Greenplum Database 4.0 is the culmination of more than seven years of development and addresses the most rigorous data warehousing needs of the world's largest organizations. This release introduces the next generation of advanced workload management and self-healing fault tolerance capabilities, allowing it to comfortably power data warehouses and marts of any scale and complexity. Greenplum Database 4.0 also powers the databases provisioned by Greenplum Chorus.
"Today's announcements represent a true breakthrough in the way enterprises can manage and benefit from all of their data, and mark significant milestones in the evolution of our company," said Scott Yara, president and co-founder, Greenplum. "We've invested considerable resources and undertaken a tremendous effort to make our vision a reality, and today we have delivered on our promise with the revolutionary Greenplum Chorus Enterprise Data Cloud platform, and Greenplum Database 4.0, the world's most powerful analytic database."
The Greenplum Chorus EDC platform, and Greenplum Database 4.0 will be on display at the invitation-only Greenplum Days event taking place alongside the Gartner Business Intelligence Summit at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, April 12-13.
Greenplum Chorus is a new class of software that empowers people within an enterprise to more easily collaborate and derive insight from their data. As the first commercial Enterprise Data Cloud platform, it provides the key services necessary for organizations wrestling with all data, big and small, structured and unstructured, to realize the benefits of private cloud computing techniques and social collaboration for enterprise data warehousing and analytics.
Chorus serves the needs of data analysts, IT and business executives with three core pillars of functionality.
-- Self-service provisioning of data marts and secure, controlled sandboxes relieves IT of the management overhead and operational complexity usually associated with data mart deployment.
-- Data services, allowing analysts to effortlessly discover, combine and share useful datasets within and across data marts.
-- Data collaboration, providing rich social networking capabilities that link data and data analysts to accelerate collaboration and insight.
"Greenplum is at the forefront of a market shift," said Tim O'Reilly, founder and CEO of O'Reilly Media and a Greenplum advisor. "It's a shift that is moving beyond hardware, software, and even the Internet. It's a shift about data. Big Data. Small Data. All Data. What Greenplum is delivering today will create new opportunities for enterprises to harness their data to improve how they operate, respond to customers, and create new products and services."
Greenplum Chorus is built for global scale, and is powered by the Greenplum Data HypervisorT, a distributed cloud-scale execution framework that manages complex cross-database state, data movement and orchestration in a fault-tolerant and self-healing manner.
"Greenplum's EDC technology is driving a new era of safe, trusted sharing," said Scott McNealy, industry visionary and executive advisor to Greenplum. "Greenplum is breaking down the walls of the data warehouse with a wonderful, next-generation architecture that I think is very, very exciting and which could see very wide adoption in a very quick way."
Greenplum Database 4.0
Greenplum Database 4.0, a major release of Greenplum's industry leading massively-parallel (MPP) database product, is the culmination of more than seven years of development. Already regarded as the most scalable mission-critical analytical database and in use at more than 100 leading enterprises worldwide, the new release raises the bar with numerous powerful features and enhancements.
-- Dynamic Query Prioritization: Extends Greenplum's Advanced Workload Management with patent pending technology providing continuous real-time balancing of the resources of the entire cluster across all running queries. Gives DBAs the controls they need to meet workload SLAs in complex mixed workload environments.
-- Self-Healing Fault Tolerance: Traditional MPP database fault-tolerance techniques were suitable for <100 servers, but TCO increased dramatically beyond that scale. Greenplum's new fault-tolerance capabilities provide intelligent fault-detection and fast online differential recovery, lowering TCO and allowing cloud-scale systems with the highest levels of availability.
-- Polymorphic Data StorageT - MultiStorage/SSD Support: Greenplum Database 3.3 introduced Polymorphic Data StorageT, including tunable compression and support for both row- and column-oriented storage within a database. With Greenplum Database 4.0, this is extended to allow the placement of data on specific storage types such as SSD media or NAS archival stores.
-- Analytics & Language Enhancements: Support for PL/Java, and optimized C and Java function support for Greenplum MapReduce.
-- Performance Enhancements: A range of enhancements, including faster single-row operations (select, update, insert & delete), and index access methods for columnar and AO table types.
-- Health Monitoring & Alerting: Provides email and SNMP notification in the case of any event needing IT attention
Other enhancements in Greenplum Database 4.0 include a fast parallel data-out capability, and a wide range of minor enhancements and optimizations.
