MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
BitYota, a new Silicon Valley-based start-up, today emerged from stealth
mode by unveiling its data warehouse-as-a-service on Amazon Web Services (News - Alert)
(AWS) at the inaugural AWS re:Invent Conference. Hand selected by AWS to
be spotlighted at the conference, BitYota is designed to run on cloud
infrastructure without compromising functionality or scalability.
BitYota's service will first be available on Amazon Web Services (AWS)
with expansion plans in the future.
Built from the ground up, BitYota unites the feature-rich functionality
of a full-scale data warehouse with the flexibility and
cost-effectiveness of Amazon's cloud infrastructure empowering any
company to unleash the value of their data to gain insights and make
better business decisions.
"Companies across every spectrum have an undeniable need to use data to
unlock new sources of economic value but relatively few companies have
invested sufficient time, money or people to do this right," said Dev
Patel, CEO, BitYota. "We believe that data and analytics should be
broadly accessible to everyone inside the company and it shouldn't take
a fortune to analyze data. I'm proud to say today BitYota launched a
data warehouse as-a-service that allows just that. We are a
cost-effective, self-managing and intuitive service that empowers users
to work with their own data in familiar ways, with little retooling or

patent-pending massively parallel analytics engine enables analysis
over the "fresh," full-detail data. It works within the existing
ecosystem of programming languages and BI tools; supports SQL92
natively and also integrates via an industry-standard ODBC API with

"A key focus area for AWS is to help companies get started by offering a
technology infrastructure with no capital expense and low pay as you go
pricing, and providing a technology platform with a broad functionality
and global scale," said Ariel Kelman, Head of Worldwide Marketing,
AWS.�"This year, at the first AWS re:Invent conference, we have pushed
'getting started' to a new level by creating a dynamic, live stage
environment for start-up companies to launch publicly for the first
time. We're excited to have BitYota participate and launch their next
generation data warehouse-as-a-service on AWS."
"Agnitus' gaming model consists of multiple games that are tailored to
the individual learning habits of each child. Before BitYota, it was
incredibly challenging to extract meaningful data to understand how
children are progressing as they play," said Lance Vikaros, Executive
Director of Education at Agnitus, a leading developer of touch enabled
learning apps for children. "BitYota enables us to fully customize data
queries directly, making it easy to generate reports anytime and
anywhere the company needs. Fast, customized reporting means that I can
focus less on data management and more on understanding how to improve
our games to better support children's success in school."
