ParAccel Wins Red Herring Global 100 Award for Driving Innovation in Advanced Analytics and Business Data Exploration

Industry Kudos Spotlights ParAccel as One of the World's Most Promising Private Technology Companies

CUPERTINO, CA--(Marketwire - January 20, 2010) - ParAccel, Inc., provider of the record-breaking ParAccel Analytic Database for data warehousing and analytics, today announced it was named to the Red Herring Global 100, an award that recognizes leading private technology companies for their innovation and influence as industry change agents across worldwide markets.

Red Herring has a long history of chronicling the growth and development of emerging technology companies and identifying up-and-coming industry leaders. The magazine's editorial staff whittled the 100 winners down from 1,200 companies in North America, Asia and Europe. The editors employed a range of criteria including financial performance, technological innovation, management quality, and market penetration as well as the track record and standing of competing companies.

Designed specifically for highly sophisticated data warehousing and analytic applications, ParAccel is taking business insight to new levels of performance, giving executives timelier access to data-driven intelligence to enable greater business impact. The ParAccel Analytic Database quickly processes ad hoc and complex business questions without the cost and delay of tuning and schema preparation imposed by other databases. PADB delivers the industry's best analytic price-performance using common tools and commodity servers, such as Dell, HP, IBM and Sun.

In SAN-attached data warehouses, PADB dramatically improves performance by 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 -- a patent-pending enterprise-class solution that is unavailable with other analytic appliances.

"We've created the world's most powerful advanced analytics platform to give executives data-driven intelligence from vast sums of data so they can deliver compelling business advantage, and we're pleased to receive such industry recognition," said Kim Stanick, Vice President, Marketing. "This award along with our growing customer base is positive acknowledgement of our leadership in establishing the next-generation of business analytics."
