ParAccel Announces OEM Relationship with IBM

IBM InfoSphere Change Data Capture to Provide Real-Time Integration In the ParAccel Analytic Database

ParAccel announced it has entered into an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with IBM. Under the terms of the agreement, ParAccel will embed IBM InfoSphere Change Data Capture within the ParAccel Analytic Database, providing ParAccel customers with seamless and real-time updates from heterogeneous databases, including IBM DB2, Oracle, and Microsoft’s SQL Server. Customers can use this ability to create high performance operational data stores and tactical analytic applications such as operational BI. 

“By capturing and using information in real-time, companies can make better-informed business decisions, boost customer service and increase operational efficiencies,” said Robert D. Thomas, vice president, Business Development, IBM Information Management. “InfoSphere Change Data Capture will help support the Information on Demand initiatives of ParAccel’s customers by providing them with powerful heterogeneous data integration capabilities.” 

Real Time Data Replication
“InfoSphere Change Data Capture provides sophisticated real-time data replication capabilities such as native support for major databases and legacy platforms as well as two-way data synchronization, data transformation, and support for configurations with many database instances," said Philip Russom, senior manager of research and services with the Data Warehouse Institute (TDWI). “By embedding these real-time replication capabilities, ParAccel will provide its customers with the ability to better integrate their valuable information assets and further leverage that information via complex data analysis using the ParAccel Analytic Database,” Russom said.

“We are delighted to be working with IBM,” said ParAccel President and CEO David Ehrlich. “IBM InfoSphere Change Data Capture will provide ParAccel customers with flexible, real time data replication capabilities. The combination of the ParAccel Analytic Database and InfoSphere Change Data Capture will create a powerful, low-latency analytic solution that is ideal for financial services, telecommunications, retail and other markets that are seeking to integrate disparate data sources into one computing environment for detailed analysis and improved decision-making,” Ehrlich said.   
 
The ParAccel Analytic Database
The ParAccel Analytic Database combines patent-pending innovations with a columnar, compressed, massively parallel, all-in-memory-capable architecture to yield gains over other database management systems in both performance and price-performance.         

The ParAccel Analytic Database is available as enterprise software or as a virtual or packaged appliance and runs on standard hardware such as IBM BladeCenter and IBM eServer System x. It installs and deploys quickly and can be implemented stand-alone in any environment or as a drop-in accelerator to add or extend analytic processing for an existing Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle platform. In addition, the ParAccel Analytic Database supports open standards such as ODBC, JDBC and ANSI SQL and works with the industry’s leading BI tools from vendors such as IBM Cognos. Built-in high availability features ensure high performance and continuous operation.

Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Mike Johnston, an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io, will discuss how to use Kubernetes to setup a SaaS infrastructure for your business. Mike Johnston is an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io with over 12 years of experience designing, deploying, and maintaining server and workstation infrastructure at all scales. He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace....
SYS-CON Events announced today the Kubernetes and Google Container Engine Workshop, being held November 3, 2016, in conjunction with @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. This workshop led by Sebastian Scheele introduces participants to Kubernetes and Google Container Engine (GKE). Through a combination of instructor-led presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs, students learn the key concepts and practices for deploying and maintainin...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
In his general session at 19th Cloud Expo, Manish Dixit, VP of Product and Engineering at Dice, discussed how Dice leverages data insights and tools to help both tech professionals and recruiters better understand how skills relate to each other and which skills are in high demand using interactive visualizations and salary indicator tools to maximize earning potential. Manish Dixit is VP of Product and Engineering at Dice. As the leader of the Product, Engineering and Data Sciences team at D...
DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...
