The best data analysis is a key component that gives companies a competitive edge in data-driven economy. Take advantages of Exasol in-memory analytical database and get future-proof and high performance solution for next decade and beyond.

When dealing with data one should not overlook Exasol, a high-performance, in-memory database specifically designed for in-memory analytics. Massively parallel processing dramatically speeds up advanced analytics in business-critical applications. It enables you to analyse large data volumes in real-time and accelerating BI and reporting solutions. Companies using Exasol are able to make better decisions faster, and they improve their business and profits.

Certain data crunching devices that were popular in the past, such as Netezza, have hit a roadblock or suffered even worse scenario – with no further upgrades or support cancellations users simply cannot count on them anymore. IBM announced the end of Netezza’s development and also end of support for specific models. In these cases, users need to find new solutions and perform migrations into a new environment. Global trends are favoring transitions to software solutions that operate on a standard information infrastructure or in the cloud.

Exasol is a secure and long-term solution, backed by strong development and excellent user support. It’s a software product that runs on standard servers, cloud or in hybrid environments. This is simplifying deployment and maintenance and delivering significant cost reductions. Since Exasol solution is totally scalable, adding new resources is a breeze. Its intelligent algorithms control usage and perform self-adjusting tasks that optimise efficiency and reduce data management costs. Exasol is therefore an affordable, easy and secure solution for analysing big data with an excellent TCO and ROI ratios.

Main Advantages of Exasol: Innovative, Super-fast and Flexible

Exasol’s innovative in-memory algorithms enable processing of large amounts of data in the main memory delivering dramatically faster access times. Virtualization called “Virtual Schemes” enable you to connect and analyse data from more sources than ever before. Columnar storage and compression reduce the number of I/O operations and amount of data needed for processing in main memory. This increase analytical performance even further. In addition, thousands of users can simultaneously access and analyze large amounts of data without compromising query performance.

One of the key advantages of Exasol is also its flexibility, as it can be used by companies in many different ways – it supports any business model. Choose the option that best meets your needs: software-only, analytical appliance or the cloud (ExaCloud, Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services). Hybrid implementation is also possible.
