Aster Data nCluster Cloud Edition

On-Demand Big Data Analytics

Aster Data nCluster Cloud Edition brings the analytic power of the Aster Data analytic platform together with the flexibility and agility of cloud infrastructure to enable customers and service providers to deliver rich analytics that can rapidly and easily scale to incorporate their large volumes of multi-structured data.

Aster Data nCluster is a massively parallel software solution that embeds MapReduce analytic processing with data stores for big data analytics that incorporate new multi-structured data sources and types. It delivers new analytic capabilities with breakthrough performance and scalability. Aster Data has partnered with leading cloud infrastructure providers including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Dell, and Terremark to deliver a true analytic platform at cloud scale.

Featured Cloud Partner

Aster Data and Dell have partnered to deliver performance-optimized solutions for big data analytics. The solutions provide a compute-rich hardware platform of Dell PowerEdge™-C Series servers, ideally suited for the
Aster Data nCluster massively parallel analytic platform. The Aster Data and Dell combination expands the solutions available to customers for both public and private clouds, making it easy for companies with a range of data sizes and analytics needs to deploy and run their mission-critical, data-driven applications.

Architected for Embedded Analytics

nCluster Cloud Edition is the first MPP analytic platform in the cloud that allows applications to be fully embedded within the database engine for ultra-fast, deep analysis of massive data sets. Aster Data nCluster's unique “applications-within™” approach allows application logic to exist and execute with the data itself for advanced in-database analytics. nCluster Cloud Edition uses SQL-MapReduce® together with parallelized data processing and applications to address the big data challenge. nCluster Cloud Edition is ideally suited to fully use the elasticity, scalability, and persistence of cloud computing. nCluster Cloud Edition lets you:

  • Start your analytic application  project quickly
  • Scale easily from gigabytes to terabytes and petabytes with no downtime
  • Gain deeper insights to your data through SQL-MapReduce

Start Quickly

Big data analytics projects do not have to cost a lot or take long to implement. Aster Data nCluster Cloud Edition provides an easy approach to setting up a scalable system. It can increase your speed to market – enabling you to provision nodes to Aster Data nCluster Cloud Edition for data loading, reporting, and analytics within hours.

Scale Easily with No Downtime

Through our cloud integration with leading vendors, Aster Data nCluster Cloud Edition provides the most manageable on-demand analytic platform built from the ground up for maximum resiliency and easy scaling. Live System Administration enables routine tasks to be performed while the system is online—without degradation of query performance. Even more, nCluster Cloud Edition is the only massively parallel processing (MPP) system that gives you Online Precision Scaling™ — one-click provisioning to increase or decrease capacity or performance across functional tiers (query, loading, backup, etc.) independently to meet workload requirements.

Online Precision Scaling lets you scale incrementally by function in the cloud with zero downtime

Gain Deeper Insights with SQL-MapReduce

Companies who need to power data-driven applications such as digital marketing optimization, fraud detection and prevention, social network and relationship analysis, and machine data analysis need more than simple SQL statements or reports. Aster Data provides the first-ever MPP analytic platform in the cloud with SQL-MapReduce – a powerful parallel-processing framework for data analysis and transformation inside the database. This combines the power and analytic expressiveness of MapReduce with the rich functionality and support of SQL – all in the cloud for on-demand advanced analytics.
