Ingres 11, now known as Actian X Hybrid Database, includes the record breaking analytic engine from Actian’s Vector to enable a new class of applications that can mix OLTP and analytic queries, with each query being directed to the appropriate execution engine. Actian X also includes two significant additions for application integration and monitoring. DataConnect for Actian X provides an end-to-end solution for designing, deploying and managing data integration, and the Actian Enterprise Monitoring Appliance (EMA) can use Nagios compatible plug-ins now in Actian X to monitor Ingres environments.
Actian X also contains many new geospatial, performance, ease-of-use and security features. A few of the highlights are: ArcGIS plug-in, query optimizer reuse heuristics, automatic log file rotation, IANA timezones, Y2K38 fix, blob encryption and AES password encryption.
Ingres 10.2 is the latest version of the Ingres Database, an enterprise database. This release contains enhancements that will enable internationalization of customer applications allowing customers and partners to address new markets. With improved performance and reduced configuration overheads application development has never been easier. Users can also take their first steps into Big Data Analytics by applying the new Windowing functions to their existing transactional data.
New features include 2-D, 3-D and 4-D Spatial Data Types, Remote GCA, UTF-8 Transliteration, DBMS Level Authentication, IPV4 and IPV6 Data Types and Functions and Per-query Parallelism Level.
