Actian Partners with ScaleMP to Deliver Very Large Analytic Database Capabilities for Big Data
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Actian Corporation, creators of Vectorwise, the innovative performance
analytic database, has formed a strategic alliance with ScaleMP, the
provider of vSMP Foundation virtualization software. vSMP Foundation
aggregates individual servers to create a virtual symmetric
multiprocessor (SMP) spanning across machine boundaries. Actian will now
be able to supply the most demanding customers with databases that can
grow to terabytes (TB) of data which utilizes the aggregated memory.
Data in memory typically can be accessed up to 100x faster than having
to retrieve the information from hard disk drives and up to 10x faster
than flash. For maximum performance, it is critical to keep as much data
in memory as possible and vSMP Foundation from ScaleMP allows for Actian
to accomplish this.
The Vectorwise analytic database delivers record-breaking performance on
industry standard hardware without tuning. This disruptive combination
of high-performance and affordability is helping companies in all
industries drive unprecedented new business value at a fraction of the
cost of other leading solutions.
The Vectorwise and ScaleMP solution enables customers to access very
large amounts of information quickly. With the innovative architecture
of Vectorwise, combined with the ability to transparently access many
terabyes of data, users will see increased performance and have access
to more complete data and perform faster analytics.
"We are extremely excited to bring Vectorwise's raw performance to
customers' massive analytic databases using ScaleMP's vSMP Foundation",
stated Steve Shine,�CEO and President of Actian.
"Organizations world-wide will be able to analyze extremely large
amounts of data with the enhncement of the Actian Vectorwise product
combined with vSMP Foundation from ScaleMP", said Shai Fultheim,
founder, president and CEO of ScaleMP. "Customers will be able to speed
up their analytics and workflows in order to gain more insight by
storing more of their critical data in main memory".
