MariaDB Now Supports Big Data Analytics

Date 2017/1/3 8:22:36 | Topic: Company News

MariaDB® Corporation has announced the general availability of MariaDB ColumnStore 1.0, a powerful open source columnar storage engine. With this release, MariaDB has united transactional and analytic processing with a single front end to deliver an enterprise-grade solution that simplifies high-performance, big data analytics.

Data warehousing and analytics are undergoing massive transformation driven by cloud computing, cost of compute, distributed deployments and big data. But in spite of all the innovation designed to reduce cost and complexity, enterprises continue to be confronted with two imperfect options for big data analytics: build a costly, proprietary data warehouse on premise with vendors like Teradata and Vertica, or get locked into potentially uncontrollable costs with cloud-based solutions like Redshift.

"Data warehouses are famously expensive and complex -- requiring proprietary hardware which makes it nearly impossible to deploy on the cloud, or on commodity hardware. MariaDB ColumnStore makes data analytics more accessible, on premise, in the cloud or in a hybrid deployment," said David Thompson, Vice President of Engineering at MariaDB. "Costing on average 90% less per TB per year than the leading data warehouses1 and offering a scalable solution for the cloud, MariaDB ColumnStore presents a new, open source model for big data analytics that is designed to meet today's enterprise needs."
