Splice Machine Seeks Participants for Limited Release Program of SQL-on-Hadoop Database

Splice Machine has announced the launch of its Limited Release program. As part of the program, the company is seeking evaluators to validate use cases, test SQL coverage and benchmark performance, prior to releasing the product for general availability.

"As the only real-time, transactional SQL database built on Hadoop, our product allows application developers and database architects to have the scalability of Hadoop and HBase, the ubiquity of SQL as well as the transactional integrity of an RDBMS," said Monte Zweben, CEO and Co-Founder of Splice Machine. "Our current charter customers are seeing compelling results from our product and we're excited to extend our Limited Release program to 50 additional evaluators."

According to Splice Machine, the product is currently being tested by its charter customers as a replacement for their Oracle, MySQL, or PostgreSQL databases. It is being used as the platform for real-time applications for customers in the consumer marketing, eCommerce, SaaS, and energy trading industries.

Splice Machine says it is looking to work with organizations that  either have an existing Oracle, IBM DB2, MySQL or PostgreSQL database that is not scaling or is too expensive; a Hadoop deployment that needs real-time SQL;  or are considering NoSQL solutions for scale out but would benefit from leveraging their existing SQL people, tools and applications. Companies must also have a specific use case to address, preferably one that requires real-time updates, such as real-time applications or operational analytics.
