Kognitio’s WX2 Analytical Database is the Product of the Year

Originally published April 9, 2009

Kognitio, a global provider of business intelligence (BI) and data warehousing solutions, recently announced that its WX2 analytical database has been chosen as a “Product of the Year” in the business intelligence and analytics category of SearchDataManagement.com’s 2008 Products of the Year program, by the editors of TechTarget’s Enterprise Applications Media Group.

The SearchDataManagement.com editorial staff, in conjunction with a team of industry analysts and consultants, noted that WX2 “is available in a variety of deployment models:”  through a software license, as a commodity hardware–based data warehouse appliance, or through Kognitio’s industry–first Data Warehousing as a Service (DaaS) offering.  The editors wrote, “Any way you deploy it, WX2 is a powerful data warehouse appliance that lets customers analyze hundreds of terabytes of data in a matter of seconds, thanks to its massive parallel processing design.”

They also singled out DaaS in particular, saying it “can be ideal for customers looking for fast analytic capabilities at a reduced cost, as it can be deployed quickly without incurring high start-up and maintenance costs, according to the company. And just one database administrator (DBA) can manage the entire system on a day–to–day basis.”
