Actian Avalanche:
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.

Watch Architecture Overview Weekly Live Demo

“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

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


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-premise and across multiple clouds, including AWS and Azure.

Migrate your apps and data to the cloud at your own pace:

  • Retain legacy on-premise applications for as long as you need
  • SQL solution makes it easy to leverage existing skill sets
  • Gain all the benefits of cloud deployment, such as elastic and independent scaling of compute and storage

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.


Cut Your Bill in Half Terms and Conditions

Actian will cut your Snowflake bill in half by comparing identical data warehouse workloads. The cost comparison is based on our Avalanche Enterprise Edition pricing and Snowflake’s published Enterprise list price running identical workloads as of 4/22/2020.

Savings can come from multiple factors as determined during your personalized Avalanche assessment.

  1. Compute price-performance
  2. Inclusion of Actian’s Avalanche Connect to replace tool connectivity to SaaS and legacy on-prem applications
  3. Inclusion of hybrid data warehouse footprint – On-premise, in the cloud, or any combination of the two

All workload assessments shall be evaluated based on Avalanche Unit (AU) requirements, compressed storage and workload processing time. ETL (load-time) and on-premise data warehouse components will also be included.

For organizations already in Snowflake we will ask you to provide documentation of associated Snowflake costs incurred, as well as performance data.

For organizations in “Proof of Concept” stages without production deployment, Actian and Snowflake workloads will be measured using identical workloads in a “Proof of Value.”

Actian reserves the right to refuse any use-case deemed not appropriate for the Avalanche Hybrid Cloud Data Warehouse environment. Guarantee is valid with contracts signed by 12/31/2020. Avalanche terms apply.
