The Kognitio Analytical Platform in-memory solution was described in the Forrester Wave as “innovative;” the Forrester analysts wrote that the platform “was designed from the start as an MPP (distributed) in-memory RDBMS, making extensive use of RAM-based processing for maximum performance. It supports data compression and can linearly add data capacity by adding nodes or appliances. Kognitio is typically scaled out by adding additional servers to the system, but Kognitio can also fully and automatically scale up by exploiting RAM, processor, or disk upgrades on each server.”

Kognitio has worked to perfect its ability to scale out in-memory analytical implementations, an ability developed over a generation of continuous product improvement. Kognitio officials noted that the company’s focus on True In-Memory(SM) computing enables companies to obtain greater insights in less time than from competing solutions. The ability of the Kognitio Analytical Platform, operating in a massively parallel processing (MPP) environment, has delivered proven results for companies worldwide, letting them do business more effectively and profitably. At the same time, Kognitio innovations such as the Kognitio Cloud™ have allowed a new breed of company to emerge, giving them the power to take advantage of analytics previously available only to large enterprises.
