True Hybrid Platform That Lets You
Migrate According To Your Terms
Actian Avalanche is a hybrid cloud data warehouse that can be deployed on-premises as well as on AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud. Avalanche helps you to incrementally migrate or offload from your existing enterprise data warehouse until it can be retired in a managed fashion—according to your timeframe and your terms. Choose the path that is best for you – cloud, on-premises, or a combination of both, with a seamlessly architected hybrid solution.
performance improvement at enterprise scale
Avalanche is designed for enterprise-class workloads with high levels of concurrency and query complexity. It delivers up to 20X performance advantage over legacy data warehouse solutions–at a fraction of the cost. It is uniquely able to perform analytical queries even as the data warehouse is being updated–without adding any latency. Say good-bye to nightly batch loads.
Reduce OpEx by
50% and get rid of CapEx altogether
Since Avalanche runs on commodity hardware, its cost profile is significantly lower than that of legacy data warehouses. Avalanche typically reduces operating expense costs (e.g. appliance annual maintenance) by 50% and removes capital expense altogether. You will also take advantage of cloud economics – turn off compute resources when you choose to and pay only for what you use.
Minimize migration risk with a highly automated, non-disruptive move to Avalanche
Migrations of terabytes of data, thousands of tables and views, specialized code and data types, and other proprietary impediments to change do not happen overnight.
The Avalanche migration service ensures that over 90% of any custom code written for legacy data warehouses is migrated automatically. We migrate the rest manually by leveraging our trusted partners — making this a risk-free and worry-free exercise for you. Avalanche also delivers full interoperability with your existing back-end applications, enterprise data repositories, and new data sources.
Moving from Netezza to Actian Avalanche
Global bank realized large improvements in performance and TCO by transitioning to Actian. The bank estimates a total savings of $20 million over five years.
Actian Avalanche improved query performance from days to minutes, and lowered TCO with an expected $20M in savings over five years.
Actian simply outperformed the competition in nearly every category, including quickest time to value and fastest response times to market changes.
