Vexata and Supermicro Enable New Levels of Performance and Efficiency for Active Data Analytics
Vexata (@VexataCorp), the leader in active data storage solutions, announced today a partnership with Supermicro(R) to develop solutions for Microsoft(R) SQL Server Data Warehouse (DW) deployments showcasing industry leading data analytics with Vexata.
To gain insights into historical data and report on important business metrics, enterprises deploy SQL Server-based data warehouses. As enterprises strive to reduce time to insight and actions, real time analytics and reporting are becoming a necessity, and existing data infrastructures that are based on distributed batch analytics are too slow and inefficient. A high-performance SQL Server data warehouse that can address hundreds of TBs of data is a critical business tool to access all active data.
‘With the increasing importance of data-driven business decisions and the explosion in the scale and types of data collected’, says Zahid Hussain, CEO of Vexata, ‘there is an ever growing need for enterprises to focus on active data analytics. Our technology partnership with Supermicro helps us build in greater performance capabilities into our offerings that we can showcase with reference solutions using Supermicro servers.’
With Vexata VX-100F systems incorporating the new Intel(R) Xeon(R) Scalable processors and solid-state drives, along with Supermicro X11 SuperServer(R) solutions, enterprises can derive greater performance, scalability and security out of their data platforms. Vexata works closely with Supermicro to provide solution reference designs for Oracle, SQL Server, Kx and GPFS that deliver an orders of magnitude performance improvement over similar reference designs from other vendors.
‘Supermicro’s SuperServer combined with Vexata’s data management layer provides a leading-edge solution for data warehouse users’ said Michael McNerney, Vice President Software Solutions and Infrastructure, Supermicro. ‘The Vexata solution which achieved over 35 GB/s of mixed read/write bandwidth provides a significant market advantage.’
Vexata’s active data infrastructure solutions enable transformative performance at scale for the I/O intensive applications driving digital business. Based on its groundbreaking VX-OS software, Vexata solid state storage systems deploy simply and seamlessly into enterprise and cloud data center environments.
