ANDOVER, Mass., June 18 /PRNewswire/ — Vertica Systems today launched the "Powered by Vertica" Program, which makes it easy for enterprise software and hardware partners to embed the Vertica(R) Analytic Database into their solutions. The new program enables independent software vendors (ISVs), original equipment manufacturer (OEM) hardware and appliance providers and software as a service (SaaS) vendors to differentiate their solutions at a time when businesses in any industry are trying to gain competitive advantage by turning their data into meaningful information.
The Powered by Vertica program addresses this need by giving ISVs, OEMs and SaaS partners the ability to embed the revenue-generating performance benefits of Vertica's grid-based, column-oriented analytic database within their solutions. Leveraging Vertica in this way allows partners to differentiate significantly from competitors and provide unique value to their customers by enabling them to analyze much more data — from hundreds of gigabytes to dozens of terabytes — at any level of detail with extremely rapid response times while running on low-cost "green grids" of industry standard servers.
Enterprise event management (EEM) technology provider OpenService is a Powered by Vertica partner using the Vertica Analytic Database in its LogCenter application to offer customers real-time security compliance reporting based on large volumes of data continuously collected from security sensors. "CSOs, compliance officers, auditors, and network managers these days are swimming in data that they don't really have time to fully study, so they are forced to make decisions based on partial information," said Geoffrey Coulter, CTO, at OpenService. "Embedding the Vertica Analytic Database into LogCenter gives us a real edge over our competition. The Vertica database is a great foundation for enabling our customers to collect and analyze more data faster and in more ways in order to make their IT systems more reliable and secure than ever."
Other Powered by Vertica partners such as LogiXML, Streambase, Nmetrics, Nuvola Software and Integra embed the Vertica Analytic Database to manage network performance, retail transactions, call detail records, Web clickstreams, market history and many other types of data. LogiXML has embedded the Vertica Analytic Database into its newly launched LogiOnDemand platform, which is a hosted business intelligence platform aimed at small to medium companies. "We've developed a software-as-a-service model that makes BI fast and affordable for companies that don't have the resources to do it in-house," said Steven Schneider, CTO of LogiOnDemand. "The unique capabilities of the Vertica Analytic Database make this offering possible by delivering the query speed these companies will depend on, and the partner pricing, data compression, automatic tuning and high availability that minimizes our hosting costs, which, in turn, makes the service more economical for our customers."
Analytic flexibility and scalability
The Vertica Analytic Database is well suited for any query-intensive application that manages large, fast-growing volumes of data. Hardware and software vendors will save time and money embedding it into their solutions instead of attempting to build analytic storage engines in-house. Vertica's standards-based SQL, ODBC, and JDBC support enable partners to rapidly integrate and deploy Vertica embedded or bundled as part of their own solution. The Powered by Vertica Program is a comprehensive offering that includes development licenses, porting assistance, support and flexible revenue sharing options for qualified partners. Other key Powered by Vertica program benefits include:
— Highly differentiated customer value — The Vertica Analytic Database offers rapid load times, queries data 50x to 200x faster than other databases, provides real-time views of data, reduces storage cost by compressing data by 50 percent to 90 percent and runs on hardware costing 50 percent to 70 percent less. This enables customers using Vertica-powered applications to analyze much more data at any level of detail for much less money.
— Painless scalability — The Vertica Analytic Database has a shared-nothing architecture, which allows partners' customers to grow their implementations cost-effectively by adding additional server nodes to a cluster rather than face rip and replace upgrades.
— Licensing flexibility — Special pricing for partners enables them to match Vertica licensing to their billing models (i.e. based on data volume, royalty levels, term, etc.) to promote growth and profitability of their business.
— Deployment flexibility — Vertica runs on any off-the-shelf x86-based Linux server, which gives partners the ability to embed or bundle Vertica on the hardware of their choice at customer premises or in-house as a hosted (SaaS) offering. Vertica is also available hosted in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud on a monthly, pay-as-you-go basis for partners that want to lower start-up product development and test marketing costs or who license solutions on a similar basis, such as marketing campaign analytics.
— Low cost of ownership — Whether deployed internally as a hosted solution or on-site in customers' data centers, Vertica's automatic tuning and high availability features, standard integration with Web 2.0, ETL and BI development software, and data compression all greatly reduce data center and administration overhead.
"Data analytics has become an indispensable competitive advantage not only for companies, but for their software and hardware vendors," said Vertica CEO Ralph Breslauer. "The Powered by Vertica program benefits both, delivering the analytic performance and speed that lets our partners' customers out-innovate competitors."
