The EXASOL analytic database is packed with great features that make it the right choice for your BI, reporting, visualization and reporting needs.
Here are the top 12 reasons why you should consider using EXASOL
- In-memory technology
Innovative in-memory algorithms enable large amounts of data to be processed in main memory for dramatically faster access times.
- Column-based storage and compression
Columnar storage and compression reduces the number of I/O operations and amount of data needed for processing in main memory and accelerates analytical performance.
- Massively Parallel Processing (MPP)
EXASOL was developed as a parallel system based on a shared-nothing architecture. Queries are distributed across all nodes in a cluster using optimized, parallel algorithms that process data locally in each node’s main memory.
- High user concurrency
Thousands of users can simultaneously access and analyze large amounts of data without compromising query performance.
Linear scalability lets you to extend your system and increase performance by adding additional nodes.
- Tuning-free database
Intelligent algorithms monitor usage and perform self-tuning tasks, which optimize performance and minimize any data administration overhead.
- Faster access to more data sources
Through a data virtualization framework called “virtual schemas” as well as a high performance data integration framework, you can connect to and analyze data from more sources than ever before.
- Comprehensive support for Hadoop
Hadoop integration has never been so easy. EXASOL supports all native HDFS formats enabling you to perform high-speed analytics against structured and unstructured data faster and easier.
