The following is a guest post by Sean Jackson, Chief Marketing Officer at EXASOL, an analytic database management software company and Microsoft Azure Certified partner.
EXASOL has become the first MPP analytic database available in Microsoft Azure.
This is great news for companies who are looking to get started with analytics but at a price that works. Gone are the days when you had to spend a fortune up front to acquire hardware, systems and licenses; now, thanks to EXASOL on Microsoft Azure, you can focus on analytics and deriving value from data – not on infrastructure issues.
You can now combine EXASOL's performance-beating in-memory analytic database with the robustness and scalability of an industry-leading cloud infrastructure powered by Microsoft. More importantly, you can get started with analytics in minutes and start accelerating BI and reporting projects, all at a price that matches your budget.
Hosted in the Azure cloud, you now have access to a production-ready, highly secure and scalable way to analyze data at breakneck speeds and turn valuable insights into profits at a price that's right.
Offering tailor-made and flexible analytic solutions in the cloud has not always been possible because of the lack of compute power required to run high-performing SQL analytical databases. Azure bridges this gap by providing the capability to run EXASOL's in-memory database in the cloud. Azure's industry-leading Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) helps companies dramatically reduce the time needed to get on board with data analytics projects.
So if you're interested in running analytic projects or just want to up your game with regards to BI and reporting, then take a look at EXASOL on Microsoft Azure.
