Containerized Kognitio is now available
Today, Kognitio announced that its ultra-fast, high concurrency SQL engine is now available to deploy in a containerized environment.
Kognitio’s in-memory massively parallel architecture is a natural fit for containerized deployment. Its powerful SQL and no-SQL analytical capabilities can be quickly provisioned to provide the agility that modern businesses require.
CTO, Andy MacLean, explained the benefits: “Containerization significantly expands the reach of Kognitio. Customers now have the ability to run on all major cloud platforms and on-premise Kubernetes farms. This means we can bring high performance analytics to more customers than ever before.”
Kognito has seamless integration with data storage layers such as AWS S3, GCS, HDFS and MapR-FS. Direct use of metastores such as Hive and AWS Glue mean Kognitio can access data without requiring additional ETL processes. Kognitio’s scalability and “intelligent parallelism” ensures that it takes full advantage of resources available in the containerized infrastructure resulting in huge SQL query throughput and high concurrency to serve all enterprise users.
Kognitio works with all the popular business intelligence and query tools such as Tableau, Microsoft PowerBI, Zeppelin etc so users can use the appropriate tool for their application. End user dashboards render quickly and data science queries return in seconds or minutes rather than minutes or hours.
Containerized Kognitio is available to download for free as a Docker image from https://hub.docker.com/r/kognitio/kognitio

The popularity of containerized infrastructure continues to accelerate . By utilizing technologies, such as Docker, IT teams have an orderly way to package software stacks into a single unit. These self-contained applications make installation easier and are fully portable. Orchestration technologies, such as Kubernetes, are used to deploy and administer these applications easily.
For more than a generation, Kognitio has pioneered the development of scale-out, in-memory software for big data analytics. Kognitio provides an ultra-fast, high concurrency SQL layer that allows modern analytics and data visualization tools to maintain interactive performance, even when the data volume is large and the user count high. Kognitio is available in AWS Marketplace fully integrated with S3 and Glue, as a Docker container image and fully integrated with YARN on Hadoop. It can also be installed on standalone hardware infrastructure. It contains extensions to allow other programming languages like Python or R to be embedded directly within a query and executed in parallel to turbo-charge complex data science processes which do not normally work efficiently in SQL.
