TechCrunch is reporting that Apple recently acquired FoundationDB, a company that specializes in fast and cost-effective database software. According to FoundationDB’s website, the company’s software can perform a whopping 14.4 million random writes per second. And all this at just 1 penny per 3.6 million database writes.
