First-ever appliance from Vectorwise now available for 100GB and 1TB, demonstrates ease-of-use and lower costs

BOSTON, September 13, 2012Actian Corporation today announced the general availability of the Vectorwise Data Mart Appliance powered by Lenovo at the Big Data Innovation Summit in Boston, combining Lenovo’s industry leading ThinkServer RD630 hardware with Actian’s record-breaking Vectorwise analytic database software. The availability of the Vectorwise Data Mart Appliance powered by Lenovo will be available for both 100 gigabyte (GB) and 1 terabyte (TB) data solutions with pricing starting at only $42,999. *

When data volume and varieties of data increase, traditional databases often become slow and expensive. As enterprises and mid-market companies develop new real-time business systems at a rapid pace, data infrastructure becomes more important to companies seeking to analyze the growing volume and variety of business data. The combination of Lenovo and Actian’s analytic database, Vectorwise, will help organizations analyze and monetize their big data faster while requiring less hardware and virtually no database tuning. Vectorwise delivers a generational leap in performance by leveraging the latest features in Intel’s x86 CPUs, allowing for record-breaking performance, lower pricing and better efficiency. Now that performance is available as an appliance making it one of the best values in high-performance computing in the market.

The Vectorwise Data Mart Appliance powered by Lenovo is simple to install and can be up and running within minutes, providing companies with faster time-to-value. Extremely affordable, pre-tuned and balanced-configured to reduce data mart deployment costs, the appliance is available for both 100GB and 1TB solutions.

“The Vectorwise database engine, in conjunction with the Lenovo ThinkServer platform, offers an affordable suite of appliances that enable mid-market companies and enterprise departments to quickly access and analyze data,” said Fred Gallagher, general manager of Vectorwise, Actian Corporation. “It underlines our commitment to provide superior solutions that allow customers to drive faster time to business value and build competitive advantage with real-time business insight.”

Vectorwise is one of the most significant database technology innovations of the last twenty years and meets broad business demands to analyze the exploding volumes and varieties of data. Written from the ground up to utilize the latent processing power in modern hardware, Vectorwise delivers dramatically higher data processing rates than many other relational databases. Since its launch in June 2010, Vectorwise has achieved performance increases surpassing 70X of existing databases—without the need for tuning, indexing and materialized view strategies.
