Ingres 11, now known as Actian X Hybrid Database, includes the record breaking analytic engine from Actian’s Vector to enable a new class of applications that can mix OLTP and analytic queries, with each query being directed to the appropriate execution engine. Actian X also includes two significant additions for application integration and monitoring. DataConnect for Actian X provides an end-to-end solution for designing, deploying and managing data integration, and the Actian Enterprise Monitoring Appliance (EMA) can use Nagios compatible plug-ins now in Actian X to monitor Ingres environments.
Actian X also contains many new geospatial, performance, ease-of-use and security features. A few of the highlights are: ArcGIS plug-in, query optimizer reuse heuristics, automatic log file rotation, IANA timezones, Y2K38 fix, blob encryption and AES password encryption.
Ingres 10 is the latest version of the Ingres Database, an enterprise open source database. The release contains a number of major enhancements that will minimize application development time when migrating applications from other databases to Ingres. New features include support for multi-version concurrency control (MVCC), high-performing batched statement execution, full scalar subquery support, support for identifiers up to 256 characters long, and column-level data encryption. The release supports an automated, seamless migration from earlier versions of Ingres.
