Actian/Lenovo Team for Vectorwise Appliance

Subscribe to our newsletter

Actian and Lenova have announced the Vectorwise Data Mart Appliance, a hardware/software appliance aimed at hosting big data analytics.  The package combines Actian’s Vectorwise columnar database, which has been tuned to run on Lenovo’s ThinkServer platform.

Vectorwise has been written to leverage vector-based parallel processing and on-chip cache memory, which is faster to access than RAM.  Meanwhile, the ThinkServer RD240 is a rack-mountable Intel-based server combined with up to 16TB of disk.

The collaboration emulates moves by Oracle and EMC’s Greenplum unit, both of which have produced appliance offerings, designed to provide easier-to-deploy, lower-TCO packages tuned to specific business workloads.

Actian was formerly known as Ingres, before a September 2011 corporate rebranding.  As well as Vectorwise, it continues to sell the Ingres relational database as well as a platform for delivering cloud-based applications.
