Analytics on Amazon Web Services and Sold Through the AWS
Clustrix on AWS Easily Scales to Tens of Terabytes of Data, Millions
of Users or Devices, With Both High-Scale Transaction and Real-Time
Analytics Running at the Same Time 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/24/13 --  Clustrix, the
leading scale-out SQL database engineered for the cloud, today
announced Clustrix 5.0 on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Clustrix 5.0
demonstrates real-time analytics performance on a proven OLTP system.
With the addition of AWS, Clustrix is available today on AWS
Marketplace, on-demand, and through its popular appliance. Clustrix
provided a limited early release of Clustrix built on AWS this
"After creating the world's leading scale-out SQL database for
transactional workloads, we are now bringing real-time analytics to
operational data," said Robin Purohit, CEO of Clustrix. "Now our
customers can easily scale-out a database that can support massive
transaction volumes and use true, real-time analytics for unmatched
operational intelligence to drive real-time business decisions." 
Clustrix Version 5.0 - Scale-out Transactions and Scale-out
 Clustrix 5.0 is for data-driven businesses that require
blazingly fast real-time analytics on operational data. Clustrix 5.0
is a row-based SQL database designed to bring Massively Parallel
Processing to analytic queries on operational data. The same
near-linear scalability Clustrix has previously brought to OLTP
workloads is now achievable for analytics. Simply add nodes to scale
the system and cut the time to process analytic queries. 
This scale-out analytics is achieved with innovative distributed
aggregates and OLAP fan-out technologies, where multiple cores across
multiple nodes work in parallel on analytic queries. Analytic query
performance can improve by 25x, and up to 1000x in some cases.

 Legacy SQL databases were architected more
than 25 years ago in a very different data world. These older
"scale-up" architectures are overwhelmed by the large and growing
data sets of
 today's webscale applications in mobile, social media,
ecommerce and vertical markets such as healthcare, education, and
gaming. What's more, the legacy "scale-up" architecture is not well
suited to the cloud, which is built upon a "scale-out" foundation. In
the same way that scale-out storage and off-line analytics are now
the de facto standard for public and private clouds, the next
generation of webscale and internet-of-things applications demand a
scale-out SQL database that is engineered for the cloud. 
"The legacy SQL databases can no longer meet the demands of our
applications," said Kenneth Kwan, CTO for EngageBDR. "We looked long
and hard for a database that is built from the beginning to excel on
the cloud and can scale both transactions and real-time analytics for
our business. With Clustrix, analytic queries that used to take over
four hours now complete in 15 seconds, which is clearly a game
changer for our online advertising business." 
Clustrix overcomes the limitations of legacy database architectures
that create pricing and TCO challenges as applications scale. In this
way, Clustrix enables application developers to innovate using the
power of SQL and take advantage of the new cloud economics, both in
development and production. Clustrix on AWS easily scales to tens of
terabytes of data, millions of users or devices, with both high-scale
transaction and real-time analytics running at the same time.

 Customers can start using Clustrix on AWS for as
low as $0.12 an hour per node with a 50% introductory promotion
through July 24, 2013 in the AWS Marketplace. A single server version
is available for free for development and test (only pay AWS instance
cost). Clustrix on AWS is available in all AWS regions. Community
support is free to all customers, and premium support and consulting
are available directly from Clustrix.
