The Actian Analytics Platform Vortex Edition comprises two core capabilities: Actian Vector in Hadoop – the fastest columnar analytics database for native SQL in Hadoop.
Actian DataFlow in Hadoop – visual data blending & enrichment natively in Hadoop
Actian Vector in Hadoop contains a mature columnar analytics engine that performs native SQL processing of data in HDFS. It has rich SQL language support, an advanced query optimizer, support for trickle updates, and has been certified for use with the most popular BI tools. Plus, it has been benchmarked to perform more than 30 times faster than other approaches to SQL on Hadoop.
By bringing the raw performance of a proven columnar analytics database to the data nodes in the Hadoop Cluster, Actian Analytics Platform Vortex Edition is able to achieve performance levels never before seen with any SQL on Hadoop solution. Actian’s platform can process Hadoop data natively in HDFS an order of magnitude faster than any other SQL on Hadoop solution and provides industrialized SQL access and enterprise class security to HDFS data. Fast SQL access to Hadoop data opens up new opportunities. Think not only about support for larger data sets, more users and more complex workloads, but also the ability to query Hadoop data using standard BI and Reporting tools.
