We are very excited to share the news that The Automobile Association (AA), the UK’s largest motoring organization, selected Actian Avalanche hybrid cloud warehouse for its insurance business to execute its cloud migration strategy.
The AA is a leading UK automobile insurer and breakdown service provider that provides vehicle insurance, driving lessons, breakdown coverage, loans, and other services to its thousands of customers every day.
When the AA first sought a cloud data warehouse service to power its analytics, high on their list of priorities were fast performance, scalability, and pay-as-you-go subscription pricing. We were confident that Avalanche would be a great fit for the AA’s needs because of Avalanche’s long heritage in analyzing operational data in real-time. This capability would be vital to enabling the AA to provide customized service to their members.
Known for technology innovation, the AA also realized that insurance is a dynamic business that must welcome the flexibility to meet their customers’ needs today and in the future. Avalanche’s hybrid architecture and multi-cloud support will give the AA choice in how and where they deploy. With Avalanche, the AA gains application portability between cloud and on-premises data warehouses.
- High-performance analytic database technology on-prem and in the cloud
- Cloud economics with pay-as-you-go pricing
- Multi-cloud platform support and enterprise-grade security
- The ability to scale compute on demand
The AA’s selection comes on the heels of an authoritative report from GigaOm research, a respected independent industry analyst firm, that identified Avalanche as the clear industry leader on price and performance in an evaluation of leading cloud data warehouse services such as Snowflake and Amazon Redshift.
The AA will be able to process its data science workloads at lightning speed, giving them a definite competitive advantage. Avalanche is in the business of helping organizations attain industry leadership by using data to their advantage—and we are excited to add the AA to the list.
