LOS ANGELES, CA, April 3rd, 2011 – Actian Corporation today announced it has entered the Rackspace® Hosting partner program to bring the power and analytical performance of Vectorwise to the cloud.

Many companies are limited in being able to deploy complex systems to manage their big data by the size of their IT budgets.

Presented as a family of offerings ranging from small data set sizes of 100GB to larger data sets of 10TB, the Vectorwise Cloud will combine all the flexibility of Rackspace’s leading on-demand infrastructure with the blazing performance and affordability of Vectorwise.

“We’re committed to providing the flexible, on-demand computing environments that organizations demand,” said Andy Schroepfer, Vice President of Enterprise Strategy at Rackspace. “It’s not enough for organizations to be able to store their data – they also need to be able to make sense of it, and Vectorwise Cloud can nowprovide them with a combination of affordability and performance in the cloud.”

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 of data. Since it was launched in June 2010, Vectorwise has successfully achieved performance increases in commercial deployments of 70x that of existing databases by utilizing the latent processing power in modern hardware.

“Today’s businesses simply can’t be limited by inflexible IT infrastructures because the reality is that their data is always moving,” said Fred Gallagher, general manager of Actian Vectorwise. “Vectorwise already addresses the market’s need for powerful and affordable solutions for getting insight from your data, and by combining it with Rackspace’s unparalleled flexibility and Fanatical Support®, businesses finally have a solution that can help meet all their needs.”
