Actian Introduces Avalanche Cloud Data Warehouse

Actian, a hybrid data management, analytics and integration company, is launching the Actian Avalanche cloud data warehouse, a fully managed service solution available on the AWS cloud platform.

This third-generation, cloud data warehouse delivers breakthrough levels of speed, flexibility, and economics designed to make it easier for companies to deploy and scale data analytics services in the cloud.

This need for faster insights to guide real-time decision making is driving a shift from traditional approaches to a new generation of operational data warehouses that deliver real-time insights for a diverse range of workloads.

Actian Avalanche’s FlexPath technology is designed to deliver computing resource elasticity enabling organizations, based on business needs, to scale back compute resource consumption by as much as 85 percent resulting in significant cost savings.

“Momentum has been building over the last several years for new analytics and data management solutions in the cloud, but customers have run into challenges using current solutions,” said Rohit De Souza, CEO and President of Actian. “There is a major opportunity to deliver transformative technology to power an entirely new generation of cloud data warehouses to replace traditional solutions that are fundamentally tapped out and alleviate the challenges of new demanding BI, advanced analytics and machine learning workloads.”

Actian Avalanche relies on the Actian’s patented X100 analytics query engine technology designed to deliver linear performance improvement at scale.

Combined with Actian’s comprehensive portfolio of analytic database solutions, the company is uniquely positioned to address data analytic needs in the cloud, on-premise or a combination of both.

Actian Avalanche provides numerous benefits such as:

  • Performance at Scale: Powers real-time insight for your most demanding queries
  • Ease of use: Deploy Avalanche from AWS Marketplace within minutes
  • Fully Managed Service: Fully managed so you can focus on delivering superior insight
  • Flexibility: Use only the compute resources you need, when you need them
  • Breakthrough Economics: Industry leading price performance, over nine times better than cloud data warehouse market alternatives, can save organizations millions
