Frisco, TX and Hamburg, Germany – March 11, 2011 – Calpont Corporation, a leading provider of high-performance analytic databases, announced today that it has signed a strategic partnership with Uniique Corporation of Hamburg, Germany. At the core of the agreement is Uniique will work with Calpont to be a strategic partner for the marketing, sales and support of the Calpont database solution, InfiniDB Enterprise, throughout Central Europe.
InfiniDB is a column oriented database (CDBMS) that is specifically designed for analytics and high performance computer processing. It overcomes query limitations that exist in traditional relational database management systems (RDBMS) by storing, managing, and querying data based on columns rather than rows. Because only the necessary columns in a query are accessed rather than entire rows, input/output (I/O) activities, as well as overall query response times, can be reduced dramatically.
Specific features of InfiniDB that will benefit Uniique’s customers include efficient technologies such as map-reducing, automatic compression, partitioning, and a multi-node architecture that make InfiniDB ideal for use in demanding environments which require large data sets and rapid speed for queries. InfiniDB uses a familiar MySQL application interface and provides an easy integration framework for working with existing business intelligence (BI) and data warehouse scenarios.
"The effective cooperation with Calpont enables us to offer our customers a proven and high performing database solution at a fractional cost of traditional database management systems. Our licensing model is also very user friendly with a view to scaling and data growth. The joint solution provides customers with a high level of transparency, predictability and outstanding performance to more effectively to run their business,” says Christian Niemann, CEO at Uniique.
