Actian’s new Avalanche data warehouse will leverage the capabilities of AWS, providing real-time insights across multiple workloads.

Hybrid data management provider Actian announced its next-generation data warehouse, Avalanche, this week. The new fully managed solution is available on the Amazon Web Services cloud platform.

“Momentum has been building over the last several years for new analytics and data management solutions in the cloud, but customers have run into challenges using current solutions,” said Rohit De Souza, CEO and President of Actian.

“There is a major opportunity to deliver transformative technology to power an entirely new generation of cloud data warehouses to replace traditional solutions that are fundamentally tapped out and alleviate the challenges of new demanding BI, advanced analytics and machine learning workloads.”

Avalanche is built on Actian’s X100 analytics query engine technology, the company’s patented framework for most of its analytics solutions. Data management, analytics and integration can all be performed with the service.

“Enterprises are being driven to get more value out of their data by enabling faster, more actionable insights that drive better business outcomes. This trend is fueling a market need for a new generation of operational data warehouses that are simple to use and deliver real-time insights at scale, without the traditional data lake performance penalties,” said Jim Curtis, Senior Analyst for the Data Platforms and Analytics Channel at 451 Research.

“Actian has recognized this need by concentrating on price/performance benefits with its next generation of cloud data warehouse and on-premise analytics offerings.”
