Volante Technologies, a global leader in the provision of innovative financial data integration, today announced that it has enhanced Volante Designer version 5.0 to support the Hadoop® framework.
“ParStream is a columnar database with a hybrid in-memory storage and a shared nothing architecture. Based on patented algorithms for indexing and compressing data, Parstream uniquely combines three core features: Analyzing billions of records in sub seconds, continuous fast import with up to 1 million rec/s and a flexible, interactive analytics engine with a SQL interface.”
“Our architecture permits tens of thousands of SSDs to be connected together and accessed in a parallel and concurrent way using direct mapping of memory accesses from a local machine to the I/O bus and memory of a remote machine. This feature allows for data transmission between local and remote system memories without the use of operating system services. It also enables a unique linear scalability of SSDs bandwidth and IOPS and consequently allows computation and data access to scale together linearly. This totally eliminates the bottleneck in bandwidth or IOPS and provides optimal dimensions of performance, capacity, and computation with an unmatched flexibility at a fraction of the costs.”
“This industry has been racing for latency, and no one has really won except hardware vendors. It’s been three years of pain and probably more to come for many. Now, the industry needs technology to be safer, more reliable, and more focused on performance. Lucera is acutely focused on each of these, while finally adding democratization to the world of infrastructure. We allow firms to focus on what really matters – what adds value to their business – while we uncover their operational alpha and decrease latency across the board.”
“Datameer is all about providing a self-service, end-to-end experience for big data analytics on Hadoop. From data integration to analytics to visualization, we are wizard-led, point-and-click. Most recently we announced our Smart Analytics module, which allows business users to use data mining algorithms through a drag and drop UI. These new capabilities complement what data scientists are doing and enable business analysts to take advantage of advanced algorithms without involving IT.”
“Deep storage, and tape library-based storage in general, benefit organizations that are looking to incorporate low-cost, high-density, scalable storage into their fast-growth data environments. Industries that recognize the value and regularly rely on tape storage include education, federal and state government, finance, life sciences, media and entertainment, oil and gas exploration, and Web 2.0, among others.”
