Actian, a hybrid data management, analytics, and integration company, today announced the Actian Avalanche cloud data warehouse, a fully managed service solution available on the AWS cloud platform. This third-generation, cloud data warehouse delivers new levels of speed, flexibility, and economics designed to make it easier for companies to deploy and scale data analytics services in the cloud while saving millions over traditional data warehouse solutions.

As enterprises engage in their digital transformation, it’s imperative that they derive more value from their diverse, hybrid data to improve profitability and remain competitive in their industries. However, traditional data analytics solutions have substantial limitations when it comes to complexity, cost, and performance. Similarly, first-generation cloud solutions have experienced challenges in areas of concurrency, performance at scale, and resource optimization.

Many organizations, while embracing the cloud, still critically need to address their hybrid data legacy on premises as well as compliance requirements.

Gen III Cloud Data Warehouse Solution

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. Companies need the enterprise-class performance and security capabilities of a data warehouse, combined with the elasticity of the cloud, to create a new generation of data-driven insights. 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.

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 analytics database solutions, the company addresses data analytics needs in the cloud, on premises, or a combination of these.

Actian Avalanche overcomes limitations of previous generations of cloud data warehouses by providing:

  • 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: Price performance may be over nine times better than cloud data warehouse market alternatives, saving organizations millions
