  • Third generation multiplatform mobile and IoT device support, zero-DBA, zero-ETL architecture solution for multiple modes including time-series, transactional, and document-centric 
  • Integrates with a broad spectrum of programming languages including C++, Java, and Python
  • Offers ANSI-compliant SQL and common NoSQL APIs for a single database across a wide range of data types, deployment targets, and projects to reduce risk and streamline operations
  • Runs in Docker containers with Kubernetes orchestration, Helm chart configuration for deployment, and supports multiaccess edge computing
  • Auditing and replication functionality via SQL can be performed in database at the edge
  • Delivers up to a 90 percent increase in overall SQL query performance, zero penalty data updates, no change configuration, and extensive support for legacy file formats
  • New time-series functionality for real-time, automatic collection, auditing, and delivery of data by mobile and IoT devices

Edge data management that locally supports persistent data as well as device to device, device to gateway, and device to the cloud is essential to meeting latency, security, and sovereignty requirements for 5G and MEC environments. Actian’s Zen offering is a database partner for various edge applications optimized for Intel Smart Edge Open to build and provision edge services.
