ParAccel Database Update to Focus on Analytics, Performance
ParAccel announces plans for Version 2.5 of the ParAccel database, which will be released later in 2010 with a number of enhancements to boost performance.Data warehousing vendor ParAccel is putting an emphasis on high-performance analytics in the upcoming version of its database appliance. According to the company, when it releases ParAccel Database Version 2.5 in the second quarter of 2010, it will be armed with a number of enhancements designed to improve performance. For starters, ParAccel's advanced query optimizer, Omne, has been enhanced to "allow automatic decorrelation of ... broader ranges of embedded subqueries to further simplify and accelerate the development of analytic applications," ParAccel said Feb. 21.
"First it eliminates some barriers that as you're developing analytic apps you always have to be cognizant of, barriers essentially around query complexity," explained Rick Glick, ParAccel vice president of Technology and Architecture. "For example, we can handle skip level decorrelation query patterns, which is I believe unique to us. Secondly, by avoiding bad plans and always having consistently great performance we dramatically reduce the amount of physical design work and modeling that an analytic app developer goes through."
