Home Business IT Business Telecommunications Actian puts Vectorwise database in Rackspace cloud

Actian's high-performance Vectorwise database will be available as a hosted offering from leading cloud provider Rackspace.

The Vectorwise Cloud will allow organisations to take advantage of Vectorwise's ability to process very large datasets without having to buy or build the necessary infrastructure.

Vectorwise Cloud will be available for datasets ranging from 100GB to 10TB.

"It's not enough for organisations to be able to store their data - they also need to be able to make sense of it, and Vectorwise Cloud can now provide them with a combination of affordability and performance in the cloud," said Andy Schroepfer, vice president of enterprise strategy at Rackspace.
"Today's businesses simply can't be limited by inflexible IT infrastructures because the reality is that their data is always moving," said Fred Gallagher, general manager of Actian Vectorwise. "Vectorwise already addresses the market's need for powerful and affordable solutions for getting insight from your data, and by combining it with Rackspace's unparalleled flexibility and Fanatical Support, businesses finally have a solution that can help meet all their needs."

Actian recently announced a partnership with Lenovo to deliver a Vectorwise appliance.
