Actian Vectorwise Enables Real-time Hadoop Analysis

Vectorwise Hadoop Data Connector Optimizes Analysis of Unstructured Hadoop Data, Creating Actionable Information

Actian Corporation has announced the upcoming release of its bi-directional Hadoop Data Connector at the TDWI World Conference in San Diego, which will enable businesses and enterprises to dramatically drive down the costs of extracting valuable information from their Hadoop data storage. The connector will be available for general download at the end of 2012. The Hadoop Data Connector enables Actian Vectorwise, the record-breaking analytical database, to optimise the analysis of big data with bidirectional data integration. This will allow businesses to quickly take unstructured Hadoop data into Vectorwise creating information and then placing that information back into the Hadoop store or into operational systems. As enterprises, social media companies and businesses develop data solutions at a rapid pace, the data connector will empower companies to alternate between fast, highly concurrent interactive queries in Vectorwise versus bulk Hadoop data analysis.

Vectorwise has pioneered high-performance Hadoop analysis with leading social media companies such as IsCool and NK. The Hadoop Connector takes this one step further by operationalising the ability to constantly move data in near real-time in and out of analysis and into operational systems.

"Our social gaming business generates massive amounts of data and user behavior changes rapidly. We store and process all user-generated data in Hadoop before loading a large portion into the Vectorwise database," said Florian Douetteau, chief technology officer at IsCool Entertainment. "Vectorwise enables the fast analytics required to optimise the user experience and maximise our revenues and the Actian Hadoop connector will it make it even simpler for us to accomplish our goals."

"NK Research's base of over ten million very active users generates a wealth of data that underlies our revenue generation. Hadoop is the most cost-effective way to store all this data reliably," said Edward Mezyk, senior project coordinator at NK Research. "We move vast amounts of data from Hadoop into Vectorwise to achieve the most cost-effective, ultra-fast analytics we need in order to support our business."

"For the past two years, Vectorwise has been helping businesses make tremendous progress in gaining new insights and driving operational efficiencies," said Fred Gallagher, general manager of Vectorwise at Actian Corporation. "Actian Vectorwise is helping companies solve their big data analysis problems in real-time, and now we are bringing that same record breaking performance and price/performance to Hadoop data making it an opportunity of operational competitive advantage. Businesses from finance to social media and beyond can now capitalise on the vision of Hadoop to create business value. We are helping customers to take action on their really big data."
