Last week, Actian announced the new release of their record-breaking performance database, Vectorwise 2.5, now even more well-equipped to tackle Big Data. Delivering better manageability and faster performance, the new version will help companies realize the value of their data and execute on business opportunities in real time.
In case you’re hearing about Vectorwise for the first time, Vectorwise is Actian’s record-breaking performance database that helps organizations take action on Big Data. Released almost two years ago, the database has made tremendous progress in helping businesses gain new insights and drive operational efficiencies. As the business world developed data solutions at a rapid pace, Vectorwise continued to amaze by achieving record-breaking performance for the TPC-H benchmark, establishing itself as an industry best in speed and affordability.
Vectorwise 2.5 – What’s New?
- Better manageability and faster performance. Vectorwise 2.5 offers faster performance while requiring less hardware than traditional databases. New features such as Predictive Buffer manager further enhance performance on concurrent queries. In-memory updates are now performed at a more granular level for faster and more efficient inserts and updates. In addition, improved Parallel Execution exploits the full potential of multiple CPU cores for faster performance on more types of queries.
- More flexibility. To further enable better manageability, Vectorwise 2.5 allows users to store data in multiple files and locations. Flexible Storage Management enables users to store data on multiple physical locations, providing more flexibility when disk space is running low, while storing more frequently used data on faster disk drives for better accessibility. Unused data can be dropped to limit storage utilization. Vectorwise 2.5 also offers better multi-lingual support with automatic transliteration that extends beyond previous character sets.
- Now bundled with Actian Director. Vectorwise 2.5 introduces new Java-based tools that offer a single management console (GUI) and new interface designed to work with current and previous Vectorwise and Ingres databases. The new Java-based tools are available for Linux and Windows, enabling the flexibility to perform common database administration tasks against multiple environments from a single console.
