  2. 2. Brochure Insight DeliveredWhat is Vectorwise?Today’s business software hasn’t kept pace with the explosive growth ofdata. This means that the software you rely on is often unable to analyzedata on the scale you need to make the best decisions possible. As a result,many critical business decisions are made based on inadequate or sum-marized data sets because today’s software can’t provide the analysis andinsights you need when you need them.Taking action on Big Data is impossible if you cannot even gain the insights required tomake business decisions. Actian enables you to take action on Big Data using Vectorwiseas the enabling foundation.Vectorwise represents a step-change in database technology. By unlocking the capabilitiesof the modern chip, our customers and partners report 10x–70x better performance ben-efits for analytic workloads. Those queries which currently take you minutes can be cut toseconds. The answers you’ve been told are too expensive to compute can be delivered usingcommodity servers and don’t require expert tuning. Vectorwise can power your business infour easy steps: install, load data, gather statistics and start running queries. This skipsover complex, time-consuming steps such as complex schema, data load design andexpert tuning that you would normally expect to take hours or even days. “We ported a business application from oracle to Ingres Vectorwise Database and were astounded by the substantial performance increases, which were up to 70x better. our customers are also tired of paying for Big Software prices so we are always on the look- out for more cost effective solutions. With Ingres Vectorwise Database, we get the best of both worlds; we can now offer our customers a lower cost and a better performing analytic database.” Michael Thuleweit, Managing Director, Datamatics 2

This technology is supported by Actian whose global support capabilities continueresearch Systems to be demonstrated by over 10,000 customers running mission critical workloads around the world. customers report that answers to complex business queries that previously took several minutes are now available in seconds. What our partners say Partners report that the amount of time analytical or BI projects previously took can now be cut in half using Vectorwise. Fully utilize current hardware Vectorwise can now efficiently exploit the 95% of modern chip capability that isn’t currently utilized by business software, rather than forcing chip customization or blindly throwing hardware at the problem. Lower overall TCO As Vectorwise enables better performance with less hardware, the outcome is more than 10x better performance at a fraction of the hardware cost. In addition, the simple self- tuning technology reduces the need for scarce specialist resources. Improved green credentials Vectorwise delivers dramatically greater performance with small servers and produces radical reductions in disk storage which significantly reduces power and air conditioning requirements and the carbon footprint at large. 3

Vector processing takes full advantage of the modern microprocessor driving up to 100 fold improvements in processing performance. 2. Vectorwise is designed for on-chip cache memory which is two orders of magnitude faster than rAM. 3. Self optimizing, compressed column store means only the data needed for the query is streamed directly to the chip cache. This means fewer disks which helps reduce power and storage costs. This ground-breaking product, Vectorwise, is a combination of the Ingres database and technology from Vectorwise, a spin-out from the renowned cWI institute in Amsterdam. 4
