New Data Loading Technology from Greenplum Offers Breakthrough Speeds For Large-Scale Data Warehousing

March 16, 2009 by · Comments Off on New Data Loading Technology from Greenplum Offers Breakthrough Speeds For Large-Scale Data Warehousing 

Webmaster NewsLondon, UK. – Greenplum, a leading provider of database software for the next generation of data warehousing and analytics, today announced new technology designed to accelerate data loading for companies dealing with exponential data growth. Greenplum’s new “MPP Scatter/Gather Streaming” (SG Streaming) technology eliminates the bottlenecks associated with other approaches to data loading, enabling lightning-fast flow of data into the Greenplum Database for large-scale analytics and data warehousing. Greenplum customers are achieving production loading speeds of over four terabytes per hour with negligible impact on concurrent database operations.

Greenplum utilises a “parallel-everywhere” approach to loading in which data flows from one or more source systems to every node of the database without any sequential choke points. This differs from traditional “bulk loading” technologies, used by most mainstream database and MPP appliance vendors that push data from a single source, often over a single or small number of parallel channels, and result in fundamental bottlenecks and ever-increasing load times. Greenplum’s approach also avoids the need for a “loader” tier of servers, as required by some other MPP database vendors, that can add significant complexity and cost while effectively bottlenecking the bandwidth and parallelism of communication into the database.
