Macrometa has some hardcore computer science behind it, based as it is on research about conflict-free replicated data types (CRDTs), where a network can be replicated and updated concurrently, while maintaining consistency – “it’s conflict free!”. Riak by Basho was the first well known data store that supported CRDT, and was well known for its rock solid performance and consistency.
Macrometa, the creators of a Global Data Network for application and API developers, has been named a “Cool Vendor” in the October 9, 2019 report titled, Cool Vendors in Communications Service Provider Business Operations* by Kosei Takiishi, Ramesh Marimuthu, Peter Liu, Jouni Forsman, Sylvain Fabre, Michael Porowski, and Monica Zlotogorski at Gartner, Inc.
