May 19, 2008 - ParAccel, Inc announced a pilot program for a new analytic appliance with advanced availability, recoverability and manageability features - The Scalable Analytic Appliance.


The Scalable Analytic Appliance will provide high performance and enterprise-class manageability for large- and medium-sized enterprises struggling with the technical and business challenges of analyzing operational data in near real time or executing increasingly complex queries on multiterabyte data warehouses, according to ParAccel.


The appliance leverages patent-pending features that extend the ParAccel Analytic Database to use a blended and balanced scan approach to take advantage of both server- and SAN-based storage. It will also leverage a new SAN-based approach for high availability and integrate tightly into managed storage control systems to manage backups, disaster recovery mechanisms, reporting and monitoring.


“The ParAccel database manages storage in a columnar manner, which is better suited to enterprise-class storage and generally results in dramatically higher performance for the same price. Until now, customers of analytic database systems had the choice of high performance direct attached storage or the enterprise readiness and manageability of SAN storage,” said Barry Zane, ParAccel’s founder and chief technology officer. “With ParAccel’s blended query processing, customers can have both. Our patent-pending approach allows customers to leverage the management tools and data reliability of SANs and still have the highest performing and most scalable analytic database system on the market.”
