Actian, the data and analytics division of HCLSoftware, has launched Actian Zen 16.0, the newest version of its embedded database. To help businesses run faster, smarter applications on the edge, Zen 16.0 is designed for real-time data processing across mobile, IoT devices, edge gateways, and complex machinery.

Actian developed Zen 16.0 to capture the growing demand for edge computing. It introduces performance enhancements and features designed to improve efficiency and functionality.

"Actian Zen16.0 is designed to meet the needs of modern embedded systems and edge computing,” said Emma McGrattan, senior vice president of engineering and product at Actian. “Its secure and scalable design allows for easy data synchronization with Zero-ETL, making it perfect for developers creating intelligent applications that can deliver real-time decisioning from edge to cloud to give a business competitive advantage.”

Zen 16.0 delivers the small footprint with fast read and write access and automatic administration that resource-constrained environments require. Zen16.0 addresses the need to support high-performance intelligent applications with minimal administration, particularly for frequent data update use cases like sensor data collection to monitor patient well-being or asset management tracking using RFID scanners.

Zen 16.0 ensures seamless data synchronization from edge to cloud, supports both SQL and NoSQL data access, and leverages popular programming languages to empower developers in building low-latency embedded applications.

Detailed here, Zen 16.0 includes improved L2 cache sizing, page preload for large data files, Kafka data stream support, EasySync (a new data synchronization utility), enhanced JSON support, Btrieve2 Python package, Docker and Kubernetes container support, and extended index key length.
