I’ve always honored more of an NDA about the H-Store project and its commercialization than I really felt obligated to, given how freely information was being bandied about to others. I’m still doing so.
But I think I’ll at least say that the H-Store project is now named VoltDB. The VoltDB website names two individuals — Mike Stonebraker and Andy Palmer — both of whom are founders of Vertica. Job listings on the site are for field engineer and trainer, but not developer, so that suggests something about the project’s/product’s maturity level.
If you have an extreme OLTP need, you should talk to VoltDB. If you don’t have access to Mike or Andy directly, I can hook you up with a key VoltDB marketing/outreach guy. Price may not be as much of a barrier as you’d initially fear.
If anybody from VoltDB wants to be less cloak-and-daggery and say more in the comment thread, I’d be pleased.
And yes — an open-secret working name for H-Store/VoltDB was, for a while, “Horizontica.”
