Get Started with the Ocient Hyperscale Data Warehouse
is a data warehouse for running analytics against the world’s largest timeseries datasets. It is designed to be flexible in its deployment options and cost-effective. Ocient does not require knowledge of unfamiliar programming languages that require additional time and cost to learn. With industry-standard interfaces like SQL, JDBC, and ODBC, Ocient makes it easy for organizations to interact with data in Ocient. Running on commodity hardware, Ocient can run on-premises in an organization’s data center, in the cloud, or as a fully managed service by Ocient. While flexible and cost-effective, Ocient is also designed to be extremely fast and scalable with timeseries datasets larger than 100 terabytes.
Traditional relational databases, even those designed for analytics, don’t scale from a cost or performance perspective to petabyte and exabyte-sized datasets. Big data solutions can scale to large datasets but are often complex, inflexible, and require too much time to execute queries. Ocient is designed to give users the interactive analysis of traditional relational databases at the scale of big data solutions. This means that queries that used to take hours, or not run at all, now execute in seconds. Ocient achieves this performance through its distributed architecture where storage and compute are collocated.
The collocation of storage and compute also allows Ocient to perform other valuable operations on the data stored in the data warehouse such as machine learning and geospatial analysis. By executing machine learning and geospatial analysis within the data warehouse, Ocient eliminates additional data movement and enables organizations to run machine learning and geospatial analysis at a scale that was previously impossible or impractical.
