bills by 75%, with our storage-accelerated data warehouse.

Key Features

Everything you need for analytical query processing, transformation pipelines, and data apps.

ANSI-SQL Compatiblity

Full SQL support including complex joins, views, expressions, window functions - you name it !

Low Latency

Directly feed your data intensive apps from AkashX, no need for additional middle tiers to backend the apps.

High-Concurrency

Concurrent analysts, concurrent dashboards or concurrent pipelines, or all at once !

Elastic Scalability

Start small and scale as you grow in terms of data volume, workload volume, or both.

Support for Iceberg, Hudi

We support open file formats - Apache Iceberg, and Hudi - without need for any data migration.

Easy migration

Switching is a breeze, no rewriting pipelines, dashboards, or scripts - just change the endpoints !

What is Storage Acceleration?

AkashX takes the well known concept of pushing compute closer to data to a whole new level!

Architectural Features

AkashX is architected for fast, scalable, concurrent, and fresh data analytics.

Vectorized query execution

Single-Instruction-Multiple-Data (SIMD) and Vector Instructions are leveraged for highly efficient query processing.

Columnar data storage

Data is stored in column-major format to speedup analytical queries and compressed loading.

Massively Parallel Processing (MPP)

Analytical queries are broken into many fragments and efficiently delegated to every thread available for high throughput, massively parallel execution.

Unbounded scalability

Shared-nothing architecture allows the storage layer to scale infinitely and topology-aware query query execution allows minimal data shuffling.

Adaptive replication of hot data

Hot and large chunks of data are proactively redistributed to optimally load balance across the cluster.

Join acceleration

Toplogy aware join execution allows pushing down the query fragments to storage servers and minimizing the inter-instance result shipping.

Excessive compute costs for big data in the public clouds is a growing problem, and AkashX's innovation can bring affordability and cost-efficiency to many data-driven enterprises.

FAQs

How difficult is it to migrate our current data warehouse to AkashX ?

Short answer: Easy.

Long answer:

There is a one-time data migration involved and we provide the hand-holding support to perform this. It should be done in a few hours, depending on your data volume.

Do we get vendor-locked in ?

Short answer: No.

Long answer:

Migrating data out of AkashX is as simple as migrating in. Also, the AkashX stack includes popular open-source tools such as DBT, Airflow, and Superset, so there is no dependency created as such.

How will AkashX fit into our current stack ?

Short answer: Easily.

Long answer:

AkashX supports popular database drivers such as JDBC/OBDC and any of the MySQL-compatible client SDKs/CLIs/APIs and it should be very easy to route the endpoints in your current stack.

How secure is this ?

AkashX is deployed within your secure tenancy in your cloud; it can also be part of your VPC network. It can inherit your access control privileges, and integrate with your SSO Server.

We provide free trials, and migration support.
