Actian Approaches One Year; Delivers Vectorwise Appliance With Lenovo

Just ahead of the first anniversary of its corporate makeover, Actian has introduced its Vectorwise Data Mart Appliance, in partnership with Lenovo.  Initial models – based on Lenovo’s ThinkServer RD360 server – come in 100 gigabyte and one terabyte flavours.

Formerly known as Ingres, Actian continues to develop and sell the open source transactional database of that name, but its focus for some time has been on Vectorwise, a vector-based analytics database, which leverages specific aspects of x86 chip technology to boost performance.

Launched in the middle of 2010, Vectorwise is also available as a traditional enterprise software installation, and as a cloud service in partnership with Rackspace.  A link between Vectorwise and Hadoop is in the works, set for release later this year.
