SAND Technology Inc. announced the general availability of release 3.1 of its high-performance SAND Analytic Server. The SAND Analytic Server is an optimized platform for business intelligence (BI) systems integration and for building and deploying large-scale analytic applications. Release 3.1 augments the proven scalability and query speed of previous versions of the Nucleus data management technology on which it is based, by significantly enhancing the speed of loading and updating data for analysis as well as adding further support for open industry-standard BI tools through more flexible ODBC connectivity. OLE DB and JDBC connectivity are also available.

"Our research suggests that enterprises tend to polarize around the issue of how to improve or maintain the performance of analytic applications as user and data volumes increase," said Doug Laney, Vice President with META Group. "That is, they either forego analytic capabilities or they layer additional standard hardware. An alternate to addressing the problem with the brute-force hardware approach, is to consider alternate data management approaches such as specialized DBMSs designed specifically for analytics."
