ParAccel and Database Architechs Partner to Meet Growing Need for Enterprise Analytic Solutions That Power New Discoveries

Relationship Provides Organizations With End-to-End Integration and Services for High-Performance Data Warehousing and Analytics With ParAccel

CUPERTINO, CA--(Marketwire - November 12, 2009) - ParAccel, Inc., provider of the record-breaking ParAccel Analytic Database, a high-speed, low-effort, massively parallel (MPP) columnar database management system (DBMS) for data warehousing and analytics, today announced that global consulting firm Database Architechs has joined the ParAccel Partner Program. As a ParAccel partner, Database Architechs will integrate the revolutionary ParAccel Analytic Database (PADB) into custom-developed information systems and assist ParAccel customers with maximizing the analytic capacity of PADB.

Founded in 1992, Database Architechs provides comprehensive database design, integration and performance management services for global enterprises, including many Fortune 500 companies. The combination of ParAccel and Database Architechs will deliver innovative, large-scale solutions that exceed former price-performance limitations and enable new opportunities in business intelligence and analytics.

"ParAccel's breakthrough analytic database enables companies to explore and leverage large volumes of business data with time and budget efficiencies never before possible," said Thierry Gerardin, Managing Director at Database Architechs. "PADB's ability to perform complex queries without tuning and indexing allows companies to spend less time preparing data and more time exploring new discoveries that deliver greater value to the business. We look forward to partnering with ParAccel and incorporating its technology into high-impact, custom-designed environments that drive keener insight and deeper value for forward-looking companies worldwide."

ParAccel is taking data warehousing and analytic database queries to new levels of performance and efficiency with a columnar, massively parallel architecture built to perform with standard hardware and tools. PADB enables customers to tackle complex business questions, and efficiently process ad hoc and highly complex queries, more simply than ever before, without the tuning, indexing or schema limitations imposed by other databases. PADB includes enterprise-class manageability, availability and recoverability via automatic fail-over for mission critical needs. PADB also dramatically improves the performance of SAN-attached data warehouses with a patent-pending approach for balancing I/O and storage across compute nodes and the SAN, while leveraging the customer's enterprise data management infrastructure for high availability, disaster recovery and backups -- capabilities that are unavailable with other analytical databases and appliances.

"Database Architechs is a valued partner among many large IT organizations with the exploding data volumes that ParAccel was designed to manage faster and more intelligently," said Kim Stanick, Vice President of Marketing at ParAccel. "We're pleased to pair Database Architechs' extensive knowledge and experience with the ParAccel Analytic Database and expand the potential for companies to realize significant business returns from breakthrough analytic applications."
