What is Actian X?

Actian X is a hybrid transactional/analytics processing database with record-breaking performance. Its architecture supports both row-based and columnar storage formats using Ingres, an ultra-reliable enterprise transactional database, and Vector’s X100 analytics engine. This combination allows organizations to perform transaction processing and operational analytics easily and efficiently within a single database.
