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.

The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...
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...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
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...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
In his keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Sheng Liang, co-founder and CEO of Rancher Labs, discussed the technological advances and new business opportunities created by the rapid adoption of containers. With the success of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and various open source technologies used to build private clouds, cloud computing has become an essential component of IT strategy. However, users continue to face challenges in implementing clouds, as older technologies evolve and newer ones like Docker c...
