimized for flash (patent pending) with a hybrid RAM/flash storage architecture. The first NoSQL database to combine transactions with hot analytics (patent for indexed map reduce) and the first in-memory NoSQL ACID database with strong consistency (ACID Compliant).

Aerospike has run non-stop in production for almost 4 years. It is the gold standard for the most demanding applications – real-time bidding platforms (RTB) and data management platforms (DMP) in ad-tech – the foundation for one-to-one digital marketing across the entire Internet. Companies like AppNexus, BlueKai, Chango, The Trade Desk and [x+1]. In addition, devops engineers are now replacing caching tiers, redis clusters, in-memory databases and first generation NoSQL databases with Aerospike – a database that is as fast as a cache!

The company is headquartered in Mountain View, California with engineering offices in Mountain View and Bangalore, India. Advisors include Don Haderle, father of IBM DB2 and legendary marketing guru Regis McKenna. Investors include NEA, Alsop Louie and Draper & Associates.
