Actian Launches Industry-First Real-Time Connected Cloud Data Warehouse Solution

PALO ALTO, Calif. – April 22, 2020Actian, the leader in hybrid cloud data warehousing and data integration, today announced its Avalanche™ Real-Time Connected Data Warehouse Solution with support for AWS and Azure cloud platforms. The Actian hybrid solution is the industry’s first and only cloud data warehouse to offer complete integration capabilities natively built into the product. It enables enterprises to rapidly and inexpensively harness their diverse data sources for use in high-performance analytics, both in the cloud and on-premises.

Actian’s Avalanche Real-Time Connected Data Warehouse was designed for these unprecedented times of business uncertainty, during which real-time decision-making is critical for survival and success. The Actian solution delivers a set of distinctive capabilities that address unique business needs that go beyond a traditional cloud data warehouse such as blazing-fast analytics, real-time data ingestion and a true hybrid architecture that can run in the cloud and on-premises. The result is rapid, impactful decision-making coupled with substantial near-term cost savings.

This innovative solution seamlessly incorporates the key features of Actian’s proven DataConnect™ hybrid data integration offering into Actian Avalanche hybrid cloud data warehouse to deliver comprehensive, native integration functionality. This capability significantly simplifies and accelerates data warehouse deployment and makes administration of this fully managed service a breeze. Further, it virtually eliminates the traditional cost and complexity of managing a standalone data integration product in conjunction with an enterprise data warehouse – something competitor solutions still struggle to achieve. The solution is powered by the Actian Avalanche data warehouse which features Actian’s patented vectorized query engine technology that provides industry-leading responsiveness and price-performance.

“We have to deal with all types of data in the healthcare industry, most of which is distributed across a myriad of systems and sources,” said Rick Fitzgerald, Chief Digital Officer, Ciox Health. “Having a modern hybrid cloud data warehouse with native data integration should help speed up project deployment, simplify the administration and ultimately save money for an organization.”
