The Database is Important Again for Meeting Business Needs
Whether an ISV developer, OEM technical architect, or a system architect providing solutions internal to your organization, exploding data, greater integration of transaction systems across departments, evolving analysis needs, and increased pressure to deliver insights faster have all made the database the focus, often above the analysis and reporting tools.
What this means for the data warehouse database is that it has to simultaneously handle exponential data growth and the exponential decline in query response that inhibits timeliness of decisions that can affect the top line, bottom line, and customer growth and satisfaction.
InfiniDB Enterprise is Calpont’s next generation analytic database for data warehousing and near real-time analytics. It simultaneously addresses the challenge of extreme data growth, while providing fast query response at any scale of data. Its fully distributed, MPP architecture columnar design ensures that your (or your customer’s) BI and analytics needs can be met, even as business demands grow.
To Migrate or Not? That’s the Question
The big question when augmenting or replacing data warehousing database technology (or any technology for that matter), is what’s involved in migrating?
InfiniDB Enterprise is easy to install and populate using its high speed data loader, cpimport, which can load as much as 1 million rows of data every second. For organizations that could not previously reach a query result set because their “big data” loads timed out before completing, this InfiniDB capability alone has often justified a switch.
Further, InfiniDB can completely absorb the analytic metadata already created for your existing data warehouse or mart environment, eliminating another level of complexity in migration.
Lastly, InfiniDB requires little manually tuning, and often times none, as it has a built-in management, monitoring, and alerting system that provides an easy mechanism for maintenance, including both the database and operating system. Alerts can be configured so that an administrator can be notified of issues that may threaten either the performance or availability of the system. These alerts can be delivered in a number ways, including to trouble ticketing systems.
With InfiniDB, less time will be spent on installation, configuration and tuning than with any other analytic database product available. See for yourself. Try InfiniDB today.
