Splice Machine Announces Limited Product Release
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Splice Machine, provider of the only real-time transactional SQL-on-Hadoop database designed for Big Data applications, today announced that it has launched its Limited Release program. As part of the program, the Company is seeking 50 evaluators to validate authentic use cases, test SQL coverage and benchmark performance, prior to releasing the product for general availability.
"As the only real-time, transactional SQL database built on Hadoop, our product allows application developers and database architects to have the scalability of Hadoop and HBase, the ubiquity of SQL as well as the transactional integrity of an RDBMS," said Monte Zweben, CEO and Co-Founder of Splice Machine. "Our current charter customers are seeing compelling results from our product and we're excited to extend our Limited Release program to 50 additional evaluators."
Splice Machine is currently being tested by its charter customers as a replacement for their Oracle, MySQL, or PostgreSQL databases. It is being used as the platform for real-time applications for customers in the consumer marketing, eCommerce, SaaS, and energy trading industries. Initial results have shown a 10x increase in price/performance, through a 30-50% decrease in response times on significantly less expensive hardware.
