Recently, XtremeData released its XtremeData dbX Cloud Edition to the AWS Marketplace. With this, customers of Amazon Web Services (News - Alert) (AWS) can now set up huge databases in a matter of minutes.
Amazon Web Services brings together remote computing services to offer a cloud computing platform to its users. It provides online services for various clients for their websites and related Web-based service centers.
XtremeData dbX Cloud Edition has also announced that the company has introduced a new self-service provisioning tool, which helps in creating a virtual data warehouse. Apart from helping users develop unique databases, this edition also helps them in taking these databases down, and quickly.
XtremeData allows users to create warehouse-scale databases, including mixed read-write workloads, tables, complicated ETL, and much more.
Compared to appliance solutions, XtremeData is considered to be extremely affordable, working just as well on standard Linux hardware and Hadoop clusters. According to the company, XtremeData provides large improvements in performance and complete SQL support.
“Data warehousing on the cloud is gaining in popularity even for big data warehouses, yet legacy solutions from IBM (News - Alert), Oracle, and Teradata are unable to scale to meet the necessary enterprise class requirements,” said Mike Lamble, president of XtremeData. “Not only does data warehousing on the cloud mean that the cost will dramatically decline, it also means that the time-to-market and time-to-value is accelerated massively. No more waiting for equipment to be procured, installed [and] tested.”
Recently, the company introduced dbX Cloud Edition, a parallel SQL database engine that makes use of Amazon Web Services. dbX provides improved performance, and offers a full-featured ANSI SQL database.
