EsgynDB 2.5 Release

//EsgynDB 2.5 Release

Milpitas CA – January 18, 2019 – As Esgyn reaches the 50 customer mark worldwide, Esgyn announces the availability of Release 2.5 of EsgynDB, which contains hundreds of enhancements and fixes, to meet customer needs in the areas of usability, manageability, security, feature capabilities, availability and performance to meet specific workload needs.

Customers can now leverage EsgynDB’s extensive multi-tenancy capabilities across heterogeneous resource pools as their clusters grow, and the newer servers are configured into more efficient resource pools.  As with Cloudera Manager, customers can provision and manage their EsgynDB environment directly from Ambari.  EsygnDB manager security has been strengthened and its UI improved as well.

Various SQL functions have been introduced to make it easier for customers to use functions they are used to in other databases.  EsgynDB facilitates the creation of Hive Apache ORC and Apache Parquet tables, and now allows customers direct access to their Hive tables on S3 to avail of cheaper storage options.  It also allows the incremental maintenance of stats on such tables, to generate better plans.  In this way EsgynDB maintains hot data in Trafodion HBase tables for fast real-time operational access, while automatically copying / moving data to Hive columnar stores based on customer specified criteria, for warm BI reporting and analytics, and cold archival in object storage.

Performance enhancements are made to EsgynDB continuously to maintain its lead for high-concurrency BI and analytics workloads, as demonstrated in executing all 99 TPC-DS queries, as well as its unparalleled performance in supporting the TPC Order Entry benchmarks for fully distributed ACID transactions on Hadoop.

EsgynDB R2.5 is the core infrastructure underpinning Esgyn’s cloud service offering, Esgyn Strato.  See what James Curtis, Senior Analyst, 451 Research, has to say about Esgyn, EsgynDB and Esgyn Strato in this paper.
