Actian has announced general availability of its Vectorwise 2.5 release, with a continued focus on improved performace for big data applications.
New features include a predictive buffer manager to further enhance performance on concurrent queries. In-memory updates are now performed at a more granular level for faster and more efficient inserts and updates. Also, improved parallel execution exploits the full potential of multiple CPU cores for faster performance on more types of queries.
To further enable better manageability, Vectorwise 2.5 allows users to store data in multiple files and locations. Flexible Storage Management enables users to store data on multiple physical locations, providing more flexibility when disk space is running low, while storing more frequently used data on faster disk drives for better accessibility. Unused data can be dropped to limit storage utilisation.
Actian recently partnered with Lenovo to produce the Vectorwise Data Mart Appliance.
