Hybrid Cloud Data Warehouse Built for Performance
Actian Avalanche is a fully managed hybrid cloud data warehouse service designed from the ground up to deliver high performance and scale across all dimensions – data volume, concurrent user, and query complexity.
Its innovative architecture maximizes compute, memory and disk efficiency and ultimately provides high-speed analytics in less time and at a much lower cost.
With Avalanche, you can do more with less.
“Snowflake’s multi-cluster option is quite expensive as costs multiply rapidly…if users hit Snowflake with a high volume of concurrent query requests, Snowflake will spin up an additional four clusters to handle the workload. This would spike the cost to $320 per hour.”
Gigaom, “Data Warehouse in the Cloud benchmark”, 2019
Watch this “At Home” video with Actian’s SVP of Engineering, Emma McGrattan, to learn how Avalanche’s innovative architecture delivers superior performance at scale—enabling you to cut your cloud data warehouse bill in half.
Your Data Your Way
Avalanche is a true hybrid platform that can be seamlessly deployed and managed on-premises and across multiple clouds, including AWS, Azure and Google Cloud*. You gain all the benefits of a modern cloud deployment such as elastic and independent scaling of compute and storage while retaining the flexibility to keep on-premise applications for as long as you need. Migrate your apps and data to the cloud at your own pace.
Avalanche, with its hybrid federated query capability, empowers you to execute a query across both Avalanche on-premise and cloud data warehouses at the same time without data movement. Intelligent query execution will send the appropriate query subset, process the data in each warehouse, and only return the result set for final assembly and answer. Dramatically increase your query performance by moving compute to where the data lives.
*Q4 2020 support planned.
Rapidly Deploy Using Native Integration
Avalanche is the industry’s first and only cloud data warehouse to offer integration capabilities natively built into the product. It enables you to rapidly and inexpensively harness your diverse data sources for use in high performance analytics, both in the cloud and on-premise.
Avalanche provides connectors and templates for easily sourcing and moving data from SaaS applications to Avalanche data warehouse at scale—no special ETL is required. It also comes with Universal Connect patented technology that enables you to connect any data source or application. Avalanche supports data sources on different operating environments; provides one-time, scheduled and real-time data transfers; offers comprehensive security controls; full audit capabilities; and much more.
