Sybase Releases Sybase Analytic Appliance

AdOn Network finds Sybase Analytic Appliance easy to use and cost effective

Sybase has announced the immediate availability of the Sybase Analytic Appliance, configured and tuned to provide extreme analytics and alleviate overburdened data warehouses, data marts and reporting systems. Sybase Analytic Appliance combines Sybase IQ with such technologies as Sybase PowerDesigner, IBM Power Systems, and MicroStrategy. Sybase Analytic Appliance has demonstrated success among its early adopter program with its ease of implementation and ability to analyze vast amounts of corporate data at an affordable price point.

Sybase Analytic Appliance on IBM Power Systems has all the benefits of a custom-built enterprise data warehouse (EDW), but is easy, fast and affordable. The appliance provides a unified appliance console, pre-configured hardware, software and storage in one compact and power-efficient unit, with single vendor support. Further, Sybase Analytic Appliance requires lower initial and ongoing investment because stored data in column-based Sybase IQ is compressed by up to 70 percent of its input size. Sybase Analytic Appliance does not require labor-intensive index tuning, reducing overall maintenance costs, and its point-and-click console simplifies appliance administration and monitoring.

Under the hood of the Sybase Analytic Appliance
Key features of the Sybase Analytic Appliance include:

  • Powerful Analytics Server: Sybase IQ is used by more than 1,400 customers worldwide. Sybase IQ requires no special tuning or indexing to deliver query results that are 10 to 100 times faster than traditional row-oriented relational databases.
  • Fast Data-Loading for Timelier Analysis: ETL is fully integrated into the system, enabling new data to be loaded into Sybase Analytic Appliance and ensuring that analyses and queries employ fresh, current data.
  • Leading Data Modeling Tool: The appliance offers fast time-to-value by reading the source data warehouse schemas and automatically generating the target appliance schema. Optional data models for the financial, healthcare, banking, insurance and telecommunications industries are also available.
  • Superior Server and Storage Technology: Based on IBM Power Systems technology and POWER6TM, customers can benefit from off-the-shelf components to add capacity easily. The appliance also offers a high-availability architecture with redundant hot-swap components and Level 5 RAID for resilient data protection.
  • Top Business Intelligence Software: A 10-user license of MicroStrategy business intelligence software for reporting, analysis and monitoring is included, allowing users with even basic skills to create a broad range of reports simply.
  • Unified Appliance Console: The integrated console includes DBA and system management tools and provides easy-to-use GUIs for permissions, monitoring, diagnostics, trouble-shooting and other administrative functions. For companies that require zero-administration, remote management services are also available.
  • Fast Backup and Restore: Sybase Analytic Appliance provides high-speed backup and restore for system reliability.
