Not Convinced Yet? Let Our SVP of Engineering Explain How We Deliver Superior Performance

Watch this “Deep Dive” video with Actian’s SVP of Engineering, Emma McGrattan, to learn how Vector’s innovative architecture delivers superior performance at scale.

For the past 20 years, I’ve been searching for the killer database that would fulfill most of our intense data processing needs and with the discovery of Vector, that search is now over – this database is in a class of its own. Right out of the box, Vector lets us effortlessly plow through millions and millions of rows of data with infinite width and depth and without the need for new expensive hardware, complicated schemas, explicit indexing, pre-aggregation, or specifically hand-crafted DBA-tuned SQL. The Actian leaders and technologists have performed a miracle here.
